    ZHUKOVSKY (Moscow region), June 27 (RIA Novosti)

    Russia will start exports of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems to China no earlier than 2017, a source in the defense industry told RIA Novosti on the condition of anonymity.

    “An export version of the S-400 Triumph air defense missile will have been developed by 2017 with the Chinese to be the first clients,” the source said.

    Russia currently has four S-400 regiments - two in the Moscow region, one in the Baltic Fleet and one in the Eastern Military District.

    By 2020, Russia is to have 28 S-400 regiments, each comprised of two battalions, mainly in maritime and border areas.

    In early June, Russian Defense Ministry said there were no plans to export the S-400, which will be produced only for the Russian Armed Forces.

    The S-400 Triumph, which succeeds the Soviet-era S-300, is a medium- to long-range surface-to-air missile system that can effectively engage any aerial target, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and cruise and ballistic missiles at up to 400 kilometers and an altitude of up to 30 kilometers.

    China has a missile that can shoot down Agni-series missiles in their middle course. S-400/500 probably represents a more flexible solution due to its mobility, but in terms of pure capability China has something much better.

    Last time I heard Russians had a deal with Chinese on Su-35, how does that end up? Are we looking at another drama both directed and enacted by Russians? Are they going to cancel it quoting potential IP violation by Chinese AGAIN?
