Made to take on prioity targets such as AWACS fighter jets ballistic and cruise missles nothing ledd
S-400 is meant to Destroy Targets like the Following:
  • Strategic bombers such as the B-1, FB-111, and B-52H
  • Electronic warfare airplanes such as the EF-111A, and EA-6
  • Reconnaissance airplanes such as the TR-1
  • Early-warning radar airplanes such as the E-3A and E-2C
  • Fighter airplanes such as the F-15, F-16
  • Ballistic missiles (range up to 3,500 km)
And yes also at the same time High RCS and High Value Targets like AWACS, Refueling tankers, Transport Aircrafts etc.

Ukraine Su-27 was shot down by Russian S400 from Belarus 150KM away in Kyiv; setting a world record. The pilot was Ukraine’s legendary Colonel Oleksandr Oksanchenko who was well known for his airshow performances. Pakistan has lot to worry..

150 Kms? Than I can assure you that the Russian S-400 Stationed in Belarus which shot down the Ukrainian SU-27 used the 400 km (40N6E) missile.

This Su27 was not a recent one, and lacks of up to date electronic counter measure system. It helps.
Regardless of whether the SU-27 was a decent 1 or not, I know that out the the Russian S-400 located in Belarus used either the range: 400 km (40N6E missile) or the 250 km (48N6 missile).

Russia hasn't expended any area defense systems during the Ukraine War.. It has only lost some short range mobile SAM systems in Ukraine.. Russia doesn't need IRANIAN SAM systems..

Well it was shot down. If we go by same logic, Rafale exceptional performance in Libya was against more decrepit soviet era system. So what is good for goose is good for gander.
If west can boast about system capability fighting sanctioned state, you can give Russia same benefit of doubt
