It was reported that, China's initial delivery of S400 missiles from Russia were damaged during transportation. Hence new missiles were delivered.

TASS reported, citing its military-diplomatic source, that the test launches of the S-400 Triumph missiles will be made at one of the Chinese testing ranges in early June.

Two missile launches, against Ballistic and supersonic targets are planned.

Earlier, the CEO of the Russian State Corporation Rostec Sergey Chemezov said that the batch of surface-to-air missile systems (SAM) S-400 that was designed for China had to be destroyed. The ship that was carrying the missiles was caught in a storm and the systems were damaged.
