Many people are led to believe that the Russian Forces are inferior, especially relating to their weapons capabilities. We should note that the Russians are very experienced in the art of war and that should count in assessing their capabilities. They have survived two major invasions, once by Napolean Bonaparte's forces and the other by Hitlers's 6th army, and because of the incidents they have vowed that they will always be in a position to stave off any possible attack.

I don't think that speaks about their skills as a competent fighting force, because when they fought against Hitler's army they were practically canon fodder. A majority of their army was completely devastated at the time. Not to mention they are still locked to practically 80's tier gear.

S-400s have replaced some S-300 units but not very many that's why the S-350s are coming out. The S-500 was made for different reasons. S-500s were to counter ICBMs but instead they made the A-235 and now the S-500 will take out Jamming and AWAC Aircraft.
and the pic was taken in Tajikistan

When will the S-500 be in service? Does it have an export version, if so what is the downgrade components?
