Moscow sent its latest #S400 Triumf and Pantsir-S1 surface-to-air missile systems to the #Balkans for their first ever exercise abroad.
The S-400s, along with a battery of Pantsirs, were deployed at Batajnica Air Base, 25km from #Serbia’s capital, Belgrade, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Thursday. They are there to take part in the ‘Slavic Shield 2019’ joint military drill.
It is the first Russian-Serbian exercise of its kind, as well as the first time Moscow’s state-of-the-art air defense missile systems have taken part in a drill abroad.
