The S-300V air defense missile system was developed to engage short- and
intermediate-range ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, strategic and tactical
aircraft, as well as early warning and electronic warfare aircraft. It was
designed to counter the threat posed by Lance and Pershing ballistic missiles.
The main role of the S-300V is to protect task forces and vital industrial and
military installations against massed air attacks. Its reporting name in the
West is SA-12 or Gladiator/Giant.
Some components of the S-300V system were deployed in 1983. All components
entered service with the Soviet Army in 1988. Recently it has been reported that
production of all S-300 series missiles, including export versions, will be
stopped in Russia in favor to the newer S-400.
The S-300V is a mobile air defense system. All of its elements are mounted on
special tracked chassis.
First production version of the S-300V had a range of 100 km and could reach
targets at an altitude of 30 km. It could engage ballistic missiles at an
altitude of 25 km.
