CHINA will soon receive control, rada station energy and support equipment spare parts and other components of S-400 missile system from Russia, it has learnt.
A source close to the Russian system of military cooperation , said already Moscow has made its first delivery of S-400 missile system components to China under a contract signed in 2014.
The source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media also said Russia’s Defense Ministry last year trained a group of Chinese soldiers to use the S-400 systems.
China was the first buyer of these anti-aircraft weapons. In 2014, Moscow and Beijing signed a contract on the S-400 systems under which Russia has to deliver to China six S-400 systems at a cost of some $3 billion.
The contract does not provide either technology transfer or licensed production of S-400 missile systems to China.
Last December, Turkey announced that it had concluded an agreement with Russia for the purchase of two S-400 systems by early 2020.
