- Reaction score
SOC said:It's not replacing anything, but rather complementing the 250 km range 48N6DM. Most S-400 batteries seem to be deployed with eight TELs out of twelve possible, one theory is that the new missile is larger and requires a new TEL, which will be deployed in each battery to make up the difference.
I thought the main difference was the flight profile. That the 40N6 flew a high, semi-ballistic profile with an off-board sensor providing updates to enable the over-the-horizon shots. ???
