Saudi Arabia agrees to purchase S400 missile defence systems from Russia
06 October 2017 Current Affairs: Saudi Arabia agreed to purchase S400 missile defence systems from Russia on the sidelines of a visit by Saudi King Salman to Moscow.

The S-400 Triumf is an anti-aircraft, anti-ballistic missile and anti-cruise missile defense system that has been in service with the Russian Army since 2007.

The system uses four missiles, a very-long-range 400 km missile, a long-range 250 km missile, a medium-range 120 km missile and a short-range 40 km missile.

This missile system will give Saudi Arabia a multi-layer defense ability against aerial threats.
