Description: The 40N6E S-400 anti-AWACS missile is a extremely long range Surface-to-Air Missile designed to engage low maneuverable aerodynamic targets at 400 kilometers. The new missile will be the weapon of choice against Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft, tankers and electronic warfare aircraft. Its guidance system will consist of both an active and a semi-active radar seeker.
The 40N6E S-400 anti-AWACS missile will be integrated on the S-400 Triumf air defense system engaging low maneuverable aircraft at long ranges. Basically, it is a ballistic surface-to-air missile which completed the preliminary tests in December 2009 and is expected to go into serial production in the fourth quarter of 2010. The missile has been under development at least since 2003.
