Description: The 40N6 is an extremely long range, hypersonic, Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) designed to engage low maneuverable aerodynamic targets at ranges of up to 400 kilometers. The new missile is the weapon of choice against Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft, tankers and electronic warfare aircraft which are highly valuable and also feature low maneuverability. Its guidance system will consist of both an active and a semi-active radar seeker. The 40N6 was developed to be integrated along the S-400 Triumf air defense system engaging primarily low maneuverable aircraft at long ranges. Nevertheless, the missile seems to be able to engage fighter aircraft, helicopters and cruise missiles. Basically, the 40N6 is a ballistic surface-to-air missile which completed the preliminary tests in December 2009 after being under development since at least since 2003.
