PERU (BNS): Russia is planning to develop a long range air defence complex based on S-300 SAM jointly with Turkey, said Rosoboronexport head Sergei Ladygin.

"Russia is ready to offer as part of the tender a joint Russian-Turkish product based on the Antey-2500 system (the export version of the S-300 system)," Ladygin was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

The advanced version of the S-300 missile system, called S-300PMU1, has a range of over 150 kilometers and can intercept ballistic missiles and aircraft at low and high altitudes, making it effective in warding off air strikes, the news report added.

The S-300V/Antey 2500 (SA-12 Gladiator/Giant) consists of a new command vehicle, an array of advanced radars and up to six loader vehicles assigned to each launcher.
