HUHAI /China/, November 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSVTS) believes that it will be economically viable to set up a maintenance center for S-300 and S-400 missile systems in China, FSVTS head Dmitry Shugaev told reporters.

“Considering that China continues to operate S-300 missile systems and given the delivery of new S-400 systems, the creation of a center for the after-sale support of the long-range defense systems would be logical and economically feasible,” he noted.

The agency’s director recalled that a maintenance center for the Tor-M1 air defense missile systems had been established last year. “Projects for full service support of helicopters as well as in the field of aircraft engine building are at different stages of development,” he added.
