Zvezda 1/72 S-400 "Triumf" SA-21 Growler **inbox review** (by Erhan & Fatih Özüak)


Hello dear friend,

Triumf S-400 (NATO code SA-21 Growler) is a Russian anti-missile and anti-aircraft system of long- and medium-range, developed by the Almaz-Antey Space Company and intended to intercept aircrafts, drones, strategic cruise and ballistic missiles up to an altitude of 27.000 m. Triumf was created on the base of the existing C-300 missile system , but has significantly better tactical and technical capabilities (considering efficiency, link range and variety of targets). 
The system consists of command post and radar equipment with which links up to 6 air defence systems. Each system has multi-functional radar equipment and up to 12 launch tubes with different types of missiles. All Triumf AA systems are mounted on special vehicles with cross-country ability. The S-400 is in service in Russia since 2007 and exported to China, Turkey, Belarus, India with other countries in negotiation.

We have a special interest with the Turkish army's purchase of the S-400 from Russia.. When Zvezda just released this kit, bought many Turkish modelers. 

This review was supported by Fatih Özüak. First I used photos taken by Fatih. Then i replaced it with my photos. Thank him.

I also bought the Modelcollect S-400 (early) kit before... I will share its review as well.
