RUSSIA DEPLOYS S-400 MISSILE COMPLEX TO THE FAR EAST
Tuesday, July 28, 2015

MOSCOW - Russia has deployed S-400 Triumf (SA-21 Growler) air defense missile systems on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East, Pacific Fleet spokesman Roman Martov said.

Crews of the anti-aircraft missile regiment will be put on combat duty shortly, Martov added.

Combat positions have been assumed near the port cities of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky (home to the Pacific Fleet's main naval base), Yelizovo (home to the Fleet's air base), and Vilyuchinsk (home to the Fleet's submarine base).

The regiment set of S-400 air defense systems for the Kamchatka peninsula will consist of three battalions. The first batch of combat hardware for the S-400 regiment arrived in Kamchatka in February and the entire missile complex was delivered by June.

The S-400 Triumf is designed to replace the S-300 and S-300PMU2 throughout Russia. It is gradually being phased into service and is already in operation in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and in the Kaliningrad region. The S-400 can be equipped with very long-range missiles (up to 400km), long-range (250km) and medium-range (120km) missiles.

SAUDI ARABIA REQUESTING PAC-3 MISSILES AND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT
Wednesday, July 29, 2015

WASHINGTON - The U.S. State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) Missiles and associated equipment, parts and logistical support. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on July 28, 2015.

Saudi Arabia wishes to purchase 600 PAC-3 Cost Reduction Initiative (CRI) Missiles with containers and 8 PAC-3 CRI Test Missiles for fly-to-buy. With all other items and support, this deal is worth an estimated cost of $5.4 billion.

The proposed sale will modernize and replenish Saudi Arabia's current Patriot missile stockpile, which is becoming obsolete and difficult to sustain due to age and limited availability of repair parts.

The principal contractors will be Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control in Dallas, Texas; and Raytheon Corporation in Tewksbury, Massachusetts.

ADEN - A U.S.-operated unmanned air vehicle (UAV) performed another air strike on al-Qaeda members in Yemen. The air strike took place on July 30. A missile hit a vehicle carrying members of al-Qaeda while it travelled through Wadi Dikha in Abyan province, southern Yemen. The vehicle came from the southern city of Mukalla, a bastion of al-Qaeda.

Fighting in Yemen continues between pro- and anti-government forces. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has used the chaos in Yemen to take control of more territory.
