Current operators[edit]

  •  Egypt : The S-300VM "Antey-2500" missile system was ordered in 2014, as part of a multi-billion Egyptian-Russian arms deal signed later that year.[10][11] The $1 billion contract comprises one regiment which includes 3 divisions, a command post and other external elements.[12][13] In 2015, Russia started delivering the system components and the Egyptian soldiers began their training to operate the system in Russian training centers.[14] Before the end of 2016, all system components were delivered to Egypt.[15][16] Russia is in talks with Egypt on the delivery of additional Antey-2500 systems.[17]
  •  Iran: Russia is offering Iran the S-300VM instead of the S-300PMU1 to avoid a lawsuit over the cancellation of the latter.[18][19] Recently in 2015/16 both S300PMU and S300VM[dubious ] are sold to Iran.[citation needed]
  •  Russia : ordered more than three S-300V4 divisions by 2015[20]
    • 77th Airdefence Brigade (Korenovsk) and 988th Airdefence Regiment (Gyumri) in the Southern Military District[21][22]
