BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – S-400 anti-aircraft missile divisions have deployed to Yevpatoriya in Crimea, as shown in footage released on Friday.

“We effectively cover the whole airspace of the Crimea from low to high altitudes,” Division Commander Alexander Taranov said.

“This allows us to track up to 100 targets and effectively strike up to 12 of them. The maximum speed of targets is up to 5 km per second which we can strike so we can intercept existing hypersonic missiles,” he added.

12 targets = 2 thirds of a squadron.
6 end left able to shoot at the batteries and there are impressive anti-air-defenses air-to-ground weapons…
If it’s all that S-400 can do (I don’t think so), it’s a bit lame, especially if 4 launchers with each 4 missiles can’t engage 16 targets at once!
