Combat crews of the complexes have started receiving equipment on the territory of the 4th state central interspecific training ground of the Russian Ministry of Defence Kapustin Yar.

In the near future, the anti-aircraft gunners of the Southern Military District will conduct missile launches, after which they will march to the area of combat duty.
