I open this topic for my all time favourite SAM system.
The S-300PS Volhov-M6 (export version S-300PMU) [SA-10B Grumble] is the ultimate Soviet SAM system of the '80s.

After synthesizing all the lessons learned during the conflicts of the '60~'70s, Soviet union developed the first 'double digit' SAM, answering all the challenges depicted in the SAM SIMULATOR situations...

- completely mobile system, capable of shooting 5 minutes after stop
- can engage 6 targets parallelly, with 12 missiles (doing Mach6!!!)
- 48 ready to launch missiles, no missile reload time
- 75km range (with V-500R 5V55R)
- hard (almost impossible) to jam V-500R 5V55R (Grumble Mod.1) missiles
- hard to find RPN (fire control radar), only the targeted plane can detect the digitally controlled, narrow pencil-beam
- automatical HARM detection, and acquisition
- detecting ultra low flying targets
- easy to use digital interface
