I have not seen 40N6, but I believe that it fits to the standard "300P" type missile container.

From kinematic point of view, even the Mach7 48N6 (missile of the S-300PMU-1 SA-20A) can fly (ballistic) over 300km.
The problem is the fire control radar (still a PESA) maximum target acquisition range, and the endgame target illumination for the SAGG.

Don't you mix it with the S-500 system? (Russian THAAD)

Great reading from Sean...
