Yes, it can.

But, as in all military equipment and usage we need to talk about probability and it is never 100%, never, no matter what some PR are talking. But S-400 have a chance and quite high probability when the Brahmos missile is expected and some conditions are satisfied.
and lets look why:

First, S-400 isn’t just launch vehicle with 4 tubes of missiles which you can see on pictures. It is the full complex of multiple radars for various distances and altitudes (too many to talk about all of them here) and command and control vehicles,

1/ Take this with a grain of salt, but the 92N6A fire-control radar used in Russian military #S400 systems seems markedly more capable than its export version (the 92N6E).
Note the claimed detection ranges for a target with a 4 m2 RCS:
92N6A: up to 480 km
92N6E: up to 250 km
2/ Photos of the data for the 92N6E is from a 2019 Almaz-Antey marketing brochure that was kindly sent to me by @konrad_muzyka
3/ Data for the 92N6A is from a local media news report on an event held by the 1490th SAM Regiment (Leningrad Oblast) (2nd Air Defense Division, 6th Air and Air Defense Army). News report can be viewed here (0:45):

Even after the 1962 Oct-Nov border war with India and Mao’s order for the PLA to return to pre-combat positions, since the Hu Jintao period, that entity has repeatedly flouted what may be termed as the “Chairman Mao LAC” by moving further and further into Indian territory... .
Just as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Balakot strike ended the confidence within GHQ Rawalpindi that India’s leaders would not permit any expansion of the low intensity terror and border conflict with Pakistan into territory under the control of the Pakistan military...
... the response of Indian troops at Galwan followed by the Modi app ban has surprised those within the CCP, who have long been comforted by the silo system of decision making in the Lutyens Zone ensuring that border hostilities not be followed by any effect on trade & commerce.

Hilarious- #Turkey-#USA closed that #FETO #Gulen chapter in a deal 2 years ago: #Brunson was sent back to US + Pledge to Not activate #Russua’s #S400 & unofficially dropping all extradition requests/pressures. - - - v.aa.com.tr/1909200
Of course “They” must keep up the appearances for the “Domestic” public consumption.

30.05.2020, #ABD'li bir general Irak'ın Kuzeyine ziyaretini #KürdistanBölgesi olarak isimlendirmiş. #PKK #KCK #PYD #YPG #FETÖ'ye destek veren #ABD'li yetkilinin açıklamasına şaşırdık mı? Hayır

#NATO/#Müttefikler arasında işbirliği kapsamında da olsa #ABD'nin kirli planlarını dikkate alarak, yakıt ikmali desteği bile yapılsa, #Suriye'de ortak devriye yapacak kadar işbirliği içerisindeki #Rusya ile özellikle #Karadeniz' konusunda #ABD yüzünden karşı karşıya gelmeyelim.
@veryansintvcom haberi çok daha güzel detaylandırmış.
#ABD'li General #EricHill’in “#Kürdistan” sözü kişisel bir tarif ya da gaf değil. #ABD'nin ve #Pentagon’un resmi politikası.👇👇

[Thread] The press conference btw @realDonaldTrump and @EmmanuelMacron today has been fascinating at many levels. The #ISIS part was in particular an excellent summary of the state of play...1/
While many commentators focused on the “#braindead” comment on #NATO in @PedderSophie ’s itw for @theeconomist, most of them missed the topic Pres. #Macron wanted to address with it...2/ economist.com/europe/2019/11…
The real question was : is the spirit of the alliance respected when a member (#Turkey) acts unilaterally in Northeastern Syria, endangers the fight against #ISIS and doing so harms a key security interest of other NATO members ? 3/

#Turkey had revealed to #Iranian intelligence of a network of #Israeli spies working in #Iran, including ten #Kurds who met #Mossad members in Turkey. Look where it got the Kurds now that #DeepState agenda of regime change in #Syria has been defeated.

Trump’s sanctions against Turkey result largely from Erdogan’s purchase of #S400 from #Russia. Interestingly #India too signed a deal worth $5.4 billion with Russia for S-400 in 2015. If US decide to sanction India, Reliance Defense may be destroyed. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…
Operation Timber Sycamore - The Shadow War in #Syria

How the #DeepState funded and trained #ISIS terrorists with the objective to topple Assad. The Operation now brought to a halt by Trump and finished off by Turkey.

Purchases from #Russia attract US #sanctions under the #CAATSA Act.

The US can issue waivers but only on a transaction-to-transaction basis.

The US still has NOT given #India a waiver on this #S400 deal despite requests. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…
Guess who is the main offset partner for the #S400 deal between #India & #Russia?

Yup - it’s Anil Ambani’s Reliance Defense.

Ambani signed a contract with Russia’s Almaz-Antey which makes S-400 potentially worth $6bn. greatgameindia.com/the-s400-deal-…

Tomorrow Sept.16 Ankara to host trilateral #Russia-#Iran-#Turkey summit on #Syria. It is expected to announce quite important decisions on, e.g. finalization of the Constitutional Committee & political process in general, #Idlib, return of #refugees, humanitarian aid. Stay tuned.
#Putin just landed in #Ankara for trilateral #Syria summit. Apart of #Syria related issues #Russia, #Iran & #Turkey will likely to discuss the recent attack on #SaudiArabia oil facilities which led to 19% increase of Brent price & will likely increase regional tensions.
#Putin & #Erdogan just finished bilateral talks. Instead of planned hour-long meeting they spent 2 hrs.
Topics discussed are quite evident judging by #Russia's lineup:
- #Lavrov
- FP aide Ushakov
- energy minister Novak
- defense minister #Shoigu
- #Syria special envoy Lavrentiev

14. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

Scoop di #Repubblica: #Trump ha "ordinato" a #Salvini "in chiave anti russa" di fare completare il gasdotto #TAP "ad ogni costo". (mini thread)
Ma stiamo parlando di #Trump "burattino dei russi e di Putin che lo ha fatto eleggere"?
Si, di quel Trump li.
(immagine: la testa di un lettore che si sia scordato di disattivare la funzione "pensiero critico" prima di iniziare la lettura, come da istruzioni del produttore)
Ma veniamo al merito: per gli #USA la realizzazione del #TAP è davvero tanto importante e per la Russia così letale? Partiamo dal consumo annuale di gas in Italia: 70 miliardi di m3 l' anno.
