    I'm yet to see a credibile source. RFI means there is still a huge requirement. If this huge deal of $900 million was signed 7 years back then there won't be an RFI or evaluation. @Hellfire

    DRDO QRSAM is for IA. BEL is building a separate facility to produce these in huge numbers.

    Hence my 'speculative' approach earlier. However, FORCE did report as provided in link so my speculation that it is stop gap off the shelf procurement as reported about immediate procurements in aftermath of surgical strikes ... maybe credible.

    Our AD Missile groups that is 501 and 502 AD groups, remain formidable with the SA-6 in their inventory.

    The operators swear by their equipment .... has an optical guidance in addition to RADAR and IR guidance in it too!!!

    My problem is with '$900 million deal in 2009'.

    Immediate procurement in small numbers cleared this year is a possible scenario.

    Yeah .... that is our Indian journalism ..... what can be said.

    Most likely - an emergent procurement till as such time DRDO gets online.

    From SIPRI TRADE Register for India.

    Indian Airforce had 18 SPYDER MR SAM systems on order.

    The first two systems were delivered and operational by 2015!

    The Indian Air Force will in the next few weeks finish weaving a security web with the Israeli SPYDER air defence missile system on the western borders.

    The Indian Air Force will in the next few weeks finish weaving a security web with the Israeli SPYDER air defence missile system on the western borders in a bid to strengthen its preparedness to strike down any aerial threat from Pakistan.

    The induction process was delayed by over three years due to the nonavailability of Czech-made Tatra trucks on which the missiles were to be carried.

    "The SPYDER missile system is already in the process of deployment along the western borders where it will help in tackling any aircraft, cruise missile, surveillance plane or drone that tries to violate our airspace," senior defence sources told MAIL TODAY.

    WHAT IS SPYDER?

    The SPYDER (Surface-to-air PYthon and DERby) is a low-level, quick reaction missile (LLQRM) to neutralise hostile targets up to 15 km away and at heights between 20 and 9,000 metres. The Python-5 is currently the most capable air-to-air missile (AAM) in Israel's inventory, while the Derby is an active radar homing AAM that provides the SPYDER missile system with a fireand-forget option.

    "The IAF will use the SPYDER along with the made-in-India Akash surface-to-air missile which has a little longer effective range of 25 km as part of a layered approach to defend vital assets and locations in the country," the sources stated.

    DEAL MADE IN 2008

    The SPYDER deal was completed by the IAF with Rafael and Israeli Aircraft Industries (IAI) in 2008 and supplies were to begin in three to four years. But the process got delayed due to the unavailability of the Tatra trucks, which got mired in a controversy over bribery allegations.

    "Due to the lack of heavy specialised trucks, changes had to be made in the contract with the vendors and a made-in-India truck has been used for carrying the SPYDER system, which has been tested extensively resulting in delays," the sources said.

    Both the SPYDER and Akash are all-weather missiles and the process to seek and engage an aggressive aircraft or missile is automatic. Besides aircraft and UAVs, they can also neutralise lowlevel cruise missiles.

    The IAF has taken a slew of measures to strengthen its air defence capabilities in the recent past as it is also going to deploy another air defence system called the Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM) system from Israel, which can strike down targets at 50-70km.

    The force would receive a major boost when it starts getting the S-400 air defence missile system from Russia, which can take out targets at 400 km and can be very effective against enemy AWACS (Airborne Warning And Control System) and cruise missiles at great distances.
