    Russia readying to supply S-400 missile systems to India


    June 1, 2017 | UPDATED 22:55 IST
    Narendra Modis ongoing visit to this Russian city.

    India had announced on October 15 last year a deal on the Triumf air defence systems from Russia, worth over USD five billion, and collaborate in making four state of art frigates besides setting up a joint production facility for making Kamov helicopters.

    The deals were announced following talks held between Prime Minister Modi and Russian President Putin on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit held in Goa.

    The S-400 Triumf long-range air defence missile system has the capability to destroy incoming hostile aircraft, missiles and even drones at ranges of up to 400 km.

    India and Russia have been in talks for over a year for the purchase of at least five systems of S-400 that will be a game changer in the region.

    It is capable of firing three types of missiles, creating a layered defence, and simultaneously engaging 36 targets. PTI AKJ AKJ

    We need BMD in top priority. S400 can be a part of it. Our development cycle and decision making could some day become textbook case studies.

    What defence we have against ballistic missiles as on today? Nothing. I will be surprised if S400 joins our defence before 2020.

    Nope, not an issue with money but Modalities, India needs to be wary of dealing with these guys, give them an inch and they will take a mile.

    For this reason, I don't expect the deal to be signed before 2019 to be honest.

    Barring the legacy systems, we are looking at various combinations including Akash (not the most modern but can make up numbers), spider, MRSAM, S400 (three types of missiles) and then our two types of BDM (long way to go IMO).

    So S400 is actually very important, given the comprehensive coverage and maturity.

    There is too much negativity with Russia , just because we have been dealing with them for quite some time.

    Reality is, give an inch to anyone, and Israel ,France and USA will scavenge us much more.

    Russia is actually the most flexible and reliable partner out of them.

    Of course if we will give loop holes, they will kick us.

    No doubt the Indian side and its failures in the past to properly draft agreements have been at fault in the past. But that said, Russia has consistently (post USSR) let down the Indian side and engaged in a predictable pattern; delays, cost-ovveruns, defective products and poor after-sales support. This is very much unique to Russia.

    Had these loop holes been with west, the damage would have been much higher, that is all I would say.

    Russia still today is the best option for us.

    Possibly.

    Don't agree bro, their economy is in freefall and thus they are, more thna ever, dependant on milking India. In a decade or so, the R&D intertia from the USSR will be gone and they will have nothing world-beating to offer India.

    Drop the idea that " RUSSIA " has only one task, milking India.

    Every nation selling products to us, is trying to do it.

    Decade is a very long time. But then lets see.
