    Russian Aerostats radar will be fitted with Israeli SPYDER missiles to give India an edge on the border with Pakistan

    New Delhi (Sputnik) — Russian Aerostats radar is back to give Indian armed forces the teeth along India’s border with Pakistan. In the major overhaul of obsolete air defense system along the border, the Russian system will be deployed with Israeli SPYDER air defense missile this year.



    Defense sources told Sputnik delivery of Russian Aerostats radar is expected to start in a few months and will be fitted with Israeli EL/M-2083 early-warning radars. India will replace its age-old air defense system at six air bases and some other critical locations along western border with SPYDER, which will replace Soviet-era OSA-AKM and ZRK-BD Strela-10M

    Don't we have our own L-Band Radars EW Surveillance Radars !???
    We worked with the Israelis on the LRTR/Swordfish (A more sophisticated, high power and long range system with some what similar role) back in the early 2000s...We eventually made our own T/R modules...Signal Processors....Software.....and a lot of other different things.

    Couldn't we have made our own cut down counterpart to the 2083s !?

    Russia will only deliver the Aerostats, the radars will either be Indian or Israeli.

    Holy Moly! Reminds me of Kirov airships from Red Alert game. But seriously, having a long time suspended Early Warning platform makes a lot of sense, especially if it consumes no/very little fuel.
