    India Interested in Russia’s Missile Systems: Russian Air Forces

    [​IMG]

    MOSCOW, September 3 (RIA Novosti) – India’s Air Force commanders have expressed interest in the Russian surface-to-air missile systems in the course of the joint Russian-Indian Air Force exercise “Aviandra-2014”, Maj. Gen. Sergey Babakov told journalists Wednesday.
    “They have expressed great interest in our systems, they probably need to modernize their weapons arsenal,” Maj. Gen. Babakov, head of the Russian Air Force's anti-aircraft missile troops, said.
    India is particularly interested in Russia’s S-400 (SA-21 Growler), S-300PM (SA-10d/e), Pantsir-S1 (SA-22 Greyhound) and Buk surface-to-air missile systems, according to Maj. Gen. Babakov.
    The “Aviandra-2014” drills are the first ever joint Russian-Indian air force exercise, which involves joint flights with mixed Russian-Indian crews on Su-30 SM “Flanker-C” aircraft and Mil Mi-35 “Hind E” helicopters. The drills, which will continue through September 5, are taking place at the Pogonovo and Ashuluk testing ranges in Russia’s Voronezh and Astrakhan regions.
    The Indian troops arrived in Russia on August 25.
    Russia and India are major partners in the field of military cooperation. Over 70 percent of all military equipment used by the Indian Armed Forces was produced in Russia or the Soviet Union.
    The countries are working together to create new weapons and have agreed to jointly develop a fifth-generation fighter jet and military transport aircraft.

    No Not one more programme which can potentially kill our ABM programme. However slow we are,there is a good progress in ABM programme. Hopefully intrest is to just learn the working of their ABM systems.

    Russia is only country that can offer cutting edge technology at cheapest rates now you can't have cake & eat it too .Just try to lease a nuclear sub from any country or ask for Talvar class ship at the same cost the Russian offer's .
    Now a days Russia bashing trend seems to be started ,as India is involved with military deals with other countries paid news are made to show Russia in bad color .If Russia is to be blamed for defective product then the IA is equally responsible for not doing the inspections properly or getting sold for few bucks.
    Indian Defense Orgs are bad at absorbing TOT & people blame Suppliers , DRDO sat on the Boforce artillery Blueprints for years then all of a sudden they realized that they actually bought TOT with the deal .Be it Russians or any other supplier they won't reveal there critical component secrets so as to let a country to become a competitor in the future

    Russia would not offer the 77N6-N/N1 and 9M96 ABM missiles with S-400 export versions. Export version has only SAMs

    There would be no threat to Indian BMD from S-400

    Missiles for export are:
    40N6 - 400km 'AWACS Killer' against HVTs
    48N6DM - 250km against strategic areal assets, Fighters/UAVs etc.
    9M96E2 - 120km against Fighters/UAVs etc.
    9M96E - 40km against Fighters/UAVs etc.

    If Russia agrees, India should jump into the deal immediately. Our own long range SAMs (120km & 200+km) are still a decade away. Ultra range SAMs (400km) are minimum 2-3 decades away, if ever.

    Delusion of Grandeur.
    This Russian bashing only shows that we are fools who could not negotiate contracts. Wonder why Russians could not screw Chinese?

    As regards to the SAM system I believe we should go for it.

    S-300VM- For protection of army corps and strategic installations. (Long Range SAM)
    Akash- For protection of regiments and air defence (Medium Range)
    TOR-M1 & Tungushka- FOR Short range protection
    IGLA-MANPADS

    We already have S-300, its modernised version , S-400 can be procured in moderate numbers in LR config.
    However, more priority should be given to MANPADS. That tiny thing can raise hell for enemy fighters !
    Do we actually need Buk? I mean , doesnt Akash already serves that purpose?

    All hail Russia ! Hindi- Russi Bhai Bhai ! :)

    Indigenization does not just magically occur over night, it is a long and delicate process. We cannot ignore the needs of today, hoping and praying for equivalent self produced products. Russia has always been our long and dependable ally and what is best in each situation should be left to the commanders and experts. We should always at least study both options and in many cases foreign purchases make sense. Really shocked and disappointed in some of our careless members offending our greatest military ally by calling their products "junk".

    You dont even know who sat on bofors blue print.

    It was OFB , UPA leadership and army combo. Until general V.K. SIngh wrote a letter about the bofors blue prints and tech lying unused with OFB nothing happened.
    What is even more pathetic is the general has to write a letter because his appeal with then defence minister was not given any consideration and the MOD sat on it for some time.

    DRDO has nothing to do with it.

    Try to learn something before posting about a subject.

    DRDO is developing a separate higher caliber 155 mm gun with a private sector partner.
