    Russian S-400 missiles to go into serial production

    Russian long range ballistic missiles for S-400 Triumph surface-to-air missile systems will go into serial production in the autumn, a leading missile manufacturer said on Friday.

    Earlier media reports said the S-400 missile system was incomplete as long range ballistic missiles, among others, had not been adopted for it.

    "On December 26, 2009 the preliminary tests were finished and the missile was put forward for state tests," Kommersant daily quoted the general director of Almaz-Antei, Igor Ashurbeili, as saying.

    "In the third quarter of 2010 we should finish them, along with combat duty launches, and then put it [the missile] into serial production in the fourth quarter," he added.

    According to Ashurbeili, there were no technical failures or difficulties concerning the long range missile tests.

    "The tests of S-400 missile lasted for about 3 years...We are bewildered by the bacchanalia of rumors and slander concerning the issue as an ordinary working process is going on," he continued.

    Ashurbeili added that the situation regarding the production of missiles after 2012 is unclear as Almaz-Antei does not have "any signed contracts for 2012".

    The S-400 Triumph boasts unique characteristics. It can destroy any air target, including aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles, and cruise and ballistic missiles within a range of 400 kilometers and an altitude up to 30 kilometers. The system is almost three times more efficient than its Russian and foreign counterparts.

    There are no plans so far to export the S-400. It will be produced only for the Russian Armed Forces. An additional two systems will be deployed by the end of 2010.

    Patriots are last ditch against incoming Ballistic missiles, They were offered to India but we didnt bought them.

    S-400 would be useful for Anti-AWACS role. We already brought S-300 and station them near delhi

    S-400 is one of the best Airdefence system. It's range is 300-400 Km. We should go for it. S-400 + AAD/PDV will make our defence system in excellent shape.

    For anti AWACS role Russia has already introduced the Novator K-100 and K-142 long burn missiles. S-400 is regarded as a anti ballistic missile system

    S-300 range 75-125 Km and S-400 range is 300-400 Km. S-400 is upgraded version of S-300 with some new features.
     
  10. i think with our indegeneous bmd programme maturing fast and the phase 2 is to be completed by 2016 we should not go for patriot or s-300/s-400.our lower layer aad can be modified as a sam as predicted by drdo scientist.thus it can fulfill a similar role to s-400/s-300 or patriot.also i think for bmd we need dedicated platform as sam like patriot and s-300 can provide very limited defence against ballistic missiles.

    If there is one thing Russians are deadly in (among many other things of course), that is SAM/BMD systems. S-400 is a beast. With the development of S-500 going on, Russians are going to ensure that any country which acquires these systems would be immune to any aerial invasion.

    I really hope Pradyumna and Ashwin BMD is of class when it comes out (hopefully it will be activated nationwide by 2014-15).

    Are the Russians helping us in our nascent BMD program? or it the Israelis? A very effective BMD is very crucial to safeguard Indian prime cities.
