PAK SCAN: Strategic Anxiety Feared As India Inks Multi-Billion Dollar Missile Deal With Israel

NEW DELHI – India has inked a $2.5 billion missile deal with Israel to jointly develop a medium-range surface-to-air missile system for Indian military stirring anxiety among the south Asian members.

The multi-billion contract between the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) was approved by India’s Cabinet Committee on Security, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ahead of his visit to Israel, according to Indian media.

The MR-SAM missile with a range of 50 km-70 km is the latest in a series of other variants of surface-to-air missile systems for the Indian Navy and Air Force being jointly manufactured by both countries.

As per the deal, five regiments of the missile, which consists of 40 units and 200 missiles, will be developed.

‘The system will be based on the older Barak system of Israel, which is in use in India. It is being changed as per requirements,’ a defense source was quoted as saying.

The system, which will be manufactured in India with 80 per cent indigenous content, would play a crucial role in developing the target homing system, the source said, adding delivery of the system would begin in 2023.

India and Israel are also in advanced stage of negotiations for the purchase of two more long-range Phalcon Airborne Warning And Control System (AWACS).

But why 72 months why we ink deals which always take so long .. I didn't mean we are facing an imminent war with paki s or Chinnie s ..But still by the this Missile system gets delivered our adversaries would have not gone to the next level or create counter measures for it ???? if its on the Existing Barrak system cant we make it even faster to manufacture and deploy .. This is where we have to give credit to chinni s though they are churning our junk after junk out of their mega factories they do it in shorter time frame ..
