SP's Aviation - - MARKETING -

On Oc­to­ber 5, 2018, in New Delhi Rosoboronex­port signed a con­tract to sup­ply In­dia with the S-400 Tri­umph lon­grange air de­fense mis­sile sys­tems (ADMS).

“The S-400 sup­ply agree­ment with In­dia is a new land­mark in the his­tory of mil­i­tary-tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion be­tween our coun­tries. The deal demon­strates the high­est level of trust and un­der­stand­ing be­tween In­dia and Rus­sia. I am sure that this agree­ment will also be a new im­pulse for strength­en­ing and deep­en­ing our co­op­er­a­tion in civil in­dus­try.” said the Head of Rostec State Cor­po­ra­tion Sergey Che­me­zov.

The main ad­van­tage of the S-400 lies in its ver­sa­til­ity. The sys­tem is able to en­gage both all types of aero­dy­namic tar­gets and bal­lis­tic mis­siles, up to in­ter­me­di­ate-range bal­lis­tic mis­siles. The Tri­umph is far su­pe­rior to its for­eign coun­ter­parts in max­i­mum en­gage­ment range and min­i­mum en­gage­ment al­ti­tude, em­place­ment/dis­place­ment time, as well as in a num­ber of other key char­ac­ter­is­tics.

“The con­tract for the sup­ply of S-400 Tri­umph air de­fense mis­sile sys­tems to In­dia is the big­gest for the en­tire pe­riod of mil­i­tary-tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Rus­sia and In­dia and the largest in his­tory of Rosoboronex­port. To­day we be­gin to ex­e­cute it” said the Head of Rosoboronex­port Alexan­der Mikheev.

Reg­u­lar meet­ings be­tween the lead­ers of Rus­sia and In­dia give strong im­pe­tus to the devel­op­ment of re­la­tions be­tween the coun­tries and play an im­por­tant role in ex­pand­ing and strength­en­ing mil­i­tary-tech­ni­cal co­op­er­a­tion, which has been un­der­way since 1960. Since then, ex­ports of Rus­sian mil­i­tary prod­ucts to In­dia have ex­ceeded $65 bil­lion.

“Rosoboronex­port is ready to co­op­er­ate with In­dia in any ar­eas. At the mo­ment, a num­ber of other ma­jor con­tracts for the sup­ply of Rus­sian weapons to In­dia are in the fi­nal stages of prepa­ra­tion and we hope they will be signed soon,” Alexan­der Mikheev said.

Rosoboronex­port is a Rostec Cor­po­ra­tion sub­sidiary be­ing a sole Rus­sian state agent au­tho­rized for a full scale of ex­port and im­port op­er­a­tions with de­fense re­lated prod­ucts with the for­eign na­tions.
