    They have much, much worse tactics up their sleeves. They generally employ these tactics against third world countries.

    For instance if a start-up/SME in Asia, Africa comes up with a product (any product, not necessarily related to defence) that can rival a US, UK product or service, US government or companies hire local criminals to bump off the start up owner. They make these killings look like an accident so that such killings do not arise any suspicion.

    They claim to offer the most morally mature and advanced and most civilised society model, yet they resort to tactics even their rivals and mortal enemies don't stoop to...

    Ironic that the boy who is crying wolf is so far more dangerous than any pack of wolves it is almost funny...

    Probably true but they will often steal it, or failing that buy it first and claim it as their own... and of course there is always the option of claiming it is necessary and a matter of national security to seize it legally using police officers to break in and take anything and everything related to the technology in question.

    The sad thing is that they are worse than the other guys they claim to be saving us from... as one person said during the 1990s in the criminal chaos... the gangsters are worse than the KGB... the KGB had rules and morality, the gangsters do as they please and might kill you even if you do fully cooperate... in this analogy the gangsters are threatening you with fairy tales of the KGB being worse and you are lucky to have your freedom and democracy... to be robbed by them.

    Well the funny thing is that thanks to their internet people around the world can see how shitty they are, how their hollywood propaganda sucks, how their democracy is not a democracy ....

    Their empire last from 1991 with the fall of ussr till today when no one likes them anymore and they are losing their leadership in almost everything. They are becoming a lambda country with no more power.

    S-400 SAM for India - Page 8 Empty Russia starts production of S-400 defence missile systems

    Russia has started the production of S-400 long-range surface-to-air defence missile systems, with plans to deliver them to India by 2025.

    Russian deputy chief of mission Roman Babushkin said that the initial batch of the missile systems will be delivered by October this year, with the remaining batches expected to join the Indian Air Force (IAF) by 2023.

    In May 2018, India and Russia completed negotiations for the procurement of S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems to be deployed with the IAF in a deal valued at approximately Rs400bn ($5.92bn).

    The initial agreement was signed between the countries in 2016.

    India Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said that the system can offer air defence coverage to vulnerable areas or points.

    Manufactured by Russian state-owned company Almaz-Antey, S-400 is an upgraded version of the S-300 and is capable of engaging and destroying targets such as cruise missiles, stealth aircraft, drones and medium-range ballistic missiles.

    Press Trust of India reported that the missile was earlier available only to the Russian Defence Forces and has been in service in the country since 2007.

    Recently, members of the Iraqi Parliament announced that the country was considering the purchase of the system.

    Lawmakers in the country noted the government’s decision to go ahead with negotiations for the purchase of these missile systems.

    According to a Pentagon report titled ‘Iran Military Power’ in November last year, Iran showed interest in purchasing S-400 systems and Bastian coastal defence systems from Russia.

    In July last year, Turkey’s Ministry of National Defence took delivery of the first components of S-400 systems in Ankara and later on announced plans in November to start their testing in spite of pressure from the US to stop the programme.
