    India twin seat  version of Pak-fa for sure will make many countries drool for many years..
    How nice they will look with Indian custom colors , it will definitively significantly raise the

    designed for India needs and requirements. So congrats for your stealth plane.  Smile


    well but one thing looks sure that first 2-3 sq of IAF are going to be Russian  version of T50 or FGFA to be bought off the shelf from Russia, indian specified versions will be rolled out laters after 2019 to be made in india with all parts and components supplied by sukhoi. Nonetheless FGFA is going to change the south asia military balance in very big way in india's favor along with S400 growlers

    The industrial cooperation with India IMHO is better for both countries in foreseeable future. Indians build industrial capacity (also helping to balance Chinese or western one) , cooperating with Russian both R&D and industry and once you use Russian solutions/standards not that easy McCain to disrupt this.

    BTW nothing makes politicians closer then common mutually beneficial trade unless we talk about Eastern Europe lol!

    Russia's S-400 Triumf missile systems to help India secure borders with Pakistan & China

    Post  Pinto on Sat Dec 19, 2015 7:49 am

    NEW DELHI: The government on Thursday approved the Rs 39,000-crore acquisition of five advanced Russian S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems, which have even rattled Nato countries because they can destroy incoming hostile aircraft, stealth fighters, missiles and drones at ranges of up to 400 km.


    The decision by the Manohar Parrikar-led defence acquisitions council (DAC), which will take some time to materialize into a deal after commercial negotiations, comes just ahead of PM Narendra Modi's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on December 24. TOI was the first to report on October 11 that the DAC was finalizing the S-400 acquisition -on a par with the soon-to-be-inked $5 billion deal for 36 French Rafale fighters in terms of sheer criticality -ahead of Modi's visit to Russia.


    The plan is to deploy three in the west (read Pakistan) and two in the east read China) to bolster the nation's air defence capability," said a source.
    With the IAF trying to steadily plug gaping holes in the country's air defence coverage, including protection of strategic assets like nuclear reactors, the S-400 will come as a major shot in the arm for the force. India will be the second customer for the S-400 -designated 'SA-21 Growler' by Nato. China is slated to get deliveries of six S-400 batteries from 2017 onwards after a $3 billion deal with Russia last year.



    The DAC also cleared other modernisation proposals worth Rs 25,985 crore, including the Rs 14,600-crore acquisition of six more regiments of the indigenous Pinaka multiple-launch rocket systems. The army already has two regiments of the 40-km range Pinaka systems, while two more were approved earlier. But the S-400 was the clear takeaway to add "real defence substance" to Modi's visit to Russia, which will also see the two countries ink the inter-governmental agreement for the over $1 billion project to manufacture 200 Russian Kamov Ka-226T light utility helicopters under the `Make in India' policy.






    As reported by TOI, India is also on course to acquire a second nuclear-powered submarine on a $1.5 billion lease from Russia. The S-400 contract will be among the largest-ever deals with Russia.

    S-400 SAM for India

    Post  Pinto on Sun Dec 27, 2015 5:21 pm

    Moscow: Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi hailed Thursday the "partnership" between their two nations as they oversaw the signing of energy and other deals.

    However no progress was announced on an anticipated purchase of S-400 missiles, Russia's top-of-the-line anti-aircraft defence systems.

    "I see in Russia a prominent partner in India's economic transformation," Modi said after the two leaders agreed to ease the visa requirements between the two nations that are part of the BRICS group of leading emerging market countries.

    They also oversaw the signing of several agreements involving Russia's state nuclear corporation Rosatom and railway monopoly Russian Railways, among others.
    India wants Moscow to take part in infrastructure projects as the Modi government seeks to overhaul the country's railway network and build nuclear energy plants to meet the growing electricity needs for its fast-growing economy.

    The two countries agreed on the location of a new Russian nuclear energy plant in the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, with Moscow already building a nuclear plant in the state of Tamil Nadu.

    Modi is seeking to ramp up the country's nuclear energy use to meet the rising energy needs, with a programme for at least 12 new reactors, as well as reduce its heavy dependency on coal, the worst greenhouse gas producing fuel.

    Modi said that Moscow and Delhi would also jointly produce Kamov-226 military helicopters as part of the Make in India initiative to have foreign companies manufacture their products in India.

    Putin for his part called Russia's ties with India a "privileged strategic partnership", praising the two nations' energy and defence cooperation.


    "There are plans to send large-scale supplies of oil and oil products to Indian refineries in the amount of 10 million tonnes annually over the next 10 years," Putin said after the talks.
    - S-400 deal close?


    However the two leaders were silent about the S-400, although India's top acquisition body was reported to have cleared the purchase of the air defence system ahead of Modi's trip.
    On Thursday, Indian firm Reliance Defence said it would work with the Russian manufacturer of the S-400 "on the entire range of air defence missile and radar systems" that India needs.
    But it was not immediately clear whether the two companies were close to a final deal on the missiles and the two leaders did not take any questions from reporters in Moscow.


    Dipankar Banerjee, a defence analyst at Delhi-based think tank Forum for Strategic Initiatives, said India was "vulnerable to Pakistan and China both in terms of missile attacks and air strikes" and that the S-400 systems were "very desirable" despite a hefty price tag.
    Russian business daily Kommersant said this week that Putin's one-on-one talks with Modi would decide the fate of the deal as the two still needed to sort out pricing disagreements.
    India could be in the market for as many as five systems, the paper said, quoting defence sources, with deals on Russian frigates also on the cards.

    The Moscow trip is Modi's first state visit to Russia since he became prime minister in 2014, but he and Putin have met several times at international events and even discussed the merits of yoga at a summit in the Russian city of Ufa last July.

    India, Russia negotiating sale of S-400 missiles to India: Russian envoy

    Post  Pinto on Mon Feb 15, 2016 1:39 pm

    India and Russia are actively negotiating regarding the sale of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems and the possibility of Russia leasing a second nuclear submarine, Alexander M Kadakin, Russian ambassador to India, told The Pioneer.

    Previously, there were reports suggesting the possibility of India inking a deal to purchase S-400 missile systems and taking on lease a second nuclear submarine during the Moscow visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Dec 2015. But no such deals were inked then.

    But now Kadakin has revealed about India possibly getting strategically important air defence systems, the S-400, which could be used to protect various Indian cities from enemy missile attacks. The S-400 air defence systems have been deployed in the Moscow region and at Hmeimim air base in Syria, where Russians have been operating from.

    The Indo-Russian relationship is Independent of the relationship with other countries, Kadakin said, and added: "We do not feel jealous when India acquires military hardware from other countries for its strategic needs ... " "Please name a country that can lease a nuclear submarine."

    Lately, India has been looking to US, Israel and France for military hardware, moving away from its traditional partner Russia for various reasons, some of those being mid-stage cost escalations and delays in the delivery.

    But Russia still remains the go-to partner when it comes to certain strategic areas of military co-operation involving key weapons hardware technology. PM Modi had called the Indo-Russian relationship as a "truly strategic" one.

    India already had INS Chakra, Akula-class nuclear-powered attack submarine on a 10-year lease from Russia. INS Chakra was commissioned into the Indian Navy in 2012. This will be the second nuclear submarine from Russia.

    "The hull of the submarine is ready but it has to be refurbished as per Indian needs after the talks are concluded," Kadakin said.

    The indigenously developed nuclear-powered submarine INS Arihant, built with Russian technical support, is currently undergoing sea trials.

    Kadakin further revealed that his country will open four service centres in India for the Su-30 MKI jets. He said that an announcement in this regard will be made soon.

    India is also looking at buying more MiG 29K fighter jets for INS Vikramaditya, he said. India has already ordered 45 MiG-29K/KUB aircraft.

    The Russian envoy said that the deal for India producing 200 Kamov Ka-226 helicopters has been concluded. This will lead to India producing these light utility helicopters with Russian help under the present government's "Make in India" initiative.

    India to reduce number of 9M96 Missiles to avoid duplication of Short Range SAMs and Save money.

    NEW DELHI: In a rare exercise, India's air defence plans have been altered after an intervention by defence minister Parrikar that may have saved the taxpayer Rs 49,300 crore in acquisitions over the next decade.

    Faced with the high cost of acquiring the Russian S 400 long range missile shield - the cutting edge system that can bring down incoming stealth fighters and missiles at a range of 380 km - the minister ordered a review of the 15 year long term plan to purchase new air defence systems upto 2027.

    The recently concluded review, which involved a technical study by the air force and an evaluation of all available air defence systems in the world, has resulted in a consensus decision to cut down on purchase plans of shorter range missiles, senior officials have told ET.

    Air defence strategy hinges around three layers - a short range system that protects high value installations upto 25 km, a medium range system that covers an area of around 40 km and a long range system for threats coming from further.

    Sources told ET that the revaluation conducted by the air force concluded that with the S400 acquisition, the long term acquisition plan for over 100 each Medium and Short range systems have been cut down. "The study found that we will require a much lesser number of the shorter range systems. Minister Parrikar convinced the air force that according to its layered defence plan, the long range system (S 400) would make the larger number of MR SAM and SR SAM redundant," a top official told ET. The S 400 is expected to cost $ 6.1 billion for five systems - the most expensive air defence system ever bought by India. But, on a per square km covered basis, if is the cheapest of known systems available globally.

    Interesting that they have broken off the smaller lighter S-400 missiles intended to be a cheaper smaller missile to defend the S-400 from direct attack.

    Of course the Russian military have done the same with the S-350 basically being the smaller missiles in a separate unit as a custom designed medium range system.

    I rather suspect TOR or Pantsir-SM will be used in the short range air defence role along with Morphei when it is ready too. (In the Russian military).

    Russia makes formal S-400 offer to India

    Post  Pinto on Tue Apr 19, 2016 12:20 pm

    The deal value is estimated to be $6 billion.

    Russia has formally offered its S-400 Triumph surface-to-air missile systems to India, a senior Russian defense official said on April 18.

    “The Federal Service has prepared a draft intergovernmental agreement on the supply of the S-400 systems to India and passed it on to our partners, so we are awaiting a response,” Vladimir Drozhzhov, deputy head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation (FSMTC) told TASS on the sidelines of the Defexpo India 2016 exhibition in Delhi.

    The deal value is estimated to be $6 billion.

    The Triumph S-400 is a new-generation medium and long-range anti-aircraft missile system.

    At a distance of 250 miles the system can strike planes, while at a distance of 40 miles it can hit tactical ballistic targets flying at a speed of three miles per second, as well as cruise missiles and ballistic missiles.

    Russia and India were expected to sign an agreement on the sale of the systems in December 2015 when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Moscow for an annual summit. Sources close to the situation tell RBTH that differences on the price held back the signing of an agreement. A deal is likely to be signed within the next few weeks, the sources add. Russia could also commence delivering the S-400 missile defense system to China by the end of the year.

    The long-range S-400 surface-to-air missile systems are used to defend the Khmeimim Russian military base in Syria.

    Conflicting reports on Russian sale of S-400 missile defense system to India

    Post  Pinto on Wed Apr 27, 2016 7:26 pm

    Russia and India are yet to sign a contract for the supply of advanced S-400 air defense systems, a senior Russian official said in response to an Indian claim, which said the deal was already signed.
    “The contract has not been signed yet,” the head of Russian state-owned technology giant Rostec Sergey Chemezov said

    Earlier Rao Inderjit Singh, Minister of State for Defense Production of India, said the deal was already signed. Singh is attending an international security forum in Moscow.

    Russia's Defense Ministry has not yet commented on the reports.


    The S-400 is the latest and most advanced of the long-range surface-to-air missiles produced by Russia. The Russian military is the only operator of the system, but China and India are expected to be the first foreign nations to receive it.

    Media reports in 2015 said that India wants to buy five S-400 battalions.

    Russia recently delivered a previous-generation S-300 variant of the air defense system to Iran, implementing a key defense deal between the two countries after lengthy discussions.

    India’s S-400 missiles can checkmate Pakistani Air Force : Pakistani Media

    Post  Pinto on Sat Apr 30, 2016 7:52 am

    The S-400, a Russian integrated air defense system, is the forthcoming state-of-the-art augmentation of the Indian military arsenal. Last December, India’s premier Narendra Modi and Russian president Vladimir Putin finalised the milestone deal. Dialogue on modalities led India to revise its need from 12 battalions or units to five at an undisclosed cost running into billions of dollars. So far, there is no confirmation as to when the deliveries will begin.

    The S-400 uses four different missiles along with a multilayered radar tracking umbrella to cover its entire performance envelope. When deployed along the border with Pakistan, the system will provide India with 600kms radar coverage and the option of shooting down a hostile aircraft or missile 400kms to 40kms outside its territory.

    Each S-400 battalion is equipped with eight launchers, a control center, radar and 16 missiles for additional use. The projectiles travel towards the target at blistering speed of 17,000kms an hour.

    India is set to become the second recipient after China in 2014. Kremlin is retiring the S-300 and S-400 to replace them with a more lethal S-500 missile system.

    Moscow has recently armed Tehran with an earlier version of a similar integrated air defense system called S-300PMU-2 Favorite. The Persians too have ordered five systems. Saudi Arabia was denied the sale after delivery to Tehran was hindered by UN sanctions.

    The S-400 Triumph missile defense system is a significant strategic upgrade in India’s military hardware in its pursuit to become a global power. With little domestic debate and no real threat, Delhi has been arming itself to match the Chinese military might. Though, Russian cooperation with China is at a far advanced level, India’s efforts have borne fruit too. Besides deal for nuclear powered-submarines, both are engaged in joint production of fifth generation T-50 (or PAK-FA) fighter jet, a projected counter weight to US F-22 Raptor.

    Over the last decade, India has checkmated Pakistan on the US front. Not only has Islamabad faced various pronounced sanctions but also severe political opposition in Washington over transfer of any sophisticated arms including the F-16s falcons.

    While India buys S-400s, its option to acquire upgraded US Patriot systems remains open too. Delhi’s hawkish arms shopping spree includes hypersonic missiles or glide vehicles, stealth bombers et al.

    Washington will continue to play a fundamental role in fuelling the arms race as part of its ‘Pivot to Asia’ policy, which envisaged China as the next global adversary. Being Beijing’s strategic partner, Islamabad fell out of favour with Washington. Pakistan’s policy makers did not do enough to control the damage, practically giving India a walkover. The odds stacked against the delivery of eight F-16 fighter jets symbolise the current state of Pakistan’s diplomacy in the US.

    While China may not fret over the S-400 system deal, it will have significant implications for Pakistan’s Air Force and missile programme both. Highly advanced stealth aircrafts or faster low observables ones or stealth cruise missiles can only dodge the integrated defense system. In the wake of an all out war, Pakistan can outnumber the Indian defense system by launching too many missile and fighter jet attacks, making it near impossible for the S-400s or Akash missiles to deny zero penetration in Indian airspace. Such an attack will come at a heavy price militarily and otherwise, with limited success. If the economy was performing as per potential, Pakistan could follow China’s suit and develop hypersonic multistage missiles.

    While the hypothetical scenario goes to show the soaring cost of war for Pakistan on the eastern front, preparedness for any aggression from the Indian side also requires significant increase in defense spending.

    More than the technological gulf, Islamabad’s biggest challenge for the next fiscal year will be poor economic policies and repayment of expensive IMF loans. Over the last decade, Pakistan has achieved little success in impressing upon unprecedented militarisation by India, upsetting the balance of power. Over the years, Islamabad’s diplomacy has been failing her successively as the foreign ministry has not only lacked vision but is also damningly slow in reacting to Delhi’s moves. Until Pakistan-India comprehensive dialogue bears fruit, the defense spending may not lessen for the long haul. Over the last decade, the situation has only gone from bad to worse.

    Indian Air Force to Get Russian S-400 Triumf Missile System in 2017

    Post  Pinto on Fri May 13, 2016 4:33 pm

    According to Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar, "The five firing units of the S-400 Long Range Surface to Air Missile system are planned for induction in Indian Air Force in the 13th plan period (2017-2022).

    NEW DELHI (Sputnik) — The Indian Air Force plans to introduce Russian S-400 Triumf Missile System to its military arsenal next year. The cost of the deal has not been divulged by India but according to other sources, India is likely to pay approximately USD 6 billion for five S400 units.

    Expressing enthusiasm over the performance of the S-400 Triumf Missile System, Parrikar said in Parliament today that the S-400 has better performance parameters compared to the S-300 in many respects, such as maximum and minimum target engagement range, minimum target engagement altitude, and maximum speed of target engaged. Parrikar also said that the S-400 is better in terms of the number of targets and maximum radar cross-section of targets engaged simultaneously as compared to the S-300. It also takes less deployment time as compared to the S-300.


    India's Defense Acquisition Council approved the purchase of the S-400 Triumf Missile Systems along with associated equipment and missiles from Russia. According to the Defense Minister, a separate contract has been signed for the supply of five Full Mission Simulators for SU-30 MKI aircraft with a Russian firm during 2015-16.

    Air Marshal Anil Chopra (Retd.) tells Sputnik:

    "The S-400 has many qualities. It has a very high range. Our 40-year-old existing air defense system has a range of only 20-25 kilometers. With S-300 and S-400 [systems], we can target enemy aircraft from a range of 250 kilometers. If we are to protect big cities like Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, this system will help us destroy enemy planes and missiles from quite a far range. Secondly, the S-400 is quite precise. The old system lacks precision. The S-400 has 95% precision hitting the target. The precision of our existing system is only about 80%."

    The S-400 is the most advanced air defense system in the world and many countries are vying to purchase the units including China. However, Russia has made it clear to prospective buyers that it will only sell the system to foreign countries after its own military requirements are fulfilled.

"By the end of 2016, the Russian armed forces will get the final five S-400 regiments, and Moscow will start full-scale work to export this system", - said the expert.

    Safonov stressed that China is the first in line for the supply of anti-aircraft missile systems. "Russia and China have warm and friendly relations and, by way of exception, the first set of S-400 machines will be sent to our partner as early as 2016", - the expert added.

    India to Fast Track Critical Defense Deals Including S-400 Defense System

    Post  Pinto on Fri Jun 24, 2016 2:24 pm

    The Indian Defense Acquisition Council's upcoming meeting is expected to take a final review of a number of critical defense deals that have been in limbo due to a number of reasons.


    The Defense Acquisition Council (DAC) under the chairmanship of Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar will have a decisive discussion on projects greater than 15 billion dollars on Saturday. High on the agenda is the procurement of Russia made S-400 air defense systems and armed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) including some indigenously made guns.

    Sources from the Ministry of Defense have said that India wants to fast track these critical purchases as some of the projects have been long pending. Russia formally offered its S-400 surface to air defense missile system to India in April this year. The DAC has not met in the last three months but, in May, Parrikar hinted in Parliament that the procurement would be completed soon.

    India to buy gamechanger S-400 worth $5 billion air defence system from Russia

    Post  Pinto on Sat Oct 15, 2016 5:22 pm

    The development comes as Russia hopes to stave off tough competition from the Americans and the Europeans to continue being India's foremost defence supplier.


    India Friday announced that it will buy the S-400 Triumf air defence systems from Russia, worth over $5 billion, and collaborate in making four state of art frigates besides setting up a joint production facility for making Kamov helicopters.



    The deals were announced following talks held between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit being held here.

    The development comes as Russia hopes to stave off tough competition from the Americans and the Europeans to continue being India’s foremost defence supplier. The most strategically important decision is the Inter Governmental Agreement for the purchase of S-400 ‘Triumf’ long-range air defence missile system which has the capability to destroy incoming hostile aircraft, missiles and even drones at ranges of up to 400 km.

    India and Russia have been in talks for over a year for the purchase of at least five systems of S-400 that will be a game changer in the region. It is capable of firing three types of missiles, creating a layered defence, and simultaneously engaging 36 targets. If India signs the deal, it would be the second customer of the prized missile system after China which had struck a USD 3 billion contract last year.
