1st Batch of S-400 Missiles To India Will Be Delivered by 2020: Russia

The deliveries of S-400 air defence systems to India will take place by 2020 according to Dmitry Shugaev, head of Russia’s Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.

The contract for the delivery of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems to India was signed during Vladimir Putin’s visit to India earlier this month. On the eve of that visit Putin’s aide, Yuri Ushakov told reporters that under the contract India will receive five regimental sets of Russian S-400 Triumf missile systems.

Russia’s S-400 Triumf is the state of art long-range antiaircraft missile system that went into service in 2007. It is developed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and surface targets. The system can hit aerodynamic targets at a range of up to 400 kilometers and tactical ballistic targets flying at a speed of 4.8 km/s at a distance of up to 60 kilometers.
