“Indeed, quite large contracts on air to air missiles were signed some time ago. They stipulate the delivery of about 1,000 missiles of various designation to India,” the federal agency said.

As EurAsian Times reported (quoting ANI), India and Russia have signed an agreement on delivering R-27 missiles for the Indian Air Force, ANI news agency reported. The R-27 Missile is a guided medium-range, air-to-air missile which can be integrated with Russian fourth-generation fighters.

R-27 Air-To-Air Missiles

The R-27 Missile is a guided medium-range, air-to-air missile which can be integrated on Russian fourth-generation fighters such as the MiG-29, MiG-31, Su-27, Su-30, Su-33, Su-34, Su-35, Su-37 and Yak-141.

The R-27 missile is intended for use on fourth generation Russian fighters such as the MiG-29.

The R-27 missile is designed to strike all types of aircraft, rotorcraft, cruise missiles and unmanned aircraft systems. It can engage airborne targets in any weather conditions during day and night.

The R-27 missile is designed to destroy air targets in adverse weather conditions at any time of day. The missile has a length of 4m, a body diameter of 0.23m and wingspan of 0.77m. The weight of the missile is 253kg. The R-27 can be launched from an altitude of 25km, up to a range of 60km. The guidance system of the missile includes semi-active radar seeker with command updates.

The R-27 missile structure includes a cylindrical body and axisymmetric, crosswise arranged surfaces in duck configuration. The modular structure allows the integration of various guidance systems and motors (two options).

All versions of the R-27 missile are equipped with the same 39kg Rod warhead initiated by radar-proximity and impact fuses. The air-to-air missile is designed with a canard aerodynamic configuration. The surfaces control pitch and yaw of the missile while ensuring the roll stabilisation. The maximum operational g-loading of the missile is 8g.

The guidance method of the missile can be converted from semi-active radar homing to infrared by substituting the seeker module. The propulsion system includes a solid-propellant rocket motor.
