Original title: Russia and India signed the S400 ground to air missile arms sales agreement: 5 billion 400 million US dollars to sell 5 sets
Overseas Network, Oct. 5, according to foreign media reports, on the 5th local time, India and Russia signed an S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile system agreement worth $5.4 billion (about 37.1 billion yuan) at the annual bilateral meeting held in New Delhi.
Russian satellite news agency quoted Indian media reports that five advanced S-400 "triumphal" surface-to-air missile systems will be delivered in October 2020. Although the United States is worried about India's plans to buy S-400 air defense systems and other weapons from Russia and does not rule out sanctions against India, Russia and India have signed the agreement.
In mid-July, India's defense minister said talks between India and Russia on the S-400 delivery were in the final stages. On Sept. 27, Indian media quoted government sources as saying that before Russian President Vladimir Putin visited India in early October, the Cabinet Security Committee, chaired by Indian Prime Minister Modi, approved the major acquisition.
The S-400 Triumphant Surface-to-Air Missile System is Russia's latest long-range air defense missile system, capable of destroying air targets over a very long distance of 400 kilometers. It can detect, track and destroy enemy strategic bombers, stealth fighters, reconnaissance aircraft, missiles and UAVs, and can also be used to attack ground targets.
Russia and India are the largest partners in the field of military technology cooperation. Over 70% of India's armed forces and technical equipment are made up of Russian and Soviet systems. Russia sells billions of dollars of weapons and military technology and equipment to India every year. (overseas network Zhang Ni)
