According to the Internet portal warspot.ruIndia’s Soviet Air Defense Systems 2K12 "Cube" 200 will be equipped with new missiles, about which the Indian Ministry of Defense has published an international request for proposals. According to its content, the armed forces of the country are counting on missiles capable of hitting targets at a distance from 4 to 25 km with 80% probability of destroying an object from the first launch. The base missiles with which the Cube was armed could hit targets from 6 to 22 km with a probability of 70%.

India plans to buy new missiles for the Kub air defense system


By 2017, the Indian Army was armed with 180K2E Kvadrat 12 complexes (export version Cuba). In 2015, the Indian Research and Development Organization (Defense Research and Development Organization) developed the Akash SAM air defense system to replace the “Cubes”, but the pace of mass production of the new missile system does not allow the Soviet Union to completely replace the Soviet weapon.

2K12 “Cube” is a Soviet anti-aircraft missile system of military air defense developed in 1965 in the OKB-15 GKAT (a branch of the Scientific Research Institute-17, now the Research Institute of Instrument Engineering named after V. Tikhomirov). During mass production, which was carried out in the period from 1967 to 1983 year, more than 600 complexes were released in nine versions. According to the 2016 year, air defense systems "Kub" are in service with two dozen armies, mostly African and Asian countries.

      They are difficult buyers - they do not prepare specialists properly, “break” the equipment and then make claims.

        Yeah. And the "fundamental" changes required for new missiles are also very impressive laughing

          Offers will not be long in coming. The Hindus pay - and there, even though Polovtsian dances in the meadow arrange.

    This is of course insanely interesting. But how to explain that Vietnam purchased Akash air defense systems from India. similar "cube" only worse fool

      Well, in fact, issuing such requirements for the preparation of missiles for the Cubes, India itself signs the insufficient qualities of the Akasha. It’s especially interesting that there is an attempt to replace what was "fucked up" in the USSR in 1965, only 52 years ago. The Tauchno-Technical Revolution on the March 21st Century, however!

    In Belarus, we are proposing modernization of the Cube air defense missile system with the possibility of using missiles from the Buk air defense system, India has a marine version of the beech (hurricane air defense, export name calm), so why not buy more beech missiles from Russia and don’t sing along the path of unification missile missile system?
    PSI Indians in the procurement of weapons abroad is very complicated.

    It’s strange to be honest ... We are already releasing M-3 Bukahs and the Indians needed 70 rockets from the last century

      Here is just how everything is miscalculating. 180 complexes replaced by Buk 3, spills out into a huge penny. Easier to upgrade. I think there will be many proposals for the tender. Russia, Belarus, Israel, China will present their options ..

    At my factory near our museum stood "Cube" and "Circle". Directly opposite the window of my office. Always painted perfectly, well-groomed. And tractors and missiles. Eh, youth ... recourse

    Or am I reading Russian incorrectly or a worthless mathematician.
    In the presence of 180 complexes, 200 missiles will be purchased. This is one rocket per complex. A major upgrade.
