The said portal frankly reports that New Delhi is going to cover from the Chinese and Pakistani missiles. Sources of the publication report that India has its own air defense systems based on the Akash complex. However, in the armed forces of India they say that in modern conditions it has already ceased to arrange the possibility of this air defense system, which is capable of destroying targets at a distance of up to 25 km.
Indian Defense News reports that the Indian authorities are looking forward to the negotiations with the Russian Federation on the acquisition of the C-400 anti-aircraft missile system, which is called the "lethal air defense system-PRO."
