In 2003, three more complexes worth 100 million were ordered, in 2004, two more complexes and an additional lot of missiles for 58 million. , and in 2007, three more complexes.

However, the current approved purchase represents the finalization of the epic that has been stretching for almost 12 for the purchase of additional Barak 1 systems and missiles. In 2006, the government of India decided to purchase seven more Barak 1 and 2000 missiles, some of which were intended to equip the 11356 frigates of the second Troika ordered in Russia, bmpd blog

    A bomb priced at $ 820 apiece ... an anti-aircraft missile of $ 000 .... Information for consideration ... Before that I thought that missiles were more expensive than bombs ...

        they write that the laser beam is correctable. Strange somehow I was thinking something KAB are adjusted according to GLONAS. American SDB corrected by GPS, I remember, there was something in the wreck of 50 thousand dollars. Well, not at all so powerful, but still. Something is wrong with this price.

      A bomb without a guidance system is a bucket with RDX, it is rather the price of a complex

        There from the head the price of a laser or television
        Homing televisions with a correlation algorithm for processing information about the target are able to "remember" the location of the target and adjust the flight of the bomb before meeting the target, which ensures the implementation of the "dropped-forgot" principle.

    Here Indians, for example, do not take a steam bath - they can’t make this or that weapon or ammunition yet, they just buy it. And our defenders have money in their pocket!

      They do not just buy, they often also require part of the production at home and / or part of the technology.

    This is a serious thing. In Syria, experience has shown. And all the jokes aside.
    Another thing is how and where to apply, or from which media, otherwise they will drop the krivoruky by chance, blaming Russia.

    One KAB-1500L costs more than $ 820 thousand? Honestly, I'm in shock.

    is this a peak for the dragon sons?

    The sons of the dragon are smarter than the sons of Rama: they acquire (when possible) the starting batch, disassemble, copy and make doubles. But not always, sometimes blind copying does not give a positive result. it’s not enough to measure with a barbell, technology is also needed ..... But the sons of Rama somehow do not work with the development of something ..... See dragon genes are more powerful than Ramins ..... Yes, and copying too did not master ....
