FSMTC: India’s C-400 delivery decision depends only on the Indian side

Russia hopes that the contract for the supply of India’s C-400 anti-aircraft missile systems will be signed this year, Deputy Director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Drozhzhov told reporters on Thursday during the ArmHiTech-2018 exhibition.

FSMTC: India’s C-400 delivery decision depends only on the Indian side

There is a very good job involved in signing a contract. Today the decision is on the side of India. We are waiting for him ... I hope
- He said, answering a journalist's question whether the contract will be signed this year.

India can become the third foreign buyer of these newest systems after China and Turkey.

As reported recently by the Economic Times newspaper citing its sources, negotiations are in the final stage, and the contract can be signed as early as the first week of April during Defense Minister Nirmala Sithamaran’s visit to Moscow.

Representatives of the Indian Air Force previously stated that the purchase of C-400 is necessary "to eliminate possible threats from China and Pakistan."

      If we move at such a pace, we will soon be on arms sales first place. We are already with the United States on this indicator by a wide margin ahead of the rest. Arms sales are a great thing. This allows us to keep afloat our entire high-tech defense industry.

    Something is scattered with the latest weapons.
    Myself is not enough.
    Or so much money in the budget is not enough.
    Or an even better weapon on the way am

      Not new, but new. The newest is the S-500, which, since February, has begun to slowly assemble.

        For the West, the C-400 is the latest weapon.
        And the first prototype of the C-500 anti-aircraft missile system,
        According to the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Yuri Borisov,
        will be ready by 2020

      And what about the Armed Forces of Russia? The budget is at the limit. Deliveries to the aircraft are in line with plans. The production of export samples with greater profitability allows us to expand production, optimize it and increase output for our own aircraft if necessary. The United States also sells its latest models of military equipment for export, and does not take a steam bath.

    The Indian elephant ... is no longer the best friend of the Russian elephant ... they are increasingly looking at the West and the USA ...
    There are cases when Indian companies refused to do business with Russian because of sanctions and argued ... that they are more interesting and profitable with the USA ...

    It is interesting, however, that the truth can change opinions more than once. Whether the Indians will do this with such a technically sophisticated product that it can undermine the reputation of the S-400. They know how to do this.

    More and more countries began to realize that in addition to nuclear, the S-400 is not a prohibited weapon of deterrence.

    In any case, the Indians will begin to bargain again until they turn blue.

    By the way, if anyone remembers the story of s-300 non-deliveries to Iran, when Dmitry Anatolyevich vetoed. Then the Persians were in fact to blame: they traded sooooo long and waited as a result of the ban. But then they got Antei in return.

    Oh, and a difficult customer, India, now we will not receive a number of articles in the world media about the poor performance characteristics of the S-400 before concluding an agreement?
