The contract for the supply of MANPADS "Igla-S" of India will be signed before the end of the year

The contract for the supply and licensed production of Igla-S man-portable air defense systems for the Indian armed forces is planned to be signed by the end of 2020. This was announced by a representative of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation.


During the Defexpo India 2020 international arms exhibition held in India, the FSWTC representative, answering journalists' questions, explained that, within the framework of the Russian army’s Indian tender for the supply of MANPADS, the technical parameters of the agreement are currently being negotiated, and a contract for the supply of MANPADS and its Licensed production at Indian enterprises is planned before the end of the year.

Active negotiations are underway on the supply of Igla-S man-portable air defense systems and the organization of their licensed production in India. We expect that in the near future the parties will agree on all technical parameters, and we expect to sign the relevant contracts before the end of this year

- he said.

Recall that at the end of 2018, Russia won the Indian tender for the supply of portable anti-aircraft missile systems to the Indian armed forces. In the final of the competition, the Russian Igla-S MANPADS outflanked the French Mistral complex and the Swedish RBS 70 NG. The cost of the agreement, according to some foreign media, will be about $ 1,5 billion.

In total, India plans to purchase 5 missiles, as well as launchers and other related equipment. At the same time, 175 thousand 2 missiles should be delivered in assembled condition, 315 thousand 1 - in semi-assembled condition, 260 thousand - in disassembled condition and another 1 missiles will be produced at Indian enterprises.

    India has not revised the results of this tender? Strange, very strange, because more and more their leadership shows that the best weapon is the "weapon of democracy"

      Well, it’s not "evening" yet. Maybe the other day we will hear news from India that they are again unhappy with something. Although I doubt it, this time everything seems to suit them.

      You will not believe, but Russia is a country of victorious capitalism and democracy.

          Well, I commented on the first comment on this article. And who are you? From the Order of the Minus One?

            No, from the "orderlies in." They are needed when the sixth chambers are open. And especially against those who in other articles reproach for the flood, while in another article he maliciously floods. The topic of the article is for MANPADS, and not for the state system of the Russian Federation. Drink a sedative.

      However, a production license should be kept. If "milk cows" leave, then it is possible to remain without milk in the future. what

        Needle With the development of the 2000s, thousands have already been delivered to Venezuela and other states. It is strange that the Indians bought it, and not the modern "willow"

    and another 600 missiles will be produced at Indian plants.

    And this, the most ... And they can? To me, the eternal troeshnik, the Indians were seconded to the techie, and I solved physics problems for them.

    I am glad that Needle defeated strong competitors. And this despite the fact that Willow enters the troops! Which is superior to the Igloo

      and what's so strange? Igla-S is one of the best MANPADS, Hindus know what they are taking. I did not deal with the Swedish MANPADS, but the stingers in our army were ... and our commanders about the Needles said that they were even better and more convenient than the Stinger.

      Most likely India wanted to produce on its territory, but we did not go for it. so instead of willow they got a needle

    By the end of the year, Hindus will refuse 33 times, 33 times they will say that they have found a more advanced technique, they will sing and dance 33 times and only then, when the first advance payment comes, something concrete can be done. Otherwise halva-halva-halva.

      GOS Willow doesn't tell you anything? Willow goes into service with Russia. Needle-C is not inferior to Stinger!

    Does anyone have to do this? I will not. Pay. And there’s nobody else. You can hire a couple of sheep muskers. Then do not be offended by the forfeits.

    At the same time, 2 thousand 315 missiles should be delivered in assembled condition, 1 thousand 260 - in half-assembled condition, 1 thousand - in disassembled condition and another 600 missiles will be produced at Indian enterprises.

    Interesting proportions ...
    Actually, for landing Pakistani turntables in the mountains, more is not required .... Well, a little in the fleet.
