US approves sale of IADWS anti-aircraft missile system to India

NASAMS anti-aircraft missile launchers


Agency for Military Cooperation (Defense Security Cooperation Agency - DSCA) The US Department of Defense has sent Congress a notice on the possible sale of India ground integrated anti-aircraft missile system Integrated Air Defense Weapon System (IADWS), writes the blog bmpd.

It is reported that the possible delivery will pass through the American program of intergovernmental foreign military sales Foreign Military Sales (FMS). The deal has already been approved by the US State Department, the cost of the agreement is 1,87 billion dollars.

The IADWS air defense system is a combination of NASAMS air defense systems jointly manufactured by Raytheon Corporation and the Norwegian Kongsberg group, with additional equipment for anti-aircraft missiles from the Stinger MANPADS, which should be used with dual mount launchers Dual Mount Stinger (DMS).

In total, according to the notification, five AN / MPQ-64F1 Sentinel radars, 118 used as Raytheon AIM-120C-7 / C-8 AMRAAM active air-to-air radars with active self-guidance, should be included in the delivery, and 134 Raytheon FIM-92L Stinger anti-aircraft guided missiles, as well as an unnamed number of launchers, command posts and other ground-based air defense systems. Most likely, we are talking about the supply of five battery packs SAM.

The new system will be used in India primarily for the air defense of New Delhi and other major cities in India. The firing range of the system in the modern configuration of NASAMS 2 is 20-25 km, and the reach in height is up to 14-15 km.

It is assumed that after India approved the purchase of IADWS air defense systems (NASAMS), New Delhi will finally abandon plans for large purchases of the Israeli SPYDER air defense system, six of which are already in service with the Indian army.

        I goof in this zoo. The Indians continue to make "vinaigrette" - another air defense system and not at all cheap. What can I cover with 5 batteries, in general I am silent about technology transfer. The problems of the Indians - the sheriff does not care.

        The point is to sell obsolete air defense to Indians, and send the money received to
        1. The development of its air defense
        2. US government debt reduction

          I repeat. Now specifically, rave. Did the US plan to work against India on the side of China or Pakistan? Cold water from the refrigerator, urgently.
          What are the air defense deposits? Sell ​​with bookmarks, but everyone does. EU, China, USA, Israel, we are sinners. There is no crime until an adversary is identified for India. If this is not the United States, Israel, NATO, then India has fallen in all directions, from Amer’s systems and you will be happy, definitely. (But I doubt it) request

        Destabilization in the region. They like to fish in troubled waters. And what is a temporary plus - they spit. Was the point with Iraq? Pumped up oil ... Well, it's temporary. And now Iraq is under Iranian influence, and this is already irreversible. Zadornov was right.
        If they find a SIMULTANEOUS interest in destabilizing Delhi, they will shut it down. A simple example - in order to lure Pakistan to its side - a completely possible thing - long-standing ties, back from the Afghan war, to remove the ally of China, thereby destroying the draft Belt and Path ...

      Why only "like Hussein"? They showed themselves in full beauty in Saudi Arabia. The most to protect N.Delhi

    US approves sale of IADWS anti-aircraft missile system to India

    Fuck with them, the main thing is that India will give the go-ahead. The main problem of India is that she cannot decide what she wants. From here opponents will arise. Well, and what means will be required.
    Protecting New Delhi from China or Pakistan is still a different task.

      India does not want a part of Kashmir, but all of Kashmir.
      And it is partly under Pakistan, partly under China, so India has chosen a pro-Western vector to spite its enemies. We are trying to keep an equal relationship with everyone. Although it happens that it is unlikely that there will be those who want to help India.

        Quiet, Quiet. All Kashmir is one thing tomorrow or in principle. Then you need a sequence and a plan. Today is Pakistan, in 100 years China. How else? Otherwise, India will join Kashmir (possibly for money) request

    The shell-SM will be better. The range of destruction is 40 km. At an altitude of about 15-20 km.
    Poor India. Examples of Iraq and Saudi Arabia are not taught to see anything. It would be better if they bought Buki.

    A system, like a system, is not better than other similar ones ... if they are satisfied, they can take it.
    And there, further, it can happen as usual ....

    It is unlikely that India will abandon the Spiders. The Israeli air defense system is mobile, partially localized by Indian industry, and its use has been tested in the army. Most likely, the American complexes will be put on guard of stationary objects, and the Israeli will be withdrawn to the troops.

    I wonder why they did not buy the TOP. There is a stationary version (on a trailer), there is a wheeled chassis from the MZKT, and you can put on their four-axle TATA car. If they don’t need a caterpillar complex .... Apparently their TOP didn’t work with something ...

        Come on. They have been buying Israeli speeders for a long time. What sanctions at that time ?? They didn’t even choose it then .... Although they often buy air defense from Israel. Most of their ships have a Barak-8 system. (Even those that were built in the Russian Federation). And they buy AWACS aircraft carrier Il, and Israeli radar and electronics put on them ...

          Why is Spider better than Thor? Spider has only 4 missiles versus 16 for Thor, Spider’s range is 20 km, Thor’s 15-16 km depending on the modification. The height of the lesion is comparable.
          The Barak-8 medium-range air defense system, its analogue S-350, we recently went into service and we missed the time to offer it to India.

        If only competition was competition, and not that outrage, as with the S-400.

      Spyder - short and medium range air defense / missile defense. Low flying small targets.

          This is just an example of normal competition between approximately equal
          systems.

    By the way, the use of aviation guided missiles AMRAAM and missiles of portable systems Stinger, reduces the cost of operation.
    And why did not the Indians "Patsir-S" arrange?
    It seems that the Yankees want to oust the Russian Federation from a short-range air defense niche. Bye in India.

    Why not “Tor” and not “Carapace”!? Yes, it’s simple: it’s newer and more technologically advanced and safer-active radar guidance- “SHOT AND FORGOTTEN”. And AFAR locators probably.

      Afar probably.
      or
      this is a newer more technologically advanced and safer-active radar guidance- "SHOT AND FORGOTTEN."
      You have already decided. Looks like an advertising slogan. Usually shot, forgot about offensive weapons.
