Eurasian Times writes about India's deployment of Akash air defense systems near the border with China


India has recently deployed Akash air defense systems in the Ladakh region along the Sino-Indian border. Akash is a modern short-range air defense system with a range of up to 30 kilometers.

The Eurasian Times writes about the strengthening of Indian air defense in the areas bordering China.

The deployment of Akash systems, according to Indian government sources, is caused by the intensification of the Chinese fighter aviation and helicopters along the actual border between India and China.

The Indian Akash rocket can simultaneously pursue and attack multiple targets. It is capable of carrying a warhead weighing 60 kilograms and hitting targets at a distance of up to 30 kilometers.

The Indian Air Force is also armed with Spyder. This is an Israeli quick reaction rocket designed to neutralize enemy air targets at a distance of 15 km and at altitudes of 20 to 9 meters.

The Indian Air Force uses Spyder along with a domestic ground-to-air missile to create a dual defensive echelon to guard strategically important sites in the country.

But with regard to the deployment of Israeli missiles along the Indian-Chinese border, there is no evidence of this information from official New Delhi.

    If I’m not mistaken, the Akash air defense system is our modernized air defense system "Cube" ("Square")

      Not. This is not Our Cube. This is the Israeli system. By the way, too, danced for 6 years

        For comparison, the speed of the Alkasha rocket is 1000 m / s. The shell is 1200, and he is close, and the drunk is average

    Hmm ... China and India silently gather their fists on the disputed territory, so that later in the negotiations to flex their muscles .. The Indians have a little difficult situation, because they will confront two countries .. Even if Pakistan does not get into a fight, but will do everything possible to make things easier for China .. Too many are now rubbing their hands and waiting for the "X" day .. Because the war between these two countries opens the way for arms sellers .. Especially for India

      India alone outperforms the purchase of weapons in total imports of the 4 countries following it.
      In the arms market of India, France is confidently catching up with Russia, the United States and Israel are fighting for 3-4 place. Gourmet piece.

      Both sides bring troops and weapons to the border. The Chinese boasted of their long-range MLRS, they say almost up to 300 km. And India does not seem to have such a range. What if China doesn’t like it and they hit?

      Even one-on-one with narrow-film Indians will not be easy, but on two fronts it’s completely sad

          Well, we are still considering an external conflict. Although Kashmir - you’ll understand where the hell is where Kashmir ends and Pakistan begins.

    I think Mirage 2000 is more dangerous for China, there’s not a copy of the avionics

    God forbid, but if a conflict arises, then, despite all the shortcomings and sadism of the Indians, my sympathies will be on the side of the Indians, since they are weaker militarily, and unlike the Chinese, they do not eat everything that moves (to put it , not prone to cannibalism), do not have explicit goals for gaining dominance over other peoples, etc.

    Apparently they want to thin out their own population. They and 500 million in minus will not be critical. To each. The left with food is easier. Solid profit.
