There will be more missile weapons owners in the world: Indian government allows export of Akash missiles

45

More than a dozen countries in Africa and Southeast Asia are interested in purchasing Akash anti-aircraft missile systems produced by the Indian defense industry. And since yesterday the Indian government authorized the export of these air defense systems, there will be more missile weapons owners in the world.


The Indian newspaper The Print reports.

The decision was made at a meeting of the Cabinet's Security Committee, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

As reported by the ANI news agency, the Indian government plans to increase arms exports to $ 5 billion. In addition, cooperation in the defense industry will help strengthen India's friendly relations with foreign countries.

Vietnam, the Philippines, the United Arab Emirates and a number of other states have shown their interest in Indian air defense systems. It is known that the export version of the anti-aircraft missile system will differ from the version currently deployed in the Indian armed forces.


The Akash air defense system is considered a short-range air defense system, as it is capable of hitting targets with surface-to-air missiles at a distance of up to 25 kilometers. It appeared in service with the Indian Air Force in 2014, and a year later it was delivered to other branches of the Indian army.

      For some reason, I immediately thought about the Soviet origin of this air defense system - I don't think that the Indians are able to produce anything on their own, except for tea and dancing.

They destroyed the Harappan civilization, which had water supply and sewerage systems 6000 years ago. Half turned to Iran. And then something went wrong ... now there is no sewage system ... laughing

        India became an English colony after the Seven Years' War, which lasted from 1756 to 1763.

              Hundreds of peoples live in India. From fair skinned
              to the real Papuans from Polynesia. But all peoples (from local
              of "intellectual" circles) understand English.
              This unites the country. The British built a railway network
              through the jungle, modern ports on all sides. All this
              the Indians have saved.
              And they were ready to defend together with the British from the Japanese who invaded
              to India during World War II. In a multi-day hand-to-hand battle with
              great losses English
              and Indian soldiers (Indians were the majority) managed to defeat and
              throw back the Japanese army.

                May the Indians forgive me. About 20 years ago I had business contacts with them. It seems I understand that cultured, clean people. They are quite living according to European hygiene standards. But the palms ... As if they hadn't been washed for a week. I understand with my head that they have such a color - with their souls ... It was more pleasant to handle the blacks from Nigeria - at least everything is clear with them. Black people. And these - as if unwashed.
