This was reported by the newspaper "Times of India".

Earlier, the Safety Committee also approved the purchase of Russian controlled tank Invar shells for T-90 tanks and more than 200 air-launched BrahMos missiles totaling 80 billion rupees (more than $ 1,5 billion). Of this amount, 60 billion rupees (1,2 billion dollars) will be spent on the purchase of Brahmos missiles intended for installation on Su-30MKI fighters, which are produced here by the Russian-Indian joint venture Brahmos Aerospace. The first tests of air-launched missiles are scheduled for the end of December this year.

As for the Invar guided tank shells, 10 thousand will be supplied from Russia, after which another 15 thousand will be produced in India by Bharat Dynamics Limited under license. The first 1,5 thousand projectiles "Invar" should be taken into service by the Indian armed forces in the next few years.

        This is called - mass is the key to success, therefore, they do not buy the best in terms of characteristics - but in price / quality. It seems that the Indians do not believe that Spike and Cornet are suitable for the entire spectrum of tasks on the mentioned parameter.

          With Spike, they are doing pretty well too.

          "The Indian Ministry of Defense has decided to purchase Israeli-made Spike portable anti-tank systems," Globes reports, citing Defense News. A total of 321 launchers, 8356 missiles and 15 training units are planned to be purchased. The potential deal is estimated at $ XNUMX billion. Once the contract is signed, the Israeli company Rafael will supply missiles. "

          Last year.

              This does not mean that purchased, is also a delicate moment.
              Hindus often play this.

              But the same JiPost writes, for example, that "Raphael is expanding cooperation with Indian firms and creating a joint venture, which may indicate the expansion of sales of the Spike ATGM"
              http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Op-EdContributors/Article.aspx?id=266307

              So we will see what is the result. Spike, in particular, planned to purchase as missiles for helicopters.

                Does this follow from Spike’s experience? As I understood it, delivery began in a year, and even the signing of the contract did not receive official confirmation? Or not? Are there already shipped and accepted complexes in India?

                  Since we are talking about 340 launchers - and this is not such a large number for the Indians, perhaps we are talking about elite units - and the Indians are not uncommon. I think we will need more messages on the topic. I’m wondering who from Asian countries bought mini Spikes.

                      There are Cornets, Bassoons, Babies - all in very serious quantities.

                      Maybe so, maybe different. But it is indicated that a country that already has Spike in service has bought it - and this is most likely either Singapore or South Korea.

                        They have a new military doctrine that implies a simultaneous war against the Chinese and the Pax. The average cost of one rocket is about 100 bucks. At the same time, "spikes", according to various estimates, can be effectively used both against tanks and against other targets. Well, count up, taking these goals into account - this is little or a lot, if the same Poland, which does not have such cheerful neighbors, bought 2500 spikes.

                        This portable system is designed to destroy both armored vehicles and vehicles, as well as firing points and shelters, as well as accumulations of enemy infantry.

                        The total weight of the Mini-Spike launcher is 12 kg, including the weight of the ATGM itself in the transport and launch container - 4 kg. The missile is 70 cm long and 75 mm caliber. The maximum firing range is up to 1,5 km, the minimum is 200 meters. The guidance system is infrared type IIR with an additional fiber-optic cable, and can be used both in "fire and forget" mode and in command guidance mode. The calculation of the complex consists of two people, one of whom carries the launcher and two ATGMs, and the second - four ATGMs.

                        Mobile convenient system for modern wars.

                Stop. If I’m not mistaken in the tender for the supply of attack helicopters, Apache Longbow defeated and most likely it will be equipped with helpfires. So in the helicopter version Spike flies. Although the Indians in the army cook such porridge that you can be surprised at a lot.
