    Excellent news. A new air defence SAM after long time. But a lot of systems are coming with in next few years. SPYDER coming next year as well. After than MR-SAM as well as Iron Dome and David's Sling. DRDO also developing sophisticated short range SAM called SR-SAM.

    But we still need something similar to S-400.

    Great move! But shouldn't SAMs/ABMs be kept around vital cities like Delhi, Amritsar, Srinagar, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad etc? Especially Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi since they are critically important for country's power.

    Yeah, think about a SAM than can destroy aircrafts 400 km away!!!! :woot::) Even they are placed 100 km inside border than also can go 300 km deep into enemy territory. Giving IAF an huge advantage. We are spending billions in many deal, why can't we buy S-400 worth of $ 3 billions? That will cover almost all the strategic areas.

    Has Russia offered S400 to us? somewhere I read that Russia is unwilling to offer the system to any outside country...

    yes, i would love to see S 400 with us...more appropriate for the chinese borders...as it is a long border.

    we have so far only focussed on short range quick reaction sams only. BTW any update on Astra ??

    I dont think S-400 is on offer, even S-300 was offered to us but we rejected. By the way, when the field trials happened for S-300 it was innefective in our hot places. I dont know why we didnt buy S-300, may be its not necessary for us considering our immediate threat will be in 100 kms. May be thats why we invested more on AWACS which can detect targets 300 Kms away.
