NEW DELHI: Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Russia, Defence Ministry's top acquisition council today cleared the purchase of an estimated Rs 40,000 crore Russian S-400 Triumf air defence missile systems, besides giving the go-ahead to other projects worth over Rs 25,000 crore.

Defence Acquisition Council (DAC), chaired by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, has decided to buy 5 units of the S-400 Triumf air defence missile system fter China if the deal goes through.

It is expected that the deal would be a government-to- government one and could see a forward movement during Modi's visit to Russia next week.

The S400 Triumf is designed to knock down flying targets including those equipped with stealth technologies, at a distance of about 400 kms.

It is also capable of taking out ballistic missiles and hypersonic targets.

Compared with its predecessor, the S-300, the new S-400 has a 2.5 times faster firing rate. This is the most modern, air defence system in the Russian arsenal.

The DAC also gave the Acceptance of Necessity to Army's proposal for the purchase of six regiments of the Pinaka rocket system under the 'Make in India' category for Rs 14,600 crore.

Each regiment of the Pinaka comes with 18 launchers and every launcher has the capability of firing 12 rockets at the same time.

Tata Power SED, Larsen & Toubro and state-run BEML will be providing the system.

The DAC also directed the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to continue with its process of making improved Pinaka system as it has proved to be a potent and proud indigenous product.

Army's demand for 571 light bullet-proof vehicles to be to be used in counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism operations was also cleared at a cost of Rs 310 crore. The army currently uses Mahindra jeeps.

The DAC also gave the go-ahead for the purchase of 120 trawls to be used on Russia-origin T-72 and T-90 tanks under "Buy Global" category for Rs 450 crore.

DRDO has been tasked to field four sets of indigenous trawls by June 2017, the sources said.
The DAC has also fine-tuned an already cleared proposal to built a five fleet support ships for Rs 9,000 crore. It was cleared in July last year. The DAC today nominated HSL shipyard to build the ships.

The DAC also gave the go-ahead for digitisation of 24 Pechora Air Defence system for Rs 1,200 crore.

The acquisition council also cleared a Rs 425-crore electronic warfare system, for the Indian Army to be deployed in the mountain region. This would be developed by the DRDO and produced by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL).

The DAC, set up in 2001 as part of the post-Kargil reforms in defence sector, approves the long-term integrated perspective plan for the forces, accords acceptance of necessity (AON) to begin acquisition proposals, and has to grant its approval to all major deals through all their important phases.

It also has the power to approve any deviations in an acquisition, and recommends all big purchases for approval of the Cabinet committee on security.

1.2 Billion+ per system ! ! how many batteries in 1 system ?
This is the detail i got

Russian structure
1 regiment = 4 battalions
1 battalion == 1 command post
1 Battalion = 16 launchers 64 missile ready to fire and equal number in reloads
4 Battalions = 64 launchers 256 missiles ready to fire and equal number in reloads - 512 missiles and 4 command post


Each S400 battalion has 1 Pantsir-S battalion
1 Pantsir-S battalion = 6 launchers
Each Pantsir-S launcher has 12 missiles RTF and 12 for reload
1 Pantsir Battalion = 72 RTF+ 72 Reloads = 144
1 regiment = 4 S400 Battalion = 4 Pantsir Battalion = 4*144=576 missiles

So 1 full S400 regiment has 512 + 576 = 1088 Missiles in total comprising of 544 RTF and 544 reloads

Based on Indian News of 5 Systems (read regiments)
So 5 full Regiments = 5440 missiles (RTF+ Reloads)
Spare missiles = 560 missiles

curtsey @ parikrama

What's the composition of Bangladesh air force..front line fighters?..just curious.
you mean purchase plan ?
Mig35 is possible candidate and for Maritime Su30mk2
7 squadrons (112 units) will be inducted within 10 years
Your biggest 'aerial' threat are thunderstorms. Best of luck pointing the S-400 at that :P
thunderstorm under control, but i think your biggest aerial threat is own fighter aircraft when they crashes frequently :P

BD AF should be strengthened.. That's a good way to move forward. Russian Su35 or 30mk2 is a way forward. With Malaysia also doing quite well with their 30s training and MRO activities in India, BD should look forward to make use of the opportunity. I also feel BD should strengthen its navy with joint ops with IN and buy some Russian stuff..
