Russia to showcase S-400, Tor missile systems at India’s arms exhibition

Russia’s Almaz-Antey Group will showcase S-400, Tor and Buk air defense missile systems at India’s Defexpo-2018 arms exhibition on April 11-14, the company’s press office reported on Monday.

Defense products in the form of mockups and models enjoying demand in countries of the Asia-Pacific Region will be on display: ground-based and seaborne air defense missile systems, including the S-400 Triumf, the S-300VM Antey-2500, the Tor-M2E, the Tor-M2K, the Tor-M2KM, the Buk-M2E, the Osa-AKM1, Rif-M, Shtil-1 and the Tunguska-M1 surface-to-air missile/gun complex, the press office said.

“Our participation in this event is aimed at boosting the image of the company as a reliable supplier of exclusive defense products, and also at expanding the group of potential customers among countries of the south-eastern region,” Almaz-Antey Deputy CEO for Foreign Economic Operations Vyacheslav Dzirkaln was quoted by the press office as saying.

During the arms exhibition, Almaz-Antey officials plan to hold a number of meetings and negotiations with representatives of government and business structures of India and other countries.

The S-400 Triumf is the most advanced long-range air defense missile system that went into service in Russia in 2007. It is designed to destroy aircraft, cruise and ballistic missiles, including medium-range missiles, and can also be used against ground objectives.

The S-400 can engage targets at a distance of 400 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.

Russian Aerospace Force Commander-in-Chief Viktor Gumyonny said in April last year that the troops started to receive missiles for S-400 systems capable of destroying targets in outer space.

The Tor-M2 air defense missile system is an effective means to hit aircraft, helicopters, aerodynamic unmanned aerial vehicles, missiles and also other precision weapons flying at medium, low and extremely low altitudes in an adverse air and jamming environment.

The Tor-M2 is characterized by its high maneuverability, mobility, quick response, automation of combat operations and the efficiency of engaging a broad range of targets.

  1. The Buk-M3 is the latest of the family of Buk medium-range surface-to-air missile systems.
