India-Russia S-400 Missile Deal

The India-Russia S-400 missile deal, valued at $5.5 billion, involves India purchasing five units of the advanced S-400 Triumf surface-to-air missile systems, aiming to strengthen its air defense, particularly against threats from China. Signed in October 2018, three units have been delivered as of April 2024, with the remaining two expected by 2025. Deployed along critical borders with China and Pakistan, these systems significantly boost India’s defense capabilities. Despite potential sanctions threats under the CAATSA from the US, India continues with its purchase while also developing indigenous defense technologies, including the long-range air defense system, Project Kusha, led by DRDO.
