Induction of first regiment of S-400 system to be completed next month

Officials from the Indian Air Force said next month is likely to be the deadline for completing the deployment of the S-400 missile system on an airbase in Punjab. They said that the deployment of the missile system has started and it will take at least six more weeks to complete. 

The first regiment of the S-400 missile system is being inducted in a manner that it can cover parts of the Indo-China border in the northern frontier as well as the Indo-Pak border areas.  

“The transportation of various critical components of the missile systems as well as its peripheral equipment to the site of the deployment is going on,” said an official. 

India will get five units of the Russian-made S-400 air defence missile systems. In October 2018, India had signed a USD 5 billion deal with Russia to purchase 5 units of S-400, in spite of a warning from the previous Trump administration.
