Russia will start deliveries of S-400 Triumf advanced interceptor-based Air Defense Systems by end of this year to India and most likely the first regiment will be deployed defending national airspace in the Delhi region against numerous incoming objects, including aircraft, missiles, and UAVs, and help neutralize them. Integrated with multifunction radar, autonomous detection, and targeting systems, anti-aircraft missile systems, launchers, and command and control center, the S400 system will aid India’s Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) program in providing aerial cover to the National Capital.
idrw.org has been informed that S-400 will work with India’s Two-layer Advanced Air Defence (AAD) Missile for lower altitude interception and Pradyumna which can intercept and destroy missiles at exo-atmospheric altitudes of 50–180 kilometers that were quietly deployed after successful completion of the developmental trials of both the missiles.
Indian S-400 system ordered mainly consists of Two 40N6E (400 km ) and 48N6 (250 km) missile interceptors that are excellent in intercepting aerial threats in long-range and working in tandem with India’s BMD it will be able to secure airspace as per the severity of the threat classification. Moscow and Beijing are the other two national capital regions where S400 has been deployed to provide aerial cover to their respected National Capital.
IAF that will be in command of the S400 regiments has plans to deploy other regiments both in the East and West of its border to provide aerial cover to military installations and other sensitive facilities in regions close to border regions. While exact locations of such deployment and number of missile launchers deployed will remain classified but it is more or less confirmed that the National capital will have S400 cover.
