In a recent interview with ABP News, Ex-Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria stated that after procuring 5 regiments of S-400 Air Defense System from Russia, the Indian Air Force (IAF) will procure 5 regiments of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) developed Extended Range Air Defense System (ERADS) with two interceptor missile systems.
ERADS will have an ERSAM (Extended Range Surface to Air Missile) Interceptor missile with a range of 150km for fighter-sized targets and an XRSAM (eXtra Long Range Surface to Air Missile) Interceptor missile with a range of 250km for fighter-sized targets and 350-400km for Force Multiplier size targets like AWACS/FRA.
ERADS is often referred to as the Indian S-400 Air Defence system due to its ability to engage and neutralize aerial targets at long range. It has been in development for several years and will use technology developed for MR-SAM and AD-1 Anti-Ballistic Interceptor missiles.
