According to a report by Zee Business, India’s defense prowess receives a major boost as Armenia inks a deal to acquire the Akash Air Defence System and 15 AAD Systems from Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL). This crucial government-to-government agreement, estimated to be valued between Rs 5,000 crore and Rs 6,000 crore, marks a significant development in India’s defense exports and strategic partnership with Armenia.
The Akash Air Defence System is a medium-range surface-to-air missile system designed and developed by India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). It is capable of engaging aerial targets at a range of up to 25 kilometers and an altitude of 18 kilometers. The system can track and destroy multiple targets simultaneously, making it a formidable shield against aerial threats.
For Armenia, located in a geopolitically complex region, bolstering its air defense capabilities is a top priority. The acquisition of the Akash system will significantly enhance Armenia’s ability to defend against aerial attacks, providing much-needed security and deterrence.
The delivery and deployment of the Akash Air Defence System and AAD Systems in Armenia is expected to take place over the next 4-5 years. This extended timeframe presents an opportunity for knowledge sharing and technology transfer between India and Armenia, fostering closer cooperation in the defense sector.
