India is poised to embark on a new chapter in its defence exports with the imminent delivery of its Akash surface-to-air missile (SAM) system to Armenia. This marks a significant milestone, as Armenia becomes the first export customer for the indigenously developed Akash system.

Reports suggest deliveries could commence as early as next year, potentially setting the stage for a robust defence partnership between India and Armenia. However, the groundwork for this collaboration is expected to begin sooner, with training for Armenian personnel on operating the Akash system and its radar likely to commence later this year.

While specific details remain undisclosed, speculations point towards Armenia acquiring the Akash-1S, a more advanced iteration of the Akash system. This upgraded version boasts a new, indigenously developed seeker, enhancing its target detection and interception capabilities.

The exact number of Akash units ordered by Armenia remains under wraps. However, it’s understood that the system, originally designed to neutralize enemy aircraft and missiles at ranges of 18 to 30 kilometres, will significantly bolster Armenia’s air defence capabilities.

This export deal signifies India’s growing prowess in developing and exporting advanced defence technology. For Armenia, the Akash system provides a vital layer of protection against aerial threats, potentially contributing to regional stability. The training component further strengthens the partnership, fostering closer military cooperation between the two nations.
