Last year India’s homegrown Akash Air Defence System was featured in the Export list for the first time while indented Customers remained a mystery until now. BDL and DRDO Still Remain tightlipped about the customer and the Order Value along with the Variant that has secured orders for the Akash Air Defence System, but people familiar with the program have now confirmed that it was Armenia that placed the order for the Akash Air Defence System. The Armenian military has opted for the Army variant of the Akash system, which features an integrated truck-based configuration instead of the trailer-based variant used by the Indian Air Force.
For some time name of Sudan as a potential buyer of the Akash Air Defence System was going around but that was not substantiated officially.
The Akash missile system, developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and manufactured by Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL), has proven its effectiveness in protecting Indian airspace. With its ability to intercept aircraft at ranges of up to 25 kilometers, the Akash system offers a potent defence against aerial threats.
