India’s acquisition of the S-400 long-range air defense missile system from Russia has been hit by a further delay. While three squadrons have already been delivered, the remaining two squadrons won’t arrive until August 2026, according to information conveyed by Russia to India.

This delay is attributed to the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine. The original agreement stipulated delivery of all five squadrons by 2024. However, Russia’s focus on its own military needs in the conflict has necessitated a revised schedule.

The S-400 system boasts a significant range of 400 kilometers and is highly effective against fighter jets and cruise missiles. It will undoubtedly bolster India’s air defense capabilities upon completion of delivery.
