IGLA-S system from Russia

Russia is aiming to seal a multi-billion-dollar missile deal of IGLA-S system, a Very Short-Range Air Defence Missile System (VSHORADS), for 800 launchers and over 5000 missiles before Prime Minister’s visit to Moscow in May 2020. These missiles are meant to counter low-flying aircraft as the last line of defence against flying objects in a multi-layered air defence system.

The other issues such as AK 203 have been held up due to cost factor and 200 Kamov 226T is also getting delayed due to cost and the indigenous contents. The IGLA-S system would be yet another major deal between the two countries after the one for S400, frigates and lease of a second nuclear submarine amid the threat of US sanctions.
