IAF to get two self-protection suites from US

India has inked a USD 190 Million (Rs 1300 Crores) deal with the US under FMS for two self-protection suites (SPS), which will be retrofitted on the two custom-built Boeing-777 aircraft earlier acquired for Indian Air Force (IAF) for VVIP travel. The two wide-bodied B-777s, with their fully-integrated advanced missile approach warning sensors, defensive electronic warfare systems, infra-red counter-measures, digital radio frequency jammers and other such contraptions under the overall SPS. The aircraft were slated for delivery in June 2020 after customization at the Boeing facility in Dallas. But the SPS retrofitting in them will obviously take much more time.
