On 15 October 2016, during the BRICS Summit, India and Russia signed an Inter-governmental Agreement (IGA) for the supply of five S-400 regiments. S-400 missile systems are organized around the 30K6E administration system, which can coordinate eight divisions (battalions).

S-400 Anti-Aircraft Weapon:-

In view of the standoff between the Indian and Chinese armies, along the Line of Actual Control (LAC), India had requested Russia to expedite the delivery of S-400 air defence system. A team from the IAF is already in Moscow undergoing training for operating the system when it arrives.

This S-400 Anti-aircraft weapon system has the capability to detect and destroy high and low targets, and also form an impenetrable grid of missiles. This system which has four different types of missiles with ranges between 40 km, 100 km, 200-km, and 400 km can be can also be deployed in a very short time.

Why India Need S-400 Anti-Aircraft Defence System:-

India has a land conflict with Pakistan and China. India always faces war threats with china for the land dispute, For this, we need an advanced air defence system to protect our country. China and India border has mountains and hills, so there is a chance of air attack in war, that’s why we need a strong Anti-Air Defence System.

The S-400 capabilities:-

The S-400 is one of the world’s most advanced air defence systems and can take down targets at a range of over 400 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.

The S-400 is capable of destroying incoming hostile aircraft, missiles and even drones from a minimum range of 2 km to upto 400 km. It also has a tracking capability of nearly 600 km.

Each S-400 system, known as a battery, consists of long-range radar, a command post vehicle, target acquisition radar and two battalions of launchers (each battalion has eight). Each launcher has four tubes.

Each component of the system — command post, the radars, and the launchers — is mounted on multi-axle, multi-wheel Ural carriers that have the capability to move on uneven terrains. 

This capability makes the batteries difficult to detect because they can keep changing locations, besides expanding the missile engagement zone (MEZ).

Why S-400 is best Anti Air Defence System?

The S-400 can be armed with four different types of missiles with ranges of 400 km, 250 km, 120 km, and 40 km. The specialized radar can track more than 100 flying objects simultaneously while being able to engage a dozen targets in one go. The S-400 has a firing rate that is 2.5 times faster than that of the earlier generation. Incidentally, the Russians have also developed the S-500, the latest version but they’ve kept it for themselves.
