India is contemplating a deal that would see it build a domestic version of Russia’s S-400 Triumf air defence system, according to an IAF veteran and top military analyst.

State-owned Russian corporation Rostec recently revealed that India and Russia are in talks over the possibility of building a production line to make the S-400, which NATO calls the SA-21 Growler, in India.

“India would need more S-400 systems and is indeed contemplating a follow-up purchase following satisfactory completion of supply of the five systems already contracted for,” said military analyst Vijainder K. Thakur.

Washington has threatened to impose economic sanctions on India should it go ahead with the deal, estimated to be worth $5.43 billion for five S-400 units.

Nevertheless, citing the “national interest,” New Delhi has made it clear that it will be going ahead with the purchase. Read More
