India Deploys Its First S-400 Air Defence Missile System In Punjab Sector


S-400 Air Defence Missile System: The first consignment of the most powerful air defence system S 400 made in Russia has reached India. The Indian Army has deployed it in the Punjab sector. From here, it can deal with threats from both Pakistan and China. In October 2018, Russia and India signed a deal regarding the supply of S-400.

The price of this deal is around Rs 39000 crores. Government sources told India Today that parts of the Russian missile system started arriving in India earlier this month, and more units would start coming in the next few weeks. India will get its five teams from Russia.

S-400 Air Defence Missile System

The S-400, considered the world’s most advanced air defence system, will make India’s power impenetrable in the air. This Russian air defence missile system can be easily transported via road from one place to another. This missile system can be ready for operation within 5 to 10 minutes after receiving instructions.


The S-400 missile system also has surveillance radar, due to which it forms a security cordon in its deployment area. It detects missiles and aircraft to enemies through surveillance radar and sends alerts. Then as soon as the instructions are received, it retaliates in the sky and destroys the enemies’ missiles in the air.

Capable of hitting F35 aircraft

The US Air Force’s F35 is considered the world’s best stealth jet, whose serial production is currently underway. The F35 and S400 have not been encountered yet. But the S400 can target six F35s simultaneously. Many experts agree that the S400 can drop the f35.

Better than America’s THAAD system

Traditional techniques of air defence could only target fighter jets. But the S400 can detect 100 targets at a time and shoot down enemy ballistic missiles and drones up to a height of 30 km in a range of 400 km. That is why many defence experts consider it the best air defence system globally, even in America. It has even been said that the S400 missile defence system made in America – Terminal High Altitude Area Defense is something much more than THAAD. Technically, a missile defence system is an advanced weapon from an air defence system.


It has been deployed in the fighting areas. For example, Syria, where this system covers Russian military bases. This system can also be used in the security of high profile places. Russia has deployed the S400 to defend its capital Moscow. And because of all these features, India has bought it.
