S-400 Delivery To India Further Delayed By 2 Years Due To Ukraine War


India's plan to strengthen its air defense capabilities with the Russian S-400 missile system has faced a significant setback. Russia has informed India that the delivery of the remaining two squadrons of the advanced long-range system will be delayed until August 2026 - two years beyond the original 2024 deadline.

The delay is a direct consequence of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict. Russia's prioritization of its own military requirements has led to a necessary revision of the S-400 delivery schedule for India. To date, India has received three of the five squadrons covered in the original agreement.

The S-400, with its 400-kilometer range and effectiveness against a variety of aerial threats, represents a major upgrade to India's air defense capabilities. However, the delay highlights the potential impact of global conflicts on international arms agreements.
 
One erred & inconsiderate decision by God-forsaken Fuktin is causing two dimensional problem to its strategic partner India – P-1135.6 & S-400. 8 saal chahiye, 5 system ke liye. Isse to accha hai ToT kar de❗ God knows what else is going on in SSN & KNPP front.
 
Russia's mistake! Russo-Ukraine war helped India realize that self sufficiency is the key and work starts from today not tomorrow. Before that, India was only interested in fantasizing it.
 
India must realize the realities very fast and must not lose any more time depending on Russian arms.

India must fast track the manufacturing of LRSAM, and the developments of ERSAM with 160+ kms range and XRSAM with 250+ kms range to secure its border defenses.

India must shed its arms dependency habit completely.
India must accelerate its Tejas IA manufacturing, and the development of Tejas Mk2, TEDBF and AMCA fighters.
India must also accelerate Astra Mk I, II, and III BVRAAMs.

India must also act very fast to indigenize all of SU-30MKIs and Mig-29s as much as possible and as soon as possible.
No more Russian fighters except for those 12 SU-30MKIs and 21 Mig-29sattrition replacements

I have some serious doubts about the 21 MiG-29s, but we shall see..

I do too about deliveries.
Russia is falling deeply into a blackhole of no bottom.

But if Russia can finish at least half of it and ship it to Indian IAF BRD 11?, then India will put up its Israeli and French avionics and RD-33MK engines, etc and will get it ready.
 
Russia cannot help it when a war is on. Do not opt for any American hardware as it is pricey, difficult to procure thru Congressional approvals and not proven more efficient than S-400 in Ukraine war. Do not believe in American propaganda of superiority of their weapons.

well said.It was over hyped western weapon. Now US Abrams tank started bursting in Ukraine war after Bradley.There is no impact of western weapons . all are getting Burst One by one. its Only Marketing Funda to sell weapons.Hope Ukraine war will Help other nation who buy weapons under pressure Rather than their performance.
 
Putin in his Victory Speech reiterated that World is only 1 Step away from WW3.If that may be so then how can Russia assure Indian Govt/Military/IAF of delivering the last 2 S-400 Systems in 2026?? Is it not a White Lie??Why is PM cosying up to Russia inspite of White Lies??China also tells India White Lies and we are considering it as an Enemy??

That is one reason. But india has been talking about self reliance in defence sector for more than 5 years now.

This war, has led india to diversify its supplier base. Buying more from US, france and israel.

Must be appreciated that India is trying for self reliance.. we r only seeing & judging high end platforms, what abt thousands of parts, subparts which we have indegenised.. e.g. tyres of fighter planes..

Good luck India. India should have learned from the Vikramaditya fiasco. God luck getting your money back as well. Why this buddy buddy relationship with a dictator like Putin? Sad.
