New Delhi, April 5 – A senior source in the Indian Ministry of Defense told Ani that India will soon test the S-400 anti-aircraft missile system bought from Russia.
“Very soon it is planned to fire one of the short-range or medium-range missiles at a fast-moving air target,” said the representative of the Indian Ministry of Defense.
He pointed out that the Russian anti-aircraft missile system has missiles that can shoot down fighters or cruise missiles with a maximum range of 400 km. The ministry spokesperson added that the Indian Army had fired one of these during tests in Russia, but the system has not yet been tested in India.

Russia and India signed a contract for the supply of S-400 in October 2018. As it became known earlier, five batches of the regiment will cost Delhi $ 5.43 billion. India has become the third foreign buyer of these systems after China and Turkey and has already adopted the first two batteries for its missile systems.
According to Indian media, the systems have been deployed so that they can cover the Ladakh sector bordering China, as well as the country’s borders in the state of West Bengal.
In February, Russian Ambassador to Delhi Denis Alipov said India would soon receive a third of the supplies under the contract.
