Reliance Defence Ltd and Russia’s leading developer and manufacturer of air defence missile systems, AlmazAntey, have decided to work jointly on the entire range of AD missile and radar systems required for the Indian defence forces.

The two sides identified the air defence missile systems including the TOR-1M missile programme, radars and automated control systems, as areas of partnership under the Make in India scheme, as well as offset policies of India’s ministry of defence.

AlmazAntey developed the S-400 Triumf air defence system that India plans to buy for about R40,000 crore.

Both sides also discussed the joint implementation of modernisation, repair and deep overhauls of AlmazAntey systems already in service with the Indian armed forces.

According to a statement by Anil Ambani-led Reliance Group, the two sides also discussed R&D cooperation for developing new products in the defence sector. Reliance Group chairman Anil Ambani said, “Our proposed partnership will constitute an important milestone in the strategic relationship between the two countries.”

V F Medovnikov, vice-chairman of AlmazAntey, said “Working with Reliance Defence will help us develop new directions for both companies to address future requirements of the Indian armed forces.”
