December 24, 2015 11:47 pm | Updated November 16, 2021 04:04 pm IST - MOSCOW:

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

AlmazAntey developed the S-400 Triumf air defence system that India plans to buy for Rs. 40,000 crore.

“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’ as well as the offset policies of the Indian Ministry of Defence,” a statement by the Anil Ambani Group said.

The two sides also discussed joint implementation of modernisation, repair and deep overhauls of AlmazAntey systems already in service with the Indian forces. They also discussed R&D cooperation for developing new products in the defence sector, the statement said.

Reliance Defence Ltd. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Reliance Infrastructure Limited.

With industrial licences for the full spectrum of military platforms, Reliance Defence is the fastest emerging private sector enterprise that is aiming for development, manufacture and supply of defence aerospace, land and naval platforms and equipment. — PTI
