S 400 Won't be Delivered? Indian Air Force Takes a Rs 26,000 Crore Hit Because of Russia Ukraine War
The delivery of the S-400 air defence missile system to India has been delayed due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
In all, five such missile systems have been ordered under a $5-billion deal signed in October 2018. Of the five missile systems, three have already been delivered. The delivery of the remaining two has been delayed
Geopolitics is the only way to make people practically patriotic
Every problem is an opportunity in disguise. We should take this as a challenge and become self sufficient
Instead of cutting budget, we should allocate it for R&D to DRDO or ISRO or any other pvt. Co. On loan.
We can also transfer this fund to airforce or navy also.
But cutting budget is bad step according to me.
That 26000 crore should be given to all defence research PSUs
Russia was confident about delivering all equipment at time, then Chinese visits Russia, later Russia says it can't deliver, instead of saying order will be delayed, as per my understanding, we need to be atmnirbhar, Jai hind
Now all main big Indian companies should togetherly make a composite line to build Indian big defence equipments ie engine , jet etc and after achieving certain advanced level they should separately develop
Jai Hind... proud of Indian armed forces.
I think while comparing defence budget of India and china we must kept in mind the difference in size of both countries in the term of area and economy.We must kept in mind Pakistan also tried to match the defence budget of India which is 4 times in the size to it and we can see its situation today .
Yet if India wants to expand its defence budget then it must increase size of its economy .
The situation brings an opportunity for us to look at our own capabilities. We must go for joint ventures with countries like US, France, Israel and Japan with the objective of self reliance. Involvement of our private sectors will also enhance the production capabilities and ensure a smooth supply chain.
don't worry sir, DRDO is making XR-SAM Air Defence System something similar to S-400 ... Most probably it's first test will happen in coming 2-3 years and you can see it in manufacturing around 2030.
It's the perfect time to make our own MADE-IN-INDIA defense system. Like we made NAVIC system earlier.
Currently Chinese President was on three days official visit to Kremlin, so it might be the cause behind the Russian denial of providing S-400 to India.
Malaysian Airforce didnt chose Tejas for its airforce due to lack in confidence of production/delivery on time

Am proud that I am an Indian and I love India more than my life.
"Take challenge as opportunity" I feel half of the amount should be given to DRDO and rest half to MSP, this will fulfill the promise made for farmers long time ago to some extent
Investing into betterment of economy is also like investing into defence when the times will be real bad, we'll still survive better being "Atmanirbhar Bharat"
As the delays are happening in Defence procurement from Russia it is certain that we will find another partner for that but we can't totally depend on West Especially USA
I think India should increase the domain of military manufacturing with partnership with other countries like France,Japan and USA.
At the end the Ultimate solution will be Aatmnirbhar Bharat in Defence Sector.
India should be a self reliant nation on next coming years .so govt should release most fund on R and D rather freebies subsidies.
Make a similar project for Indigenous development. One should never be disappointed, and a setback is a chance for Indian developers to develop their own capability
I think india has got a lesson that we must be self dependent and not be dependent on any other countries
Life at sea
When I heard INDIA...always make us proud
We should invest this money in R&D for long term goal of self reliance.
Give this project to IIT engineering colleges,technical institutions, or similar universities with the challenge of making similar projects in a fixed timeline
Every good thing in this world comes to an end at some point. Seems like this is the end of India-Russia special friendship, end of an era and begng of a new one.
One thing I notice in geopolitics , there is no control at all, no matter how smart people you put to handle it.

There is a difference of thinking otherwise the problem does not come to make us weak but strong
This was going to happen. It's not surprising for me. We have to build our relationship with other countries as china and Russia are going closer. There could be that china had asked Russia to delay the delivery, because as far as I remembered Russia was saying that this war won't impact delivery of weapons to other countries.
Proud to be born in India
Its too hard to maintain friendship in this cruel world
There is no permanent friend & enemy for countries future jago indian jago
IAF is at toll in many other aspects as well. MRFA and the need of 42 squadron still remains incomplete
This is an opportunity. Indian government can spend this budget in R&D for the same weapon we were buying from Russia.
" If you want Complete peace in your backyard , you have to create chaos in someone else's "
The USA has time and again proven this theory in the last century.
India has to use it in 21st Century to Survive
If not Russia then Israel & France should be major defense partners but India should avoid being dependent on USA for defense...
