Posted 2 October 2021 · Add Comment

Indian military personnel are undergoing the second phase of training in Russia in handling the S-400 air defence systems, the delivery of which will commence by the end of his year, writes Jay Menon

"As far as instruction is concerned, we are through with training the first group of specialists.
Another one is being instructed. “I would not talk about the number of people but it is a sufficient number for the Indian armed forces to effectively operate our equipment. The results shown by the Indian specialists trained in the first group were rather high,” Vyacheslav Dzirkaln, deputy CEO of the air and space defence firm Almaz-Antey, said recently at a press conference.
The second phase of training involves new Indian operators. The first group of Indian specialists completed the training. In October 2018, India signed a US$5.43 billion deal with Russia for five S-400 Triumf regiments despite objections from the U.S. and the threat of sanctions under Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
The first batch of S-400s for India is at the final stage of production. Deliveries will begin as planned in the fourth quarter of 2021.
