Is S400 defense system India’s answer to china’s aggression

What is the S-400?

Produced by Russian state-claimed protection organization, Almaz-Antey, the S-400 Triumf (likewise knows as the SA-21 Growler by NATO countries) is one of the most progressive rocket guard frameworks available, intended to connect with focuses at scopes of up to 400 km, in an escalated sticking condition, says James Bosbotinis, a UK-based barrier pro and Defense iQ supporter.

Not exclusively is it profoundly progressed, however it costs a small amount of its partners. While the S-400 framework costs around $500 million, the U.S. Loyalist Pac-2 comes in at around $1 billion. Such a huge value distinction is commonly because of the absence of upkeep bolster connected to Russian-made arms, though buying from the U.S. accompanies critical advantages.

As Andrew Hunter, Director of the Defense-Industrial Initiatives Group at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told CNBC, “When outside militaries purchase American, well beyond the buy, they are purchasing an organization with the U.S. military.”
