Russia and India have signed a deal agreeing to the delivery of the Russian S-400 Triumph air defence systems, during a meeting held on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit in Goa, Saturday.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dimitri Rogozin called the S-400s Russia's "newest system," stating that it has "an extended range and high accuracy." Rogozin added that the S-400 "is not only an anti-aircraft system, it can also defend from missiles."

Rogozin continued, "the fact that we came to this decision with India and China means a lot. In this way, Russia supplies their most outstanding technologies to countries which we trust and develop our strategic relations with," referring to India and China as "our closest friends."

The S-400 air defence system is manufactured by Russian arms company Almaz-Antey. The system is employed to ensure air defence using long and medium range missiles that can hit aerial and land targets at ranges up to 400km (248 miles). The Russian Defence Ministry previously announced that 16 regiments of the Russian Army will be equipped with S-400 systems by the end of the year.
