Rosoboronexport signed $5.43 billion contract to supply India with five S-400 Triumph long-range air defense missile systems (ADMS) which it says is the biggest ever deal in the company’s history.
“The contract for the supply of S-400 Triumph air defense missile systems to India is the biggest for the entire period of military-technical cooperation between Russia and India and the largest in history of Rosoboronexport. Today we begin to execute it” said Mikheev.
