LRSAM missile from Israel delivered to India E-mail

India announced on 29 August that the first long-range surface-to-air missile (LRSAM) system had been delivered to the Indian defence ministry.

The missile is a product of a partnership between Israel’s aerospace industry and the Indian defence organisation. Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) announced in May that it had signed a deal worth US$630 million with Indian state-owned Bharat Electronics Limited.

As part of the agreement, IAI supplied the LRSAM missile, the marine version of the Barak 8 air defence system, to be installed on four Indian Navy vessels.

Arun Jaitley, India’s Minister of Defence, praised the delivery, affirming that it marked a turning point for India’s defence capabilities.

“This is an historical day for India, in which our navy becomes the proud owner of one of the most sophisticated systems in the world. This system will help the Indian Navy protect our country,” he said.
