Russia is main defence partner again

Russia is making an emphatic comeback as India’s trusted and strategic partner and is on course to reclaiming the position as top supplier of defence hardware.

  1. Russia still accounts for 70 per cent of Indian arsenal, but has in recent years been overtaken by Israel and U.S. as the biggest hardware suppliers on an annual basis.
  2. Russia, still is the largest supplier due to spares and support for hardware in the inventory and the committed liabilities for programmes under way.
  3. The country’s first major project under the ‘Make in India’ will be the production of Kamov-226T utility helicopters in India.
