Indian Navy to get more Israeli Barak 8 missiles in $630-mn deal with IAI

Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) said on Sunday it has won an additional $630 million contract to supply air defence missile systems for four ships of the Indian navy.

The contract will be carried out, for the first time, with state-owned Bharat Electronics Ltd, which serves as the main contractor in the project as part of the Modi government's "Make in India" policy.

Israel's Barak 8 long-range surface-to-air missile system was successfully tested last week aboard an Indian navy ship. During the trial scenario, an airborne threat was identified and an intercepting missile was launched and destroyed the target.

In April, IAI struck a deal worth almost $2 billion to supply India's army and navy with missile defence systems. Israel is one of the top three arms suppliers to India.

Two M777 towed howitzers arrive for Indian Army trials

155 mm 

Two M777 A-2 (Indian) ULHs arrived today for preparation of firing tables. During this event, the guns will fire 155-mm indigenous ammunition. As per the contract agreement, firing tables are being prepared by the contracted agency — U.S. government and BAE Systems with support of the Army,” the Army said in a statement.

Last November, India entered into a contract with the U.S. government under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) programme for buying 145 BAE Systems-built M777 A-2 artillery guns in a $737-million deal.

Twenty-five of them will be imported and 120 assembled in India in partnership with the Mahindra group. As the 39-calibre towed artillery gun made of titanium and aluminium alloys weighs only four tonnes, they can be transported under-slung on helicopters.
