    New Delhi and Moscow have signed an agreement on the deliveries of S-400 air defense systems, Indian Minister of State Rao Inderjit Singh said Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The S-400 is Russia's next-generation air defense system, carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at short-to-extremely long range. It is capable of tracking and destroying all existing aerial targets, including ballistics and cruise missiles.

    "We've signed that agreement," Singh said.

    When asked to give a date on the first deliveries of the defense system, Singh said, "It's hard to say, but as soon as possible."
