And the Russian defense complexes against aircraft and missiles have been successfully tested in real conditions of large-scale warfare, proving themselves to be efficient weapons for confident undertaking of the most challenging operations," Mikheev said during the ongoing visit of the Indian Defense Ministry delegation to Russia.

    Russia is a leader in the field of development and production of all the most up-to-date air defense systems and complexes, Indian Defense Ministry's Director General Apurva Chandra stated as the Indian delegation visited the site of North-Western Regional Centre (NWRC) of the Almaz – Antey Corp., which is a unique defense and industry innovation technological park, located in St. Petersburg.
