India signs a missile deal with Israel

A leading state-run Israeli defence company said that it has signed a $777 million contract with India for the supply of Barak 8 long-range surface-to-air defence missiles and missile defence systems for the Indian Navy. Israel Aerospace Industries said India’s Bharat Electronics Limited will be the main manufacturer for the project.

The IAI will supply LR-SAM and Air and Missile Defense systems, the marine version of the AMD system Barak 8, for seven ships of the Indian Navy.

India maintains close relations with Israel’s defence establishment, and has entered into several deals with Israeli defence companies.
