India is all set to sign several big-ticket defence deals with Russia. Prime Minister Narendra Modi will sign a deal this weekend with Russian President Vladimir Putin to acquire Moscow’s most advanced air defence system.

India will sign up to acquire five S-400 ‘Triumph’ anti-missile defence systems for 5 billion dollars, said sources.

PM Modi will meet Putin in Goa on Saturday on the sidelines of the BRICS Summit, where they will ink the deal.

The S-400  is Russia’s most modern air defence system and has been deployed to Syria where Moscow is conducting a bombing campaign in support of long-time ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

The system can track some 300 targets and shoot down around three dozen simultaneously over a range of several hundred kilometres.

If the deal is signed,  India will become the second country to possess S-400s.
