Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has signed deals worth USD93 million with the Indian Navy (IN) and India’s state-owned Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) to provide additional equipment for the IN’s Barak-8 air- and missile-defence systems.

The company announced in a 30 January statement that it will supply “complementary systems for the air-defence system”, adding that the contracts “involve follow-up orders for a range of maintenance and other services” for the various sub-systems of the naval Barak 8.

Industry sources told Jane’s on 1 February that Barak-8-series missiles with a 70-km range are intended for fitment onto INS Vikrant , the 37,500-tonne aircraft carrier on order for the IN that is under construction at CSL and scheduled to begin sea trials in 2020. Read More
