Pakistan may consider purchase of different types of Russia’s military equipment including its advanced S-400 air defense systems, a high-ranking military official in Pakistan said.
“Russia has good tanks, helicopters, electronic equipment, air defense systems that Pakistan may consider. S-400 is a big ticket number and it will all depend on our budget,” the official said.
The S-400 Triumf is Russia’s next-generation air defense system, carrying three different types of missiles capable of destroying aerial targets at a short-to-extremely-long range. The weapon is capable of tracking and destroying all existing aerial targets, including ballistics and cruise missiles.
By now, the contract on systems’ delivery has been finalized only with China.
Islamabad has no plans to purchase Russia’s Sukhoi Su-35 fighter jets at the moment, a high-ranking military official stated.
