Russia intends to supply India with S-400 systems for $ 6 billion, sources told RBC. According to one of them, the memorandum of intentions has already been signed.

That is plenty of money. Although this is India, they can flip everything upside down in just a few days.

Couple of days ago things heated up in Gaza. Hamas and PIJ launched collectively 70 rockets and mortars in a day. Other than it being an unusual amount of projectiles, what made headlines was also the fact that Iron Dome in fact intercepted and destroyed mortar shells as well.

 

It has been quite an issue for a long time that Iron Dome was pretty much limited to defeating rockets, but thanks to additional R&D there are now missiles in service already that can defeat mortars, as well as UAVs, conventional aircraft, and perhaps cruise missiles.

 

This is quite the big news not only for Israelis but for the CRAM development in general.
