Despite of the US objection after the S-7 missile deal between India and Russia, India sealed another missile deal with Russia. India has signed a deal with Russia to buy R-27 capable of piercing targets from air to air.
These missiles will be used on open fighter jets. According to official sources, India has signed an agreement with Russia to purchase R-27 missiles aimed to shoot while flying from the sky. These missiles will be used in Indian Air Force fighter aircraft Shukhoi-1.
