Russia mulls air defence systems service centre in India

Russian air defence systems manufacturer Almaz-Antei is in talks over setting up service centres in India, China, Vietnam, and Algeria, a company official said at the Oboronexpo 2014 arms exhibition Friday.

"Service centres are an important guideline on which we're actively working. We offer our partners to set up such centres," deputy head of the Almaz-Antei concern Vyacheslav Dzirkaln said. "It is a very effective method for operating equipment, allowing for quick decisions on modernization and repairs of air defence systems without moving them from country to country," he added
