The Brazilian Ministry of Defense will commence negotiations for the procurement of Pantsir-S1 (SA-22) and Igla (SA-18) Very Short Range Air-Defense missiles (VSHORAD). Timely delivery of the systems is critical to provide Brazil with the necessary air-defense assets it required to place for the Rio 2016 Olympic games.
India plans to modernize its Very Short Range Air Defense Systems (VSHORAD) systems currently relying on the Russian SA-18 missile with new missiles. For 800 launchers and an initial delivery of 5,000 missiles, India intends to spend over US$5.2 billion. Four candidates are being considered, from Russia, South Korea, Sweden and France with testing and evaluated to commence in May - June this year.
