India began to find substitute Russian Wasps and cubes

India began to look for a replacement Soviet "Wasps" and "cubes"Army India gave the start of the tender for the supply of new anti-aircraft missiles short range, which will have to change the outdated 9K33 "Osa" and 2Q12 "Cube" Russian production, reports the Indian agency 8ak. Most of the Russian air defense system used by India, hopelessly outdated and are not applicable to the use of state.

Under the terms of the Indian tender army SAM needs to able to storm targets at ranges up to 20 km long and filled with passive and active systems support aircraft.
