Russia and India are jointly developing a new air cargo transport (the Il-214T). Each aircraft will cost about $20 million and the first one will be delivered in 2005. Also, Russia said it exported $4.4 billion worth of arms in 2001. Russia has agreed to sell China $400 worth of S-300PMU anti-aircraft missiles. This system can also shoot down short range ballistic missiles. China is paying for the missiles by reducing the $1.4 billion Russia owes China.

beggar Help Keep Us Online!
 

Yep, we have been forced to beg for your support. We want our readers to have a good experience while they are here. We avoid video ads and populating the pages with more than three ads unlike other sites, but this has a consequence for us -- lower revenues. We are bringing in a third of the revenue we brought in just a few years ago. We are not quite homeless yet, but we need your support to keep going. There are three ways you can help:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
