Just like Washington, India is planning to get a high-end missile defense shield for the capital Delhi. Though the capital already has a missile defense system, it is old and in need of heavy upgrades.

Per the reports, the process is already underway to get missile defense shields like Washington and Moscow. Also, the protocol for shooting down any aerial threat will also be changed with new systems.

It is yet to be decided which system will be installed, but some speculate it will be Akash surface to air missile defense system, which is one of the primary air defense assets of the Indian Air Force.
