In the emerging time of growing ties between India and the United States, the U.S. has now offered its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system. It is an anti-ballistic missile defense system which has a very high kill rate.

However, there has been no confirmation from India whether it will accept the offer. Some speculate that a discussion on the offer may be conducted during the 2+2 Dialogue which is scheduled to be held this year. It is also presumed to be a counter to Russia’s offer of the S400 to India.

Meanwhile, discussions are still on regarding the possible sale of other military hardware, such as drones.
