India will purchase two additional Russian-made airborne warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, the Times of India newspaper said on Monday.

India ordered three A-50EI variants fitted with Israeli-made Phalcon radar systems in 2004. The first aircraft was scheduled to arrive in 2007-08, but was subject to delays.

India received the first plane in May 2009 and the second in March 2010. It is expected that the third aircraft will be delivered by the end of the year.

“We have already moved the case for two more AWACS,” IAF chief Air Chief Marshal P V Naik told the Times of India.
