As per NEWS24 ... l-20151223

- Five S-400 systems. While the price is still to be negotiated, it’s likely to cost about $4.5bn
(That would make it the biggest deal by value since 2001, when India agreed to buy 140 Su-30MK Sukhoi fighter jets, which the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute estimates to be worth as much as $5.4bn)

Other potential deals from the trip include:
- Kamov OAO may name an Indian partner to build 200 Ka-226T light military cargo helicopters in India; the deal may be valued at $1bn, India TV reported.

- Lease of a second nuclear-powered attack submarine from Russia. The first submarine was leased in 2012 for $1bn over 10 years.

- Indian navy order for three Russian frigate warships. India paid about $1bn for three Talwar-class frigates in 1997.

- Agreement to re-start joint development of a fifth-generation fighter aircraft, stalled for two years over cost differences. Estimated project value: $10bn.

Eye watering total amount earmarked for upgrading India military: $150bn (R2.27trn) :shock: :shock: :shock:
(time period not specified, from what I can see)
