India has recently rolled out its new Air Force One – that is, the VVIP aircraft operated by the Indian Air Force for the government and Prime Minister.

The aircraft is Boeing 777-300ER VT-ALW.

Named Air India One, there will actually be two aircraft and both previously flew passengers for Air India before being sent for reconfiguration and upgrade in Texas.

According to Wikipedia, the new aircraft feature LAIRCM Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare Suite, Counter-Measures Dispensing System (CMDS) to protect those on board.
