is nothing like anything the Indian Navy ( IN) has operated so far.
The Navy, however, has assured that the first LRSAM
system will be available for testing onboard INS Kolkata before the year ends.
It is tipped to be the latest generation of long range surface- to- air missile ( LRSAM
The ship has advanced stealth features, which make it less vulnerable to detection by enemy radar and will be fitted with state-of-the-art weapon systems which include the supersonic BrahMos surface-to-surface missile, the LRSAM
Long Range Surface-to-Air Missiles and the MFStar multi-function radar system providing accurate data on surface and air targets.
THE inordinate delay in key projects, the development of long range surface-to-air missile (LRSAM
) with the help of Israel and the DRDO's indigenous sonar, is beginning to pinch the armed forces in a big way.
Having learnt its lesson, the DRDO has now tied up with Israel, to design what is called the Barak 8 Long Range Surface to Air Missile ( LRSAM
) which will be ready for induction in a year or two.
