India’s DRDO on Sunday successfully test-fired army variant medium-range surface-to-air missile (MRSAM) off the coast of Odisha’s Balasore.
The army version of MRSAM flight tested from ITR off Odisha coast intercepted a high speed aerial target at long range. The target was destroyed by the missile in a direct hit, confirms DRDO. The system’s air version has been handed over to IAF while most all recent Indian navy ships are equipped with the MRSAM system.
Today’s test comes after India’s surface-to-surface BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired on Wednesday. MRSAM Air and Missile Defense System is a cutting edge innovative system, that once again has proven its advanced capabilities against a variety of threats.
