Barak LR-SAM First Test Firing!
The Barak-8 next generation long range surface to air missile (LR-SAM) being developed and funded jointly by IAI and DRDO, had its first test-flight last fortnight, reports India Today associate editor Sandeep Unnithan, with a second test to take place at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in India later this year. I had reported in January about the first impending flight that is reported to have taken place a fortnight ago. My post about the Barak-8 advert is here, and more impression images of the missile are here. Unnithan’s exclusive interview with DRDO chief VK Saraswat and his piece ‘Trimming the Fat’ will be in the June 6 edition of India Today magazine.
