    Agree with you. We are to be blamed as we give too much of importance to these sickening self-imposed experts. Prahaar hits Prasun — the joker!

    @ Shiv

    Prahaar does look like Indian endo-atmospheric interceptor missile. But seems like it was not tested from the launcher that was displayed at exhibitions.

    Please provide a few more details

    Thanks

    Its seems to be a paint job on AAD. Good as long as it claims it does. Can't complain.

    Great news, again i will mention that while we test, induct or import various weapon systems, lets hope when the time comes we are open to using them, else all this would be a big waste. lets hope across our polity, we also induct tonnes of political will to ensure that we tolerate no nonsense from some of our esteemed "friends". That said, well done DRDO for this test, and god speed for future projects.

    WOW! Kudos D.R.D.O.
    What an amazing Tactical Capability the Indian Army is now Possessing.
    Firing 6 at one go! Does this mean that a Battery of Prahaar's can actually bring down an Enemy Airbase at one go? :O
    With Pin Point accuracy, maybe future developments with Ramjet Engines which could penetrate Enemy Defence Systems.
    AWESOME is an understatement, provided DRDO works on this Knowledge base and develops a truely Unique Capability.
    .
    Could someone clarify on this:
    Is it that Prahaar has Multi-Warhead Capabilities (Something like an MIRVed Missile)? or are they refering to Multi-Missile Capabilities? If it cud be MIRVed, Woohoo! Bye Bye Pakistan!

    Wik And Fable

    @Ashish It means that the missiles are launched from an erect (90*) launcher and can travel in any direction without relocating or adjusting launcher! I guess it is achieved by using an brahmos like trajectory push phase. Traveling at ~2.5 mach with guidance it can lay ruin to enemies assets with ease.
    But the main use of this missile lies in countering Pakistani Nsar of 60 km range. Pakis claimed that Nsar will be used against rapidly moving tank push by India but since our Prahar has almost 100 km more range (60 vs 150) and high mobility we can destroy their Nsar launchers with ease. Check mate.

    If the missile is so closely based on the interceptor, shouldn't it have better accuracy than 10 meters. In other words, did the interceptor tried successfully before did precisely meet its requirements ? or it was just another goof up by DRDO ?

    congrats DRDO , but just hope that drdo carries on the good work and develops it and makes it battle ready.
    Whatever they do , they must do quickly , because Pakistan too must be busy developing their's tactical missile.
    DRDO is a master is staking tall claims .
    They always flatter to decieve .
    I like to follow both Shiv's blogs as well as Prasun's blogs.
    And Prasun always asks the right questions.
    He always likes to post probing questions so that the truth comes out.
    Truly doesnt look like the launcher can accomodate 6 missiles .
    And can we believe DRDO's tall claims when there is no consistency in what they claim and do .

    Congrats DRDO ! Now get on and ghet things moving, first get rid of the vintage CC&R&D scientists who have been getting extensions for ages and give responsibility to younger scientists to show their mettle, next time to dust off the RamaRao committee report and take action. Hopefully DRDO will get more responsive.

    @Anon 7:13 Even Prasun has admitted that it indeed carries 6 missiles. Now official release as well as specifications are out there is absolutely no doubt that it will carry 6 missiles. Keep acting like an Ostrich with its head in sand.
