New Missile ‘Prahaar’ Debut Testfire Tomorrow
India’s newest missile, Prahaar, is scheduled to be test-fired tomorrow from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) on the country’s eastern seaboard. The missile (the existence of which had been unknown until a few weeks ago) has been officially described as a quick reaction surface to surface weapon that will be road-mobile, cannisterised and in a six-missile per unit configuration. Nothing else is officially known, though there has been — and continues to be — a great deal of speculation over what the missile’s antecedents are. The DRDO has said the missile has been in development for four years. Stay tuned for updates tomorrow.
