India-Israel jointly test-fires deadly missile defense system.
Another achievement has been included in the field of Indian defense. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), on Tuesday, announced that India and Israel successfully test-fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile. The modern technology MRSAM (Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile) defense system was test fired, to destroy enemy fighter jets.
This is a significant push to India's defense abilities. These missiles are capable of destroying enemy fighter jets at a distance of 50 to 70 km in the air.
IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries) and DRDO India effectively test-fired the MRSAM air defense system at a test range in India and validated all components of the weapons system. The Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile is an advanced path-breaking air and missile defense system that provides extreme protection against an assortment of aerial objectives.
The tweet from Israel Aeronautics Industries talked:
“IAI and DRDO successfully test-fired the MRSAM air defense system past week at a test range in India. The MRSAM is an advanced path-breaking air and missile defense system that provides extreme safeguard against a variety of airborne stages.”
The MRSAM missile defense system has been jointly developed by India's DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) and Israel's IAI (Israel Aeronautics Industries). This air defense missile system is to be used in all three major wings of the Indian Army, ie, Army, Air Force and Navy. Israel's security forces will also use it. The system includes command and control, high tech radar, mobile launchers, interceptors, and advanced RF seekers. According to IAI, all components of the missile defense system met all expected test criteria.
Proud moment for Israeli army:
“The MRSAM Air and Missile Defense System is the latest, innovative and modern framework. This system has once again proven its ability to protect against air hazards. Testing an air defense system is a complex process every time, ”said Boaz Levy, President, and CEO of Israel Aerospace Industries.
According to the reaction from the IAI, the test was effectively conducted in the presence of our experts and Indian scientists. During this time, different references of flight tests were surveyed which was fruitful on each norm.
