India developing 400 km Long-Range Air Defense Missile System

New Delhi: In a significant stride towards bolstering self-reliance in the defense sector, India is currently in the process of indigenously developing a formidable three-layered long-range surface-to-air missile (LRSAM) defense system. This state-of-art system is designed to effectively neutralize enemy aircraft and missiles at an impressive range of approximately 400 kilometers.

The proposal for this revolutionary three-layered long-range surface-to-air missile system has reached an advanced stage within the Defense Ministry and is anticipated to undergo clearance soon, according to reliable defense sources reports.

With a budget exceeding USD 2.5 billion, this ambitious project will elevate India to an elite league of militaries boasting indigenous capabilities to swiftly intercept hostile aerial threats from such extensive distances.

Comprising three tiers of surface-to-air missiles, this system boasts the unique advantage of engaging targets across varying ranges with precision and efficiency.

The tireless efforts of India and Israel's collaboration have already borne fruit with the successful development of the medium-range surface-to-air missile system (MRSAM), renowned for its ability to strike aerial targets up to 70 plus kilometers.

Sources suggest that the Indian system will undoubtedly showcase remarkable capabilities, placing it on par with the highly-regarded S-400 air defense system, which India previously acquired from Russia and deployed along its borders with China and Pakistan.

The Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has achieved significant milestones in developing air defense weaponry for both ground-based and warship-based systems.
