Nirbhay missile will join Indian Army and Navy

New Delhi
 : The dispute between India and China over the LC border of Ladakh continues. Under no circumstances, the Indian Army is preparing to give an agreement to the enemy Chinese army. This is the reason why the Indian Army has deployed another missile on the LC border. The name of this missile is Nirbhay Missile.

The Defense Acquisition Council headed by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has formally approved the induction of Nirbhay into the army. However, the army did not wait for the formalities to deploy the new missile and has already deployed some on LAC against China.

Nirbhay missile has a range of 1,000 km. This missile is capable of flying between 100 meters to four km from the ground and detects the target before engaging. The Nirbhay missile can only hit from ground to ground. It has been created by the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO).

The missile will be tested for the seventh month next month, after which it will be formally inducted into the Army and Navy. But in the meantime, the army has deployed this missile on LC precisely in view of tense situation with China. Traveling at a speed of 0.7 Mach, the missile has the capability of both terrain hugging and C-skimming, due to which it cannot be detected and the enemy is unable to respond.

The Western Theater Command of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) in Tibet and Xinjiang deployed 2,000 km range and long-range surface-to-air missiles. On Wednesday, India successfully test-fired a new version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from the integrated launch site at Balasore in Odisha.

On this occasion, DRDO officials informed about the deployment of Nirbhay missile on LC. The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile has a range of about 400 km. A defense ministry statement said that this surface-to-surface cruise missile is equipped with indigenous boosters and 'airframes' with specifications like other sub-systems built in India.
