India has tested a proprietary subsonic cruise missile

42
India successfully tested its own Nirbhay subsonic cruise missile on Tuesday, the country's defense ministry said. These are the first missile tests that have been recognized as successful since 2014. The rocket was launched on Tuesday from the Chandipur test site in the state of Orissa in eastern India.


The test run has achieved all the mission objectives, from the start to the last millimeter, increasing the confidence of our scientists involved in the tests.
- said in a press release departments.

India has tested a proprietary subsonic cruise missile

Launch of the Nirbhay subsonic long-range cruise missile (Fearless).


The rocket was in the air for a total of 50 minutes, flying 647 kilometers. As noted in the department, the rocket is able to fly at a speed of Mach 0.7 at an altitude of 100 meters. According to representatives of the organization, the reasons that previously led to unsuccessful launches were eliminated. In addition, according to media reports, the rocket has a different engine.

Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman welcomed the success of the tests, noting that this success will make India a member of the elected "League of Nations" with "such sophisticated technology and subsonic cruise missile capabilities."

The Nirbhay subsonic cruise missile was developed for various types of warheads, including nuclear ones, and should hit targets at a distance of 1000 - 1500 km. According to local media, the rocket is being created in response to Pakistan’s development of the Hatf VII Babur cruise missile.

India has been testing Nirbhay missiles since 2013, but only one of four launches (not counting today) was considered successful. The last time the tests were carried out in December 2016, but then the DRDO launch was described as a “complete failure” - the rocket began to deviate dangerously from the trajectory less than two minutes after takeoff, so the self-destruct mechanism was activated, RIA News

        "Friendship of easy virtue" with all is called swine (swinging), and they (Hindus) chose the path of the Kama Sutra. They want both the Russian Su with technology, and Rafal with technology, and the SGA with giblets, for bribes! But the theorem of two, and even more so of the three chairs, cannot be solved from the position of the Kama Sutra!

      All this is understandable, but what engine is on this "pepelats"? Small-sized turbojet engines, for drones and cruise missiles, are produced only in Russia, the states, and still in Ukraine (Motor Sich product 95), but occasionally, something similar is done by Rolls-Royce. All Ukrainian engines, under the Indian contract, passed through the tactical missile weapons corporation in Korolev, and deliveries ended back in 2013. Now Motor Sich is making a batch of rocket engines for Vietnam (30 pieces of P95), but the Vietnamese are not very happy, because after the Maidan, the quality has fallen dramatically. In particular, oxygen launches began to explode during launches, which has never happened since the time of the Union.

        Not sporadically, but massively. Not Rolls-Royce, but the French. 4 European anti-ship missiles (RBS-15, NSM, Sea Eagle, Exocet) and one cruise missile fly with these engines

        it’s the catch of this system and modern horoscopes. As soon as the Russian Federation launched the production of these systems, Gauges appeared ... But even without them, the X-55 with the nuclear warhead is quite imaginary.

    Russia is postponing repairs on a nuclear submarine leased to India due to a suspicion that the Indian military is violating the lease and allowing U.S. Navy officials to carefully study the Russian submarine, media reported.

    The lease stipulates that the Russian naval officer should always be on board the leased submarine to prevent such tracking by a third party, as well as to provide technical assistance, reports Strategy Page.

    In addition, there are questions regarding the degree of damage to the sonar dome of the submarine - if it is serious enough, then the submarine will have to return to Russia, and the repair will take much more time. India provided its damage report, but Russia insisted on sending its own inspection team.



    On October 4, it was reported that the Russian nuclear submarine K-152 Nerpa, leased to the Indian Navy and dubbed the Chakra, was damaged in an accident. Her sonar dome deformed in the bow of the submarine.

    The submarine was transferred to a 10-year lease of the Indian Navy after signing the corresponding document on December 30, 2011. The submarine was officially accepted into the Indian Navy in April 2012.

    India purchased "tactical missile weapons" from the corporation, but if you decide to do it yourself, then it is clear why their missiles do not fly. As for China, they bought two R-95 300 lll series engines (modification for X-55) at Motor Sich, in 2002 (this is despite the fact that since the time of the Union, this product was considered secret). After that, the US State Department directly banned Motor Sich to sell rocket engines to China. As far as I know, the Chinese tried to copy this engine, but nothing came of it. Maybe they did something of their own.

    And when you listen to stories about the “Indian code,” much will become even clearer.
