Once again reliable. How did the next missile test of the Indian air defense system end?

25
Indian media have reported unsuccessful testing of the Akash ground-to-air missile, which is being developed as part of the creation of the QRSAM anti-aircraft missile system. The first successful tests of the complex in India took place last summer, but when they tried to increase the target's range, the rocket began to show technical problems.


Indian newspaper The print writes that during the next test, the launch of the rocket from the launcher went smoothly, but then the rocket “became uncontrollable” and fell into the “unset” square of the Bay of Bengal. During the tests at the site was attended by the leadership of the DRDO - the Organization of Defense Research and Development in India.

Once again reliable. How did the next missile test of the Indian air defense system end?


The success of the tests is "fifty-fifty" - two of the four launches completed unsuccessfully.

It is noted that, despite every second unsuccessful launch, the Indian Defense Ministry still plans to put a new missile into service in order to "support the Indian manufacturer." At the same time, an Indian manufacturer, whose missiles hit the target so far “through time”, announces plans to supply Akash missiles for export.

Earlier, the Indian Defense Ministry offered DRDO to finance a program to develop its own air defense system in cooperation with a “foreign partner”, however, the DRDO said that they would “cope on their own.”

        No, they still have nothing to dance with songs, but with their hands it’s more difficult to make garlands, then they have a complete seam.

          I agree, but the dances are still clumsy! Our "Ryabinushka" dances much better!

            Tourist in India:
            - What is the population of your country?
            - Somewhere in the region of a billion, maybe more.
            “What else are they doing in India?”

      let them work "in the sweat of their faces ..."

      We got rocket technology through a retreat to Stalingrad and then an offensive to Hamburg

      Closer to Amerovsky Hawk. Well, the brahmanas are again weird, they only make claims, and the mind itself does not even have 125 mm shells to make. And the test will end with the death of 2-3 elephants (sarcasm)

          As an option. They have long-standing graters there. Just watch the changing of the guards. A circus is not required after that.

            Nevertheless, there is a serious plus in their actions. Yes, it flies so-so, BUT we will take it into service to support our manufacturer. That means a lot.

      That's exactly what it looks like! Hindus are revelating that someone will write them lyuli, and they will only dance! In a word, clowns. Well, there is a good Soviet, Russian technique, but this is not enough, it is necessary to mold your own under Indian spices, and then what? wassat

        China, if desired, is likely to pump it, the only thing with Pakistan is if parity is likely

      The launcher and missile are very similar to the PU SAM 2K12 Cubic.

    Akash - weight 720 kg, length 578 cm, diameter 35 cm

    3M9 ("Cube", delivered to India) - weight ~ 600 kg, length 580 cm, diameter 33 cm




    Well, I don’t even know. Even the shape of the wings was left unchanged ... I am not against creative copying, but this rocket is more than half a century old. So they also downshifted guidance to the command, like some S-125.

      Well, they are asking that they set up production of something more modern, so what would they agree to? Well, they themselves and without outside help so far only this is what happens. The problem is that since they started, the next path will go much faster than in 50 years. Well, if not stupid of course.

    From personal observations ...
    It was possible to watch this audience when they arrived at the BF, pick up the newly built ships ..
    The problems of "caste", they are slowed down, insane !! sigrigatsiya, however) even "In the face", it can be seen))
    No investments, financial and technological, will help them)))
    "Tops" want, but can not, but the "bottom" do not want and can not, respectively))
