According to the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization DRDO, India has successfully tested the Akash - Next Generation (Akash-NG) missile. Such missiles are equipped with domestic-made anti-aircraft missile systems with the same name.


Tests of the new generation air defense system took place on Monday at a training ground near the village of Chandipur in the state of Odishi in the east of the country. The launch was carried out from a mobile platform. The rocket is said to have intercepted with perfect precision. At the same time, she completed all the test tasks, performing complex maneuvers during the flight. During the test launch, the entire trajectory of the rocket was monitored, and flight data was recorded by various rangefinder devices.

During the tests, the performance of the control system, avionics and aerodynamic configuration of the rocket was successfully confirmed.

- says the message DRDO.

The air defense missile system is designed to combat aircraft, drones, cruise missiles and is capable of tracking up to 10 targets simultaneously. Unlike the previous model, which operates in a 30-kilometer radius, the range of destruction of the new-generation complex is 70 kilometers.

    An attempt to create an analogue of the Buk-M3 air defense system.

    So the declared indicators are growing, improving ... and then, they themselves use it, if that.

      Earlier, a range of 50 km was declared for Akash-NG. Analogue of SAM Buk-M3. There are also 6 missiles per launch and the range of destruction is already 70 km.



      Unlike the existing versions of Akash-1 and Akash-1S, the new generation complex will have completely new transport and launch containers - six missiles will be placed on the launcher. In the development of this air defense system, Indian engineers used the experience of participation in the Indo-Israeli programs MR-SAM and LR-SAM, in particular, the technology of a double-pulse engine and an active radar seeker was applied.

      According to new reports, Akash-NG will be mounted on a light wheeled chassis, the firing range has been increased from 35 to 50 km.

    India still has some results in the do-in-India program. Slowly, but it turns out .... They cooperate with Israel in naval air defense. Most of the ships have Barak-8. Including those produced in Russia for India.

    Is this a new generation air defense system?
    Expensive rockets have not been held in the open air for a long time, the whole new generation is installed in sealed containers
