    Something is somehow quite weak. 500 kg per 350 km and along a ballistic trajectory ...

    I look at the photos of their rockets. And I understand how many decades ours have gone forward. A rocket open to all winds with huge stabilizers. . I am sure that the primitive. Yes, and radar visibility. As a target, by the way, you can use it.

      So far, yes ...
      Twenty years later, the primitive transforms into something average ... but the main thing is that it is native and not purchased from abroad ... in general, looking at the aggressive policy of war hawks, the Indians understand that without these weapons it will be difficult for them to defend their interests in the region.

      And this is nothing that we still carry people into space on a rocket, the basis of which - albeit a seriously modernized one, but a rocket developed back in the sixties?

    Never Iskander. The Indians have not succeeded yet. By parameters - pure "V-2" laughing Well, another 75 years, and they will succeed.

      The whole joke is that the Iskanders do not fly along a ballistic trajectory. This is almost the most important thing in modern missiles: to fly low above the surface, going around obstacles, maneuvering at the target and not letting oneself be discovered. And here really is some sort of V-2 ...

    This is something like our "Scat". And the size of the rudders is our X-30.

    Do ships have weapons from ballistic anti-ship missiles?

    Unfortunately, there is no news editor on Voennoye Obozreniye who would “filter” such “news”. The publication contains a number of gross "blunders". negative For example:
    Indian Defense Ministry Announces Success test Russian-made ballistic missile Prithvi-II, reports RIA Novosti news agency ANI.
    The Prithvi-2 OTRK has been in service in India for over 10 years, i.e. this is not a test but a training and control start-up.
    Next:
    According to an agency citing the military, “a rocket medium range Prithvi-II was launched from a mobile launcher at the Chandipur training range in Odish. ”
    BRSD are considered missiles with a launch range of 1000 — 5500 km and “Prithvi-2” with a launch range of 350 km is operational-tactical.
    In general, this liquid rocket is obsolete. Its design is based on the earlier Prithvi-1 with a maximum launch range of 150 km. The missiles of the Soviet S-75 air defense system were largely the basis for these missiles.
