Indo-Israeli LRSAM Range Extended By A Third


25.09.2015 by Livefist

The Indo-Israeli LRSAM/Barak-8 began its first hot trials with the Israeli Navy in May this year. In what could be the single most significant development in the weapon system's long-drawn journey, the Indian Navy has confirmed to Livefist that the LRSAM will sport an operational range a third higher than initially agreed upon. In effect, the LRSAM's range now moves from 70-km to in excess of 90-km or higher. Range upgrade discussions took place in November last year following a land test in Israel.


IAI and India's DRDO missile cluster (led by the DRDL) that have jointly developed the missile system, designated the Barak 8 for Israel and yet to be officially named in India, have begun work on boosting weapon range.


With preliminary integration activity already on, Livefist can also confirm that the LRSAM is all set to undergo its first test firing from Indian Navy destroyer INS Kolkata in November-December this year in the Arabian Sea. The weapon system is intended for a host of frontline surface combatants, including all future fighting ships of the Indian Navy.


Top Navy tell Livefist that while the 2nd Kolkata-class destroyer Kochi set to enter service on September 30, like the first ship of its class, sports a BEL-built HUMSA NG bow mounted sonar, the contracted active towed array sonar will be integrated within the next 16-18 months.

NEW DELHI, 10 novembre - RIA Novosti


L'Inde et Israël ont testé un missile sol-air guidé à longue portée, LRSAM, sur le territoire israélien, a annoncé lundi le gouvernement indien.


"Tous les systèmes, y compris le radar, le système de lancement et le missile, ont fonctionné comme prévu et le missile a détruit sa cible", a indiqué le gouvernement dans un communiqué.


Les représentants de l'entreprise de construction aéronautique Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) et de l'agence indienne Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) ont assisté à l'essai du missile qui doit équiper les forces armées des deux pays.
