Business Standard - - ECONOMY & PUBLIC AFFAIRS -

In­dia on Fri­day suc­cess­fully test-fired a new gen­er­a­tion anti-ra­di­a­tion mis­sile from a Su-30 MKI fighter air­craft of the In­dian Air Force that can de­stroy a wide va­ri­ety of en­emy radars, air de­fence sys­tems and com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­works from large stand­off ranges, of­fi­cials said.

The mis­sile, Ru­dram-1, is In­dia’s first in­dige­nously de­vel­oped anti-ra­di­a­tion weapon sys­tem and it was test-fired by the De­fence Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Or­gan­i­sa­tion, at an in­te­grated test range in Bala­sore in Odisha at around 10:30 am, of­fi­cials said.

The flight test­ing of the mis­sile comes in the midst of In­dia’s bit­ter bor­der row with China in east­ern Ladakh.
