Indian Navy, DRDO test indigenously developed naval anti-ship missile | Watch

Attempting to boost self reliance or ‘Aatmanirbharta’, the Indian Navy, in association with Defence Research and Development Organissation (DRDO), successfully undertook Guided Flight Trials of the first indigenously developed Naval Anti-Ship Missile from Seaking 42B helicopter on 21 November.

Earlier in October, the reports arrived that DRDO is all set to test much-anticipated long-range anti-ship missile (LRASM), that would enhance the Navy’s capabilities, especially in the realm of ship-based missile systems with extended range, reported News18.

The report added that the missile may have a range of 500 kilometres which is greater than the range of 350-400 kilometres offered by the supersonic Indo-Russian cruise missile BrahMos.

Even in May 2022, India had tested its first indigenously built anti-ship missile falling in the short-range category weighing around 380 kilograms with a range of 55 kilometres. Names as ‘Naval Anti-ship Missile-short range’ (NASM-SR), they can be launched from attack helicopters.
