    India would flight test sub-sonic, medium range cruise missile Nirbhay, next month, a key defence official said on Friday.

    Nirbhay is being developed by Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), a Defence Research and Development Organisation lab based here, V K Saraswat, Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister, told a press
    conference here.

    “This is in the final stage of integration and we expect to launch it next monthâ€￾, Mr. Saraswat, also Secretary in the Department of Defence (R&D) and DRDO Director General, said.

    He said Nirbhay has good loitering capability, good control and guidance, high degree of accuracy in terms of impact and very good stealth features.

    ADE Director P S Krishnan said Nirbhay would be launched from Integrated Test Range at Chandipur in Orissa.

    Around July(most probably ) came news articles about 3 tests of Nirbhay this years, it might be a Nirbhay.

    Also close is PDV.

    Roughly a 200 km zone..
    No safe height so it implies a projectile test.
    I dont think it will be UAV. You wont do that over sea and if it crashes its non retrievable.
    Need to see if anything is there for a 150-160 km range and safety added 20-25% margin.
    if its SSM then again it will be a disguise for a sub system partially tested in it.
    Might be a drop and limited course test for a air launched projectile as well.
    Lets see what comes out..

    Seeing the range
    It might be
    1. Another set of B8 tests.
    2.Test of an Air Launched System(May be glide bombs or missile ) as said by @PARIKRAMA
    3. Test of Prahaar SSM

    I am hoping for a Prahaar test though. We need to replace all the sub 500 kilometre ballistic missiles with modern solid fuel TEL based missiles.
