    The topmost schematic shows the 1,200km-range subsonic Nirbhay nuclear-armed
    cruise missile, which will be available in both air-launched and submarine-launched
    versions. The ALCM version will be qualified for use by 20 specially customised
    Su-30MKIs, while the SLCM variant will go on board the S-2, S-3 and S-4 SSBNs.

    The illustration below is that of a smaller, conventional warhead-armed air-launched
    subsonic variant of Nirbhay with a range of 750km, which will be qualified for
    launch from combat aircraft like the DARIN 3-standard Jaguar IS as well as Rafale
    M-MRCA.

    Submarine launch 1200km cruise missile...nice! :tup:

    But they should work on the torpedo tube launch system, if that happens then we can arm all our Subs will this killer missile.

    i wouldn't worry abt tomahawks,
    popeye got a range of 1500km,
    our own Nirbhay got a range of 1200km and i think Nirbhay will b gr8 for us and in future we might improve the range if needed
    for that matter no one will sell us missiles with greater range than measly 300km due to the damn MTCR.

    That is a good thing. Otherwise we would have seen the Nirbhay project abandoned by our genius MoD in favour of some other foreign product.

    Nirbhay to be test-fired in February

    HYDERABAD: Nirbhay, India's first subsonic cruise missile, will be test-fired by the end of February, said V K Saraswat, director general of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and scientific advisor to defence minister A K Antony. Saraswat was speaking to the media during a seminar on 'Nurturing, Managing and Institutionalising Innovation' organised by the Defence Research and Develoment Laboratory (DRDL) here on Friday.

    While 2012 was an eventful year for the defence organisation with almost a dozen successful launches of various kinds of missiles, this year also promises to be big with many more plans underway. "Nirbhay will be a medium-range cruise missile with advantages like the ability of not being detected and high accuracy. It is also a cheaper option," Saraswat said.

    Asked if there were any hitches in test-firing the missile as it was expected to have taken place sometime back, Saraswat said some processes had been developed and there were no hitches.

    This year, a major plan of the DRDO is 'canisterisation' of Agni IV and Agni V, which will enable firing of the missile from any platform. Another plan was to integrate Astra-III with Sukhoi. He said four Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) would be produced this year and in 2014, the necessary operational clearances would be sought.

    The DRDO has also carried out 50 of the 56 modifications sought for the Main Battle Tank (MBT) Arjun Mark-II variant by the user. The rest of the modifications will be carried out in the next few months. Saraswat said the Long Range Cruise Missile (LRCM) will have all futuristic features.

    Saraswat informed that they had got permissions for the missile testing range proposed at Machilipatnam. "It is a barren piece of land and we will turn it into a green area. There will be no environmental issues," he said. Talking about the civilian applications of defence technology, he said that the bio-digesters (toilets) were much in demand and there was a proposal with the tourism ministry on using them in buses.

    Another important application would be the kit for detection of dengue. The kits developed by DRDO will take just two hours to confirm a dengue case while the kits available elsewhere take 24 hours. Saraswat said that the technology has already been transferred to manufacturers of the anti-mosquito 'attracticide', which is available in the market.
