    PAK SCAN: Strategic Anxiety Feared As India Inks Multi-Billion Dollar Missile Deal With Israel

    NEW DELHI – India has inked a $2.5 billion missile deal with Israel to jointly develop a medium-range surface-to-air missile system for Indian military stirring anxiety among the south Asian members.

    The multi-billion contract between the Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) was approved by India’s Cabinet Committee on Security, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, ahead of his visit to Israel, according to Indian media.

    The MR-SAM missile with a range of 50 km-70 km is the latest in a series of other variants of surface-to-air missile systems for the Indian Navy and Air Force being jointly manufactured by both countries.

    As per the deal, five regiments of the missile, which consists of 40 units and 200 missiles, will be developed.

    ‘The system will be based on the older Barak system of Israel, which is in use in India. It is being changed as per requirements,’ a defense source was quoted as saying.

    The system, which will be manufactured in India with 80 per cent indigenous content, would play a crucial role in developing the target homing system, the source said, adding delivery of the system would begin in 2023.

    India and Israel are also in advanced stage of negotiations for the purchase of two more long-range Phalcon Airborne Warning And Control System (AWACS).

    :hmm:

    No, that's an AGM-176 Griffin A2G or S2S missile (in this case launched off the deck of a Cyclone class patrol vessel) used to counter fast boats at sea, like those used by Iran in the Persian Gulf, an area where multiple Cyclones are deployed. Surface-launched Hellfire

    And Sea Spear, a variant of Brimstone, are comparable systems.

    With a surface-launch range of just 8km, it'd be a poor ballistic missile.


    What was it Gessler said about the quality of IDN?

    IDN functions as an amateur blog on defence & security matters concerning India primarily also as an aggregator of news related to the above topics appearing in print media across the globe . You'd rarely see an original post pertaining to such matters appear in this blog & most of the ones that do appear leave much to be desired as far as professionalism & command over the subject goes.This can be extended to professional writing about defence related matters too.There are far too few who are qualified to do so.However , on matters related to strategic thought , the signs are encouraging .

    IDN & similar blogs have much distance to cover compared to similar blogs or news aggregators in the West .But one has to make a start somewhere .The profusion of internet across India will see many such attempts .Many will fold up in due course.Hopefully , in time the ones that survive will be professional as the subject of defence studies & strategic matters in India is still in its infancy .We have a long way to go & much distance to cover rapidly .

    Range has reduced..
    Could be due to compactness of system or mobility in vehicles reducing the size of missile..

    The range is 90km. Both the Naval and Land versions have been tested for it.

    A ER Version with probable range between 150-180 km is under development.

    Further there has been a small mistake in reporting.

    It will be " 40 TELs with 200 ready to fire missile units ".

    The total number of missiles would be much more.

    @PARIKRAMA @Agent_47

    So we will have all the 3 arms using B8.

    Navy using it as LRSAM would equip its front line destroyers , AC and Frigates with it.

    While IAF and IA using it as MRSAM.

    Any idea about IAFs order ?

    As for Pakistan , it's their " Gayi Bhains Pani me " type situation , as all their Babur , Raad , C802 and C602 goes down the drain.

    So its obvious they would be having sleepless nights right now....

    If S400 deal too happens , then quite a few fanboys in the useless jihadi forum would die of heart attack

    Not exactly. Their missile is not only MIRV, but also independently, highly manoeuvrable - loitering - chaff dispensing - form changing - formless missile which will beat 4 layers of Air Defences!!!!:biggthumpup:

    (and above claim followed by a string of religious incantations to drive in the point if anyone doubts it, since religious belief can make it further invincible):cheesy:

    Do indulge me .Is a 4 tier Air Defence system such as ours , any real guarantee against the CM's & BM's they fire at us ,whether individually or in saturation mode ? I'm not referring to MIRV or MaRV here.

    If yes , what percentage of these will we be able to neutralise ?

    I enjoy the phrase 'saturation mode'

    What does that mean? Someone really make me understand this term. The Pakistani's love to use this term. But will anyone, who has even 1% of functional brain capacity, really fall for this nonsense?

    Saturation can only be for a point defence - say for a single warship. You 'saturate' it's defences so that at least one missile gets through by firing more than it's defensive capability.

    Now take it on a national perspective - how many interceptor layers does India have? Add to it, modes of interception. And to cause a catastrophic damage to India, one will need literally thousands of missiles being fired on India simultaneously!!!!!

    For that - you need an economic-technological base to match up and surpass your enemy's resilience. Plus not to mention the recurrent costs of maintaining such a large arsenal.

    So now, one need only look at US intervention in Afghanistan ... as per open sources they fired 700 of their 1200 Cruise Missiles ......!!!!

    So now, with the defence budget US has, 700 could do naught ... what do you think will Pakistan be able to lob?

    And please do not even talk of nukes like they do. I can assure you, that our first strike will be in before they can launch their nukes ..... we are that good
