India and Israel have successfully tested a Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) defence system. This missile defence system, developed jointly to deal with airstrikes by enemy countries, was tested last week. MRSAM is an air and missile defence system that provides imprecise defence cover to a variety of aerial platforms. According to defence experts, MRSAM can destroy enemy aircraft from a distance of 50 to 70 km. Developed in partnership with Israel and India; MRSAM will be used in all three wings of the Indian Army. Israel's security forces will also use it. The high-tech radar, mobile launcher, interceptor, and the advanced RF seeker present in it utilise new technology. The command and control system of the defence system is also excellent.
The new development by the DRDO and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) is unique in it and will greatly improve the combat capabilities of the two countries.
The Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) tweeted "IAI and DRDO successfully test launch the MRSAM air defence system last week at a test range in India. The MRSAM is an advanced path-breaking air and missile defence system that provides ultimate protection against a variety of aerial platforms."
Boz Levy, CEO of Israeli defence company IAI said that “the MRSAM defence system was designed keeping in mind the challenges of today's era. This success found in the trial is very important. It is a matter of pride for us to work with DRDO. We are committed to walking ahead on this path of success.”
