Re: Indian Missiles News & Discussions - 17 Dec 2018

Oriya paper report:
While the Nirbhay missiles for the first four trials were powered by the Russian-made NPO Saturn 36MT mini turbofan engines, the missile prototype launched on Monday has the indigenously designed and developed Manik turbofan engine.
