Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion - June'14

Even if it is just 1000 km in 70 mins, it's supersonic, isn't it?


No.. 1000 km / 70 mins is approximately 230 m/s. since the missile travels quite close to the GL, the speed of sound can be taken as 330 m/s.
Therefore, the average speed of the missile for that 1000 km track is Mach 0.72.
