[I tend to discount that because ABM inherently requires rapid firing ability. Eventual production system will IMHO has to be canisterized tube launch kind of beast. Not sure how the US does it with the SM-3 / THAAD thing (which I think was canceled).... but even if the PAD was canisterized, the ca...

.... Its not for surface bombardment, rather the stabilized launch system the Dansuh offers would be useful for the PAD launchers. If that were the case then we would see the next gen battle groups with Barak NG for anti-AShM/SAM role and a littoral surface assets fielding PAD (what about AAD, that...

Another very interesting part of the story is "Naval Use", it'll be a hall of a thing even better than AEGIS and close to SM3 if done in "correct" manner. :twisted: Adds another twist to the Dansuh system and neatly answers the questions around the utility of a Prithivi on a nav...

One consideration if the intercept was done at the apogee or the decent of the Prithivi-II target missile is that the signature of the Prithivi-II would be larger since the warhead does not separate in the Prithivi or most other SRBMs (like the LORAS or US MLRS or the numerous ding dong pakee SCUD c...

Mach 11.5 (3.5Km/sec) Mach 15(4.5Km/sec) These numbers correspond to firing at an angle such that terminal velocity is at 45 degree elevation ( this also allow reader to roughly estimate the ground imprint when payload becomes active ;) ). Bheri bheri different from any other missile in world. Adde...
