Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion - June'14

My understanding is that we have 5 systems - 4 batteries in each system - 4 launchers per battery - a launcher can launch 4 missiles at a time.

5x4x4x4 = 320 missiles at a time towards killing Gazwa-e-hind psychos?

Or is that wishful thinking.

Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion - June'14

Could we potentially intercept Paki missiles in boost phase with S-400? I remember reading a article once where Avinash Chander was quoted as saying that DRDO will eventually look to build ABM system that can target missiles in boost phase itself. Further, given Pakistan's lack of geographical depth...

Re: ABM/Missile Defense Discussion

Worst case, the missile targeted at Mumbai may end up taking out Panvel, or Charkhi Dadri instead of Delhi. Dont say that I am from Charkhi Dadri :) !! ...but in any case the fallout would still affect much of the NCR. Theoretically doable, but not feasible - lasers and other directed energy are pr...

Out of curiosity, how does interception/destruction of the carrier missile ensure that the warhead is also destroyed. What if the warhead is detonated upon a particular altitude....the missile might be destroyed but if the warhead is still intact it may still explode? Secondly, can we not intercept ...

Re: ABM/Missile Defense Discussion

The mission control centre computer found that the interception was not warranted and accordingly did not allow take-off of the interceptor missile. The cause of the target malfunction is being investigated by an analysis of telemetre data,' the official said. I think we can take some Solace in the...

No doubt we have to learn, but learning takes time, especially when you are DRDO....and judging by the neighbors we are blessed with, time is really not a luxury - so until learning isn't complete there should be a fall-back option.
