Iron Fist' at Pokhran, IndiaIndia to Deploy Two Ballistic Missile Defense Systems Near Pakistan Border
ASIA & PACIFIC
15:13 07.08.2017
The ballistic missile defense grid that will protect the western and northern regions of the country will help guard New Delhi and Mumbai.
An Agni IV missile capable of carrying nuclear warhead and a range of 2,500-3,500 kilometers is displayed during the main Republic Day parade in New Delhi, India, Thursday, Jan. 26, 2012

Once Aimed at Pakistan, Indian Nuclear Program Sets Missile Sights on China
New Delhi (Sputnik) — India has decided to install its homemade ballistic missile defense systems at two villages in the western state of Rajasthan. The villages in Alwar and Pali are both less than 800 kilometers from the Pakistani capital Islamabad.
The counter attack missiles will be able to provide double layered security with the capacity to shoot down enemy missiles both within the earth's atmosphere (endo-atmospheric) and outside it (exo-atmospheric). State owned Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) had conceived the programme in 1999 and since then, the programme has witnessed many trials and upgrades.

The ready version consists of long-range tracking radar developed in partnership with Israeli company Elta. The second component is a computerized command and control system that plots and predicts the intruding missile's flight path and assigns interceptor missiles to destroy it. The third component is the interceptor missiles and includes the endo-atmospheric missile can intercept incoming targets at an altitude of 15 to 25 kilometers and the exo-atmospheric missile can kill an incoming ballistic missile within the range of 2000km. DRDO has claimed that the strike range of the exo-atmospheric missile is being upgraded to 5000 km.


Decided to look up these places on google. What on earth is this at 27.510885, 76.666088?

This will give the interceptors located near Delhi and Mumbai lots of time to work out intercept vectors. Probably aided by radar sites near the cities as well.

Eventually if India is able to customize and integrate the Russian long range S400 system interceptors, which are being negotiated? and base them near the Pakistan border, it will provide India a triple layer defence i.e. boost phase and two terminal phase layers.

Added later: Sorry, checked the map, Alwar is about 100-120 kms south of the NCR and the site is designed to detect Pakistani missiles launched towards Northern India, especially Delhi. Pali also in Rajasthan is located such that it can detect all launches made from Central and Southern Pakistan and heading towards Mumbai and other places further south. So at this point in time it will be a 2 layer terminal phase interception i.e. exo and endo atmospheric which is what DRDO has been testing all these years. The location of these two sites indicates that the radars are capable of looking deep into Pakistan for missile launches, probably with maximum ranges of 600-800 kms, maybe more.


It is quite interesting scenario, radar placed at alwar and pali with old range of 600km still able to cover almost all of pakistan and if we place S400 interceptors or ABM of 300-400 km range , then we might able to intercepts their BMs at boost phase, not sure it is technically viable or not. But we can be sure of one thing with this configuration that PAF will be grounded as they will be target practice just after takeoff.

You cannot take an advertised range of a missile and attribute that range to a ballistic missile intercept. Often, unless you are dealing with pure ballistic missile interceptors, the envelopes against ballistic missiles is significantly smaller compared to the overall advertised range which is often the maximum state against an ABT.

Katare wrote:For 25 km altitude how far can you put it from where the missile is going to land? I thought all SAM provide a bubble of protection zone around target. So best place for the SAM is right at the target so it should be same for the anti-ballistic missiles. I can't understand how it would work from interceptor range POV? Interception point would depend on the range and altitude capability of the interceptor. We know the altitude is 25 km (0r 100km) not sure of the range but assuming very high speed and short reaction time avilable it can't be more than 2 to 3x of the altitude? What am i missing


These are variable and depends upon a lot of external and internal (to the system) factors. Ballistic Missile envelopes depend upon interceptor performance against a given threat which in this case is an incoming warhead. Generally the higher the altitude for the intercept the faster the warhead is traveling. So you need both the ballistic missile class and interceptor performance data. There are very few wide area Anti TBM systems out there that can still do the lower half of endo. It will require a fairly large interceptor as you need to cover both altitude and travel down range to execute the intercept.

Yes I agree, but with current set up, which can be further upgraded to Radar of 1500Km range, interceptors of phase II, S-500 etc and other command and control in coming decade. Would it be possible for us to intercept Paki BMs at boost phase.

Depends upon the physics of BPI given various scenarios and the ability of the interceptors to get to a PIP in time.

Nice explanation. But in our case of Indo-pak, Pakistan have MRBMs except Shaheen I and due to lack of depth launcher will be in the range of ~200KM. Now if we have the interceptor of speed of 4-5Km/sec it can cover the required distance in 60-80 sec , should be enough, but certainly it will require impeccable C4ISR structure in place.

The shorter the missile (range) the smaller the Boost Phase as well so under some instances you will require an even faster interceptor. BPI is very hard and very expensive to execute against a range of threats. There is a reason why the KEI looked and was sized the way it was. By adding distance you can complicate the problem significantly and launching from mobile, relocatable launchers allow for that. A 100-200 km additional separation between the two launchers SIGNIFICANTLY impacts interceptor performance requirements.

a layman question..Does this BMD infra at Pali ..Alwar add to the AD network? or its just to handle missiles?

Why not? A radar will detect both aircraft as well as missiles. So definitely this system will be used for AD purpose as well

Vietnam confirms purchase of cruise missiles from India

Vietnam's government has confirmed it has taken delivery of a batch of short-range ramjet supersonic cruise missiles from India.

Foreign ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said at a press briefing on Thursday that Vietnam is developing defense cooperation with India to allow the country to pursue its defense policies.

“The arms purchase is in line with Vietnam’s peaceful national defense policies aimed at protecting the country,” Hang said.


If we read between the lines. Brahmos cant be exported to any nation if India or Russia does not agree. It means sale of Brahmos to Vietnam has Russia's blessings, and Russia does not want to be a Chinese pet, and has disagreements on geopolitical issues. Only time will tell exactly "what."

That report has been modified. The delivery hasn't been confirmed by official sources (Indian Govt or Vietnam Govt)

NDTV Vishnu SOm is saying Vietnamese have confirmed

http://www.ndtv.com/india-news/indias-new-move-with-brahmos-cruise-missile-likely-to-anger-china-1739183

Senior Vietnamese journalists have indicated to NDTV that the first batch of missiles arrived a few days ago.


I dont think India or Vietnam want to make a public song or dance about this.

https://swarajyamag.com/insta/india-ups-the-ante-amid-rising-tensions-supplies-brahmos-missiles-to-chinas-arch-rival-vietnam

Vietnam's Foreign Office- neither confirm nor deny

http://www.mofa.gov.vn/en/tt_baochi/pbnfn/ns170818145944

It has been on the international news that Viet Nam just received some Brahmos missiles from India. Could you please confirm that information?

The Viet Nam – India Comprehensive Strategic Partnership has been actively developing in many fields, economics, trade, investment, culture, education, security and defense. The bilateral security and defense ties have been making practical contribution to peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world at large.
It should be emphasized that Viet Nam persistently pursues a national defense policy of peace and of self-defense. Procurement of defense equipment by Viet Nam is consistent with the policy of peace and self-defense and is the normal practice in the national defense.
We will forward your question to the relevant agency.

You become miltarily powerful enough with proper MIC and weaponry, people will respect you. That will take Govt atleast 15 years. Not a Govt which army to keep 1 hand behind its back and not respond to ceasefire violations, and wants to make LOC, LAC and withdraw from your own land in the name of peace parks.

Unless I'm reading this wrong NDTV could only confirm a Vietnamese purchase with Vietnamese journalists and not their Foreign or Defense ministries.

Just talks, no sale of BrahMos cruise missiles to Vietnam: MEA
New Delhi: India on Friday refuted reports that Vietnam had acquired BrahMos supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles from India.

Addressing the weekly MEA briefing, spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said, “Vietnam has clarified that their spokesperson did not confirm the sale but had just talked about defence and strategic relations.”

Earlier, Vietnam Foreign Ministry said the country was persistent in pursuing the national defence policy of peace and self-defence.

Terming it as a normal defence practice, Vietnam Foreign Ministry maintained that the procurement of defence equipment was consistent with the policy of peace and self-defence.

The Nehru-Gandhi-MMS era dhoti shivering MEA official's and advisers should be kicked out and Modi chaap guys should be brought in to unequivocally convey to the chini lizards that Brahmos sale to Vietnam is just desserts for the numerous Ding-Dong missile sales to Pakistan.
Such non-confident behaviour does not suit India's emerging profile as the whole world is witnessing our MEA's defeatist attitude. Aack Thoo on the outdated Nehru-Gandhi-MMS doctrine and its servile adherents.

the entire IFS needs to be probed and partially disbanded. stuffed full of IG/JLN bhakts.
