New Delhi: The Indian Navy on Wednesday announced that tests of the Long Range Surface-to-Air Missile (LR SAM) co-developed with Israel have been successful.

With the successful testing of this missile system, the Indian Navy has become part of a select group of navies that have this niche capability.

 

The missile was test-fired from INS Kolkata along the western seaboard, and the missile successfully intercepted an Aerial Target at extended ranges.

 

This was the maiden firing of the LR SAM, also known as Barak 8, from an Indian ship.
