India-Israel built missile test-fired

In a major achievement aimed at galvanising its air defence capability, India successfully test-fired two long range surface-to-air missiles (LRSAM), jointly developed with Israel, from a base off the Odisha coast.
The missile was first test launched from a mobile launcher in the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur at around 10.13 hours, while the second LRSAM was test-fired at about 14.25 hours, defence officials said.
In both the tests, the state-of-the-art missiles destroyed the aerial target, he said. Apart from the missile, the system includes a Multi Functional Surveillance and Threat Alert Radar (MF-STAR) for detection, tracking and guidance of the missile, officials said, adding the missile along with MFSTAR would provide users the capability to neutralise aerial threats.
