Indo-Israeli missile successfully test-fired: DRDO chief
"The 70-km missile was fired at an electronic target and met with its initial objectives," India Today quoted DRDO Chief Dr Vijay Saraswat as saying on Friday.
India will conduct the second test of the missile, also called as Barak-2 by next year. The missile will be integrated by Indian technicians.
According to the English daily, the three guided missile destroyer of the Project 15A class will be equipped with the missile after their commission in Indian Navy by 2012.
"We will deliver the system to the armed forces in 2013. I am very confident it will be an astounding success," Dr Saraswat added.
The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) have earlier signed a contract with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) in 2006, to jointly develop a Long Range Surface to Air Missile (LRSAM) system for the Indian and Israeli Navy.
