Bhubaneswar: For the third in two days, India on Friday test fired an Indo-Israeli medium range surface-to-air missile off Odisha`s coast.
“The missile (MR-SAM) was fired from Launch Pad 3 of Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur at 10.26 a.m.”, defence sources said.
On Thursday, the missile was fired from Chandipur twice.
“While the first test was successful, the second missile failed to hit the target”, the sources added.
The missile, which can hit targets within a 70 km radius, is designed to take on any airborne threat apart from aircraft and helicopters.
It can also intercept supersonic aircraft and missiles.
The missile has been jointly developed by Israel Aerospace Industries, India`s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Israel`s Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure.
