Nirbhay : India's first indigenous (self developed) long range sub-sonic cruise missile.


Nirbhay is India's first indigenously designed and developed long range sub-sonic cruise missile, which was successfully tested in October 2014. 'The entire mission, from lift-off till the final splash down was a perfect flight achieving all the mission objectives,' DRDO said.

We take a look at what's special about the sub-sonic missile.

1000 kilometre class cruise missile ::
The cruise missile Nirbhay, is powered by a solid rocket motor booster developed by the Advanced Systems Laboratory (ASL).
The 1000 kilometre class cruise missile with capability to strike deep in to the enemy territory, has been designed and developed by DRDO at its aeronautics R&D laboratory ADE.


Need for a sub-sonic missile ::
According to Ravi Gupta, Director of Public Interface at DRDO, India needs a sub-sonic long-range missile to ensure that it can target deep within the enemy's territory.
'Cruise missiles can fly like an aircraft and take detours. Sub-sonic cruise missiles are able to fly at very low altitudes, close to the earth, without being detected,'.
