The Barak-8 next generation long range surface to air missile (LR-SAM) being developed and funded jointly by IAI and DRDO, had its first test-flight last fortnight, reports India Today
associate editor Sandeep Unnithan, with a second test to take place at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in India later this year. I had reported
in January about the first impending flight that is reported to have taken place a fortnight ago. My post about the Barak-8 advert is here
, and more impression images of the missile are here
. Unnithan's exclusive interview with DRDO chief VK Saraswat and his piece 'Trimming the Fat'
will be in the June 6 edition of India Today magazine.
