Coming Up...

On Monday (Sept 6), I'll be putting up the first ever look at India's low-key Long Range Cruise Missile (LRCM). Over the weekend, posts on the NRUAV programme and the upcoming Agni-II+ test. Stay tuned.

@Shiv

the name is Nirbhay but i am bit confused abt its range, is it 1000 km or 1500 km

Kunal said...

Yes it's Nirbhay. Undeclared range 1500 kms. Nuclear capable. To be mounted on the Su-30MKI Super-30 variant along with the Brahmos.

Shiv, r u reporting( cut and paste) from this website.....Hope u don't.

@kunal

u r a bit wayword, the 40 Su30MKI meant for air launched Brahmos are only meant to carry Brahmos.

The Nirbhay will be attched possibly with Tu142M3 or the P-8 Poseidon that in Indian Navy plans to get in next 3-4 years.

Also the range is possibly more than 1500 km otherwise it wont be called a long range cruise missile.

To joydeep ghosh:

I am not wayword. Plz check Wiki Su-30MKI. It is a combo of 3 Brahmos per MKI Super-30 OR a combo of 1 Brahmos in centerline + 2/? Nirbhay.

Also, yes the known range is 1500 but in actuality it is 1500+. Plz do not forget that missile ranges are a function of mass, i.e. missile mass + fuel mass + warhead mass. So, ranges can be flexible.

@shiv

there is a confusion, will the Nirbhay be attached to Sukhoi alongside air launched Brahmos.
