FIRST VIDEO: Today's Nirbhay Cruise Missile Launch



Here's the official video of today's test of India's Nirbhay ground-launched cruise missile. Details still awaited on all parameters off the test, but it was a strong one. Can confirm that today's test saw very impressive performance on the guidance system (that bedeviled the first test with a gyro glitch), robust navigation through 10 waypoints and performance at maximum range of more than 1,000 km. Better still, the missile is understood to have also been pushed into loiter mode after the seventh waypoint, demonstrating the capability satisfactorily. Great day for the project team and the Advanced Systems Laboratory. More details later.
