This test verifies the capability to engage anti-ship missiles, which was jointly designed by the DRDO and Israel Aerospace Industries and made by Bharat Dynamic Ltd. With a range of 70 kilometres, the MRSAM is capable of destroying enemy aircraft, cruise missiles, helicopters, and drones. Under the three cooperative projects signed by DRDO and Israel Aerospace Industries at an initial cost of more than Rs 30,000 crore, the Army, Navy, and Indian Air Force would introduce MRSAMs on the newest Barak 8 systems. The supersonic Brahmos missile was successfully fired from the Arabian Sea earlier on March 5 during a test by the Indian Navy. The indigenous seekers and boosters were present in the ship-launched Brahmos.
The Indian and Air Forces deploy a cutting-edge network-centric combat air defence system called MRSAM. It has a range of 70 kilometres and can destroy a variety of airborne targets, including drones, helicopters, aircraft, and approaching missiles. The missile kit or mid-section refers to the frontal end of the missile, which houses the seeker and other crucial electronics. The first deliverable firing unit (FU) of the Medium Range Surface-to-Air Missile (MRSAM) was given to the Indian Air Force on September 9, 2021, at the Air Force Station in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan, in an effort to significantly improve India's defence capabilities. Developed in collaboration, the MRSAM IAF is a cutting-edge network-centric combat air defence system. Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), the Defense Research and Development Office (DRDO), and the Indian industry, which consists of both the private and public sectors, including MSMEs. A press release from the Indian public and private defence industry partners, including MSMEs, stated that the MRSAM weapon system, also known as the "Abhra" weapon system, is a cutting-edge medium-range air defence weapon system. It is a joint venture between the DRDO and Israeli Aerospace Industries (IAI). According to ANI, GOC-in-C of the Eastern Command Lt. General R P Kalita underlined to the MRSAM Regiment that India's defence sector has made great progress towards indigenization and that the nation would soon attain self-sufficiency in defence production.
