Missile System of India: Range, Type and Capabilities| Full Details

Missile System of India:  Defence knowledge plays a crucial role in every defence examination. Defence aspirants must have knowledge about defence equipment and recent happenings.  In this article, we have provided the in-depth knowledge about the missile system of India. In military language, the definition of the missile is a weapon which is a guided self-propelled flying weapon usually propelled by rocket motor or fighter jet engine.

Missile System of India: Range, Type and Capabilities

  • Surface-to-Surface Missile: A surface-to-surface missile is a guided projectile launched from a handheld, vehicle mounted, trailer mounted or fixed installation. It is often powered by a rocket motor or sometimes fired by an explosive charge since the launch platform is stationary.
  • Surface-to-Air Missile: A surface-to-air missile is designed for launch from the ground to destroy aerial targets like aircrafts, helicopters and even ballistic missiles. These missiles are generally called air defence systems as they defend any aerial attacks by the enemy.
  • Surface (Coast)-to-Sea Missile: A surface (coast)-to-sea missile is designed to be launched from land to ship in the sea as targets.
  • Air-to-Air Missile:An air-to-air missile is launched from an aircraft to destroy the enemy aircraft. The missile flies at a speed of 4 Mach.
  • Air-to-Surface Missile:An air-to-surface missile is designed for launch from military aircraft and strikes ground targets on land, at sea or both. The missiles are basically guided via laser guidance, infrared guidance and optical guidance or via GPS signals. The type of guidance depends on the type of target.
  • Sea-to-Sea Missile:A sea-to-sea missile is designed for launch from one ship to another ship.
  • Sea-to-Surface (Coast) Missile:A sea-to-surface missile is designed for launch from ship to land based targets.
  • Anti-Tank Missile: An anti-tank missile is a guided missile primarily designed to hit and destroy heavily armoured tanks and other armoured fighting vehicles. Antitank missiles could be launched from aircraft, helicopters, tanks and also from shoulder mounted launcher.

SLBM: Sub-marine launched ballistic missile

Missile Features
Astra Astra is a beyond-visual-range (BVR) air-to-air missile (AAM).In terms of size and weight, the Astra is the smallest missile developed by the DRDO.It was envisaged to intercept and destroy enemy aircraft at supersonic speeds.
Trishul Used as anti-sea skimmer (to fly low to avoid radar) from ships against low-flying attacks.
Akash It has the capability to “neutralize aerial targets like fighter jets, cruise missiles and air-to-surface missiles” as well as ballistic missiles.
PAD Anti-ballistic missile developed to intercept incoming ballistic missiles outside the atmosphere (exo-atmospheric).
Nag 3rd generation anti-tank ‘fire and forget’ guided missile (lock-on before launch system) where the target is identified and designated before the weapon is launched.
Prahaar High manoeuvrability.Primarily a battlefield support system for the Army.
BrahMos It is a supersonic cruise missile developed as a joint venture between Indian and Russia.It is the fastest supersonic cruise missile in the world.It is the world’s fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation.
Nirbhay Subsonic missile which is ancillary (providing necessary support) to the BrahMos range.
K-15 Sagarika It forms the crucial third leg of India’s nuclear deterrent vis-à-vis its submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) capability.It was subsequently integrated with India’s nuclear-powered Arihant class submarine.
Dhanush It is capable of carrying nuclear warheads.It carries forward the legacy of the K-15 Sagarika.
Shaurya Surface-to-surface ballistic missile (SSM) variant of the K-15 Sagarika.The nuclear capability of the missile enhances India’s second-strike capability.It reduces the dependence on the K-15 which was built with Russian assistance.

Government of NCT of Delhi (Amendment) Bill 2021: All you Need to Know

Government of NCT of Delhi (Amendment) Bill 2021: Recently, the central government introduced the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021 in the Lok Sabha to amend the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi Act, 1991. The Government of  NCT of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021 proposes to amend Sections 21, 24, 33 and 44 of the 1991 Act. In this Article we have explained in detail about this bill, what are its implications and how it would be affecting the Government of NCT of Delhi.

Government of NCT of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021

  • Section 44 of the 1991 Act says that all executive actions of the L-G,
    whether taken on the advice of his Ministers or otherwise, shall be
    expressed to be taken in the name of the L-G.
  • The Bill gives discretionary powers to the L-G even in matters where
    the Legislative Assembly of Delhi is empowered to make laws.
  • The proposed legislation also seeks to ensure that the L-G is “necessarily
    granted an opportunity” to give her or his opinion before any decision
    taken by the Council of Ministers (or the Delhi Cabinet) is implemented.
  • Delhi is a Union Territory with a legislature and it came into being in
    1991 under Article 239AA of the Constitution inserted by the
    Constitution (Sixty-ninth Amendment) Act, 1991.

What’s the issue now?

  • The Bill has revived the dispute on the distribution of powers
    between the elected government and the Lieutenant Governor (L-
    G).
  • The Supreme Court too had intervened in the matter and delivered
    its verdict in 2018.

Supreme Court’s 2018 verdict:

  • L-G’s concurrence is not required on issues other than police, public
    order and land.
  • Decisions of the Council of Ministers will, however, have to be
    communicated to the L-G.
  • The L-G was bound by the aid and advice of the council of
    ministers.
  • The status of the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi is not that of a
    Governor of a State, rather he remains an Administrator, in a
    limited sense, working with the designation of Lieutenant Governor.

How will this bill effect the power of Delhi Government?

 

  • By making it mandatory for the elected government to route all its files through the L-G, the amendments will essentially take away the government’s autonomy and the dream for full statehood for the state.
  • This will revive the dispute on the distribution of powers between the elected government and the Lieutenant Governor (L-G).

India Secretly Commissions VC11184 ocean surveillance ship: Key Points

India Secretly Commissions VC11184 ocean surveillance ship: India has unobtrusively commissioned its clandestine atomic rocket following vessel that had been under development since 2014, entering a select class of countries with the ability to screen rocket dispatches at significant distances, upgrading the testing program and adding a urgent part to a public rocket guard framework.

The VC11184 sea observation transport, just four different countries work comparative vessels  will be worked by a joint team of the National Technical Research Organization (NTRO), the Defense Research and Development Organization and the Indian Navy.

India Secretly Commissions VC11184 ocean surveillance ship

As of now, just the US, France, China and Russia work comparable vessels that are utilized to follow rocket dispatches adrift. The vessel will actually want to screen India’s formative preliminaries of rockets of more prominent reach than any time in recent memory, giving undeniable degree of safety at its oceanic lines.

Also, it will can recognize dispatches by enemies like Pakistan and China, giving India an early admonition capacity. The 15,000 ton transport, which has particular reconnaissance frameworks of three arch formed radio wires loaded with sensors, has been broadly tried since 2018 by the joint group.

As announced by ET, the intricate vessel will create more than 14 MW of force just to control up its following radars, which will have various parts from following foe rockets to precisely giving information on tests that are regularly done of native vital rockets.

The 15,000 ton class vessel was at first developed in a covered dry harbor at the Hindustan Shipyard Ltd, the nation’s biggest, to continue meandering satellites and spying endeavors under control. Be that as it may, since 2018 the vessel has been docked in the open, with its enormous globe molded radar set on the toward the back giving an unmistakable perceivability to guests at Vizag.

The ₹725 crore project is a feature under the Make in India activity, with high mystery being kept up on subtleties, remembering the abilities and frameworks for board. It is additionally perhaps the biggest warship to be worked at an Indian yard.
