Pritivi Missile Anti Missile System
The Prithvi is a surface-tosurface battle field missile using a single state, twin-engine liquid propulsion system and strap-down inertial guidance with real-time software incorporated in the onboard computer to achieve the desired accuracy during impact. Prithvi demonstrates higher lethal effects as compared to any equivalent class of missiles in the world.
Prithvi could well be termed as a unique missile since it displays manoeuverable trajectory and high level capability with field interchangeable warheads. Its accuracy has been demonstrated in the development flight trials. Flight trails for the air force has been completed and the system is now being configured for launching from ship, thereby increasing its capability as a sea mobile system.
Significant additions also include the Multi-Barrel Rocket System PINAKA, an area weapon system to supplement the existing artillery gun at ranges beyond 30 km, having quick reaction time and high rate of fire has been accepted by the user after extensive trials. BrahMos being jointly developed with Russia, is a supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.
