India developing interceptor missile with 5,000-km range

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, May 15 (PTI): India has started working on a network of air-defence systems which would be able to shoot down any enemy missile even at a distance of 5,000 kms, before it can enter the Indian air space.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has already developed a missile that can intercept an incoming aerial threat 2,000 kms away under the Ballistic Missile Defence (BMD) System and is now working on the second phase.

Under the second phase, missiles are being designed and developed in a manner that would enable them to shoot down any incoming missile at a distance of 5,000 kms, DRDO chief V K Saraswat told PTI here.

The 5,000 kms interceptor missile is targeted to be ready by 2016, he said.

"It is well on schedule and we are already on initial design and testing stage," Saraswat said.
