missile defense system to the year after, the Indian founder to step up to make imaginary Chinese missile test
India’s Defense Research and Development Organization anti-missile defense project leader, said recently, on March 6 for a missile intercept tests showed that India now have the ability to intercept such as Chinese M-9 ballistic missiles with a range of 2,000 km missiles. He even believes that the U.S. Patriot-3 “obsolete”, India’s advanced air defense missiles (AAD) in the distance and the ability to intercept than 30 percent of its location.
blind boast missile performance
6 days, from the Orissa coast of India from about 100 kilometers on a warship fired a modified The “Dhanush” to-surface missiles, used to simulate the “potential enemy missile range of 1,500 kilometers”, then the coastal state of Orissa in India and from the Wheeler Island, launched an interceptor missile, the interceptor missile 75 km over the Bay of Bengal simulated high-altitude missiles will destroy the whole process less than 6 minutes. The interceptor missile by India’s “Earth” missile missiles, an improved two-push, has been named “Michel Turner” missile.
This is India’s missile defense system since the third intercept test. India claimed that the success of the intercept test of ballistic missile defense system in the development of India on the road a big step forward. Indian experts is touted for its ability to intercept.
India’s Defense Research and Development Organization anti-missile defense project leader, said Saraswat 9, December 2006, compared to the test, the interceptor missiles and a 30% increase. He said a number of technical highlights: The missile is equipped with a new type of directed energy warheads, although the new warhead weight only 30 kg, but the blocking effect is equivalent to 150 kilograms of non-directed energy warhead; the system is “automatic” in the activation intercept procedures manual labor is no longer needed, the radar can be found in within 2 minutes of the incoming missile to intercept them; in the process of intercepting missiles flying missiles, the radar base the guidelines can be continuously updated to capture the location of the target missile … …
in Saraswat eyes, such a missile defense system in India is undoubtedly the world’s most advanced anti-missile system. On the one hand he claims that the defense can stop the world’s most sharp “spear”, that is, it can not only intercept the Chinese M-9 missiles, and even the world’s strongest penetration of the Russian Topol-M missiles also mention, Because the interceptor missile’s guidance system makes the new missile can track the incoming missile’s flight path; the other hand, he declared that the defense system performance is better than the world’s most advanced “shield”, not only over the Russian S-300 missile system , but also better than the U.S. “Patriot” -3 defense system. He believes that “Patriot” -3 “obsolete”, India’s advanced air defense missiles (AAD) in the distance and the ability to intercept than 30 percent of its location, because the “Patriot” -3 only has 15 km of interceptor missile distance, while India’s AAD interceptor farther than it can.
imaginary enemy to intercept Pakistan
According to reports, the first phase of India’s anti-missile system will be officially deployed in 2011, before a further right to intercept about 5 missile tests. The first phase of deployment is completed, in order to deal with a range of over 6,000 km ballistic missile, India will launch the second phase of the intercept test.
from this test to simulate enemy missile range of 1,500 kilometers of view, the simulation is no doubt that Pakistan’s high in -1 medium-range ballistic missile Hatf series and M-9 missile in China . High in the missile is Pakistan’s missile technology under the North Korean labor to re-design and development, and its maximum range is 1,500 kilometers, capable of carrying nuclear warheads and conventional high-explosive warhead.
Saraswat said the system can intercept the Chinese M-9 missiles, M-9 DF-15 missile is the export-oriented China, India believes that Pakistan imported from the Chinese M-9 missiles. DF-15 technology is quite advanced, is China’s “trump card” weapons. The head of the missile body separation performance makes it difficult to track enemy radar, missile warheads. It uses terminal guidance technologies have changed the trajectory function, and stealth performance strong.
Indian anti-missile capability really so strong?
missile defense system is complex, a key link in the Indian anti-missile system is not yet mature.
India limited number of ground-based long-range radar, relying on imports from Israel of two “Green Pine” radar, and he had just successfully developed the “Swordfish” long-range tracking radar, its performance has not been tested, but also can not form a network combat power. India does not have day-based radar, which makes India can not implement the initial segment of the incoming missile to intercept incoming missiles can only focus on the middle and re-entry for high, medium and low-altitude interceptor. A missile launched from Pakistan, only five to eight minutes to reach India, which India’s missile interception system to provide response time is very limited.
intercept missiles in the Indian missile used in this test is actually from “Earth” from the surface-modified, although India has improved its, but the missile itself is designed to more primitive, and is not suitable for anti-missile interceptors. And the test is known in India under the block of data, outsiders called the “capricious” and can not test its rapid response capability. As the pilot when preset the type of incoming missiles, ballistic, attack time and combat zone, test results have no real meaning.
U.S. missile defense has been engaged for 20 years, intercept tests many times, the current technology is not yet mature. India’s anti-missile system has experienced only a few years, only the three intercept tests, now known as more than the U.S. anti-missile system, can not help but question. Therefore, some analysts believe that bragging is not the whole letter, believed to be the strategic threats. (High Heaven)
