    NEW DELHI: 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 said here.

    India developing interceptor missile with 5,000 km range - Times Of India

    Is It possible for India???
    are their any similar systems, Does even S-400 has that Range!!!
    sorry hope not a repost...

    This is like "wet-dream".

    Its good thing to aim high...even if they end up making missile that has half the distance i'll be pleased.

    TOI is a joke,...they are all smoking weeds these days.... these article is also quite old

    India is not developing an interceptor missile that has a range of 5000km itself... but India is developing a interceptor missile that will intercept incoming ballistic missile which has range of 5000 km.

    it is not possible to have interceptor missile of 5000km range itself. the tracking radar cannot scan target that is 5000 km away :)

    TOI has no idea what they are publishing. last time they called russian mil-24 helis as AH-64 apaches.. lmao.

    :)

    This is from 2008 when VK Saraswat was Project Director, Air Defence Wing, DRDO.

    The Hindu News Update Service

    It seems he is talking about the range of incoming missiles rather than that of the interceptor.

    Of course, I don't know about the technical part (like the difference between intercepting a missile with 2.5K range and 5K range); I am only commenting on the "language" and "misinterpretation."

    Likely scenario:
    VKS: "We are developing a missile to intercept missiles with 5K range."
    ToI: "We are developing an interceptor missile with 5K range."

    This could be the part of Indo-US Missile shield deploying in India to save US bases from Iran and NK, and could be part of US encircling the Russia with Defence shield and Countering the China....

    This is just my speculation, its not true, i think India does not have capability to build an 1000km interceptor missile, but when India claimed to build 5000km, i think without any support from any nation, India would never make such a tall claim,

    FYI we are not building any interceptors with that range, Noone has ever claimed other than that retarded author of that article.

    This has already been discussed in ABM thread.

    let me put it in a better way,

    interceptor missile is totally dependent on ground based tracking radars. currently there is no radar in the world that can scan as far as 1000km. so developing an interceptor missile of a range 5000km is totally impossible. we need new level of physics to develop such interceptors.

    if TOI article is true, then

    Interceptor missile fired from delhi will intercept and kill a target that is hovering over harbin city - northern most city of china.

    do you think this is possible :D

    India is creating Rajendra radar which will have 1500 kms range . Xband radar of USA can track upto 4000 kms so can pill box radar of Russia.
    This article is not written properly . What author should have mentioned is that India can track and destroy missile which has 5000kms range . It means missiles which are launched from distance of 5000 kms .

    ok :D i take my words back on radar range :D

    but again, that was not my point.

    what i am trying to explain is; it is practically impossible to develop a interceptor missile that has a range of 5000km itself... but you(india) can develop an interceptor missile that can intercept incoming ballistic missile that has a range of 5000km

    well i'm not an expert, i already stated India does not have a missile to intercept 1K, how can it build 5K missile,
    what i was trying to explain is about if the News article was true!!!
    its just my speculation and not true...

    Its swordfish not rajendra radar.
    India cant track missile launched 5000km range missile now for that we need a new LRTR.

    green pine and his successor super-green pine ( part of arrow 3 development )
    is perfectly capable of tracking any ballistic missile
    the only problem is rang GP has 800 km rang SGP has 1500 km range
    SGP is still undergoing testing in Elta
    by the time GP tracks ICBM it will be in terminal phase and completely unstoppable
    GP good is for scud and shiab attack air defense , but not for tracking Chinese ICBM

    swordfish is GP with some mild Indian contribution
    so stupid generals can claim it's indigenous to make stupid journalists happy/
    in Hebrew the name is אורן אדיר which translates as great pine

    Green pine radar 's detection range is 500 km and super green pine has 900 km range.
    No interceptors from India and Israel can intercept a missile in midcourse phase, All are designed to intercept in terminal phase.
    So far noone has the capability to intercept an ICBM.
    No generals from India has claimed swordfish is indigenous. Its a known fact that swordfish is a derivative of greenpine.

    I think we lag in processor technology area and countries who have no trade embargo from the west can get these technologies easily. However other Transmit Receive modules, signal processing, computers and power supplies in the Radar are Indian and are more rugged.
