    CMD is a must have system for us, BMD is definitely not sufficient.

    actually would this forum think that ALL missile systems are of great help to india ? basically they are an automated and relatively lower cost form of defence especially compared to warplanes and especially if they are possess mirv capability

    That's because the Captain of the ship had placed the Barak 1 System on a standby Mode when the Missile hit the ship.

    So IDF states, no one really believes that. Just as when they deny having nukes and refuse to admit bombing Syria.

    Indian Navy had to buy Barak-1 because DO.DO messed up the Trishul project.
    Now Barak-1 will be replaced by DO.DO-MBDA Maitri SR-SAM.

    It was peace time. Was there any prior intimation of such a threat existing?

    Would IN keep Shitl SAM activated when hunting the Pirates? No.

    Peace time my ass... they were in active combat ops against Hezbollah and Mossad knew they had ASMs.

    Would IN keep self-defence turned off going into a combat zone with known threats? Hell No!

    Yes. Anti-Aircraft Guns can be used to take out subsonic cruise missiles esp terrain hugging ones. Its esp useful in mountainous/hilly areas, iirc.
    Set up two AAC guns on opposite sides, and form an arc, it'll act as a wall of steel.
    My very crude graphic illustration.

    For cruise missile defence we have, AAA at the target site, Aircraft to intercept them in flight and Akash and other SAM to get them down. Taking them down is easy part, identification and tracking is difficult part, for this you need Aerostar, AWACs, satellites and nextwork of radars or even human observers acting in network.

    What about Akash missile system can't they take down Enemy Cruise missile , Can Rajendra Radar track Cruise missile effectively?

    And SPYDER SAM is also capable of tackling Cruise missile right? , What about AAD ?

    So u have missile capability , but we lack sophisticated Radars which can track down stealthy low flying cruise missiles

    Correct me if im wrong

    No our radar is good that is not problem, any other radar will have same problem, here this will explain what i am saying.

    [​IMG]

    area in the shadow is the problem, plus land radar looks up, so the cruise missile will be launched in such a way that it will evade the radar by using the shadow area or where the radar coverage is not their, or even terrain hugging missile.
