    India to test fire sub sonic cruise missile Nirbhay on Tuesday

    The much-hyped newly developed subsonic, medium range, cruise missile ‘Nirbhay’ will be test fired from Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur on sea, about 15 kms from here on Tuesday, defence sources said today...

    As a precautionary measure, the villagers residing within the 2 km radius of the the launch complex-III of the ITR will be evacuated. The defence authorities held a meeting with the Balasore administration on Friday last and it was revealed that about
    3284 people, including 698 minors belonging to 453 families, all residents of five villages namely Jaydevkasaba Pahi, Sahaji Nagar Pahi, Luna Pahi, Kusumuli Pahi and Khadu Pahi would be displaced temporarily.

    The displaced villagers would be given accommodation in two temporary shelters. While each adult would be paid Rs 185 for shifting from their houses, the minor would be paid Rs 75. This apart,the authority would also pay compensation for shifting the cattle and domestic livestock.

    Indian Cruise Missile Nirbhay Debut Test Tomorrow?

    by Shiv Aroor

    Speculating on a debut missile launch by DRDO is always a long-drawn gamble, but this could be it for the agency's Tomahawk-like long range cruise missile Nirbhay. With a launch window that opened yesterday off the country's east coast test range, the missile is expected to be test-fired for the first time tomorrow morning.

    Mostly used to a series of ballistic missiles (the BrahMos isn't really Indian is it?), there is a great deal of justified attention in how an indigenous cruise missile programme will acquit itself. The Nirbhay is said to be a 750-1,000 km range weapon system.

    As I've posted here before, the Nirbhay, shrouded in secrecy for long, is understood to be a two-stage high subsonic cruise missile with loitering capabilities. Sources suggest that apart from the engine (apparently supplied by NPO Saturn), the rest of the system is fully indigenous.

    One can assume that this missile has already been tested and tomorrow's test is mere optics for us 'aam junta' :D

    Of course.

    No one can show off a failed missile test in the first go especially when its a cruise missile and not a rocket. Same thing happened with K-15/B05 which have been tested several times before showing off to the public.

    If it can 'drop' bombs then it's an aircraft/drone which looks like a missile, gosh ! I am eager to see its other roles apart from kamikaze.

    It's being done by Tomahawk for a long time.

    It's not that this cannot be done but I don't see any use for it. It will first if all mean a larger missile and larger launchers. We can just fire multiple salvos to do the same thing. The sub munition warhead is an important one which can destroy say a runway and take out the control center.

    It reminds me of the vision of Dr. Abdul Kalam, maybe the plan is not to waste a system worth millions upon a conventional strike or a system which can perform half range requirement in cheap, anyways we should have a first view of the system very soon.

    Less then 14 hours for the launch I suppose :timeout:

    Hypersonic means difficult to manoeuvre and therefore not suitable for recovery and re-use.
