    Since it is already presented/ posted by Dr. Pillai more than once in various youtube presentations at colleges and institutions. Its better we should also discuss this here.

    This was done in 1984. Indian minds bridge the gap of 30-40 years, by thinking this.

    Its like prithvi missile launched from Delhi to Mumbai, going through Bhopal to reach Mumbai.

    Rand corporation crying over their inability to intercept HGV in next 10 years, forget that we got 3-4 mach Prithvi doing this in 1984.

    Dont have to tell them what K15 or K4 could do with close to hypersonic or hypersonic speeds. :india:

    K-4, K-15, and planned K-5-6 all are hypersonic ballistic missiles but they never leave earth's atmosphere and further they are fired in depressed trajectory with manoeuvring in terminal phase. Now that is some bigger WTF....:india:

    Prithvi missile was liquid fuel ones in 1984. I can't believe that liquid missiles can do such maneuver

    These big fins in Prithvi severed the same purpose as those big fins on V-2 or any other old liquid missile mainly flying in atmosphere : providing stability during flight!

    Actually, the Prithvi missile was still sitting on the paper, the whole project started 1983.
    The liquid engine for this missile was declared successful in 1986.

    No smoke, have you watched the video, Dr.Pillai was the first CEO of Brahmos.
    He was instrumental in making Brahmos what it is.
    Including Sub launch Brahmos. Thats Indian again Indian tech. As Russians refused to share sub launch tech with us.
    We invested so much that we got different ways of Sub launch systems.

    Liquid fuel cruise missiles can but liquid fuel rockets are not good missiles for accuracy even in ballistic trajectory. Such maneuvers can put off the accuracy badly even if there is a small mistake. Liquid fuel rocket have inherent problems. The mixture of fuel and oxygen is generally unstable and has higher stringent restrictions.

    This is not the case with liquid fuel turbofan or RAMJET (Brahmos) as they intake air from atmosphere

    I have always considered this a big plus point of Indian missile Program. We have a great capability of maneuvering missile on various paths to reach target with a great accuracy. K series is pioneer system in this sort of maneuvers before it hits target with almost ZERO CEP.

    Infact liquid ones are better equipped to do this, as they could do proper control.

    Won't these maneuver require GPS guidance? What if GPS shuts down to ensure that missiles aren't fired from its guidance?

    Absolutely wrong. Liquid fuel missiles are always more accurate because you can control combustion by throttling the fuel flow which you can not do in solid fuel missile. You have to adjust the trajectory with control surface or with TVC mechanism. You can not control combustion like liquid fuel engines.

    Do not mix turbojet and ramjet. They work on different principles.
