    Relatively easy to intercept.
    So, entire garbage you have been spilling around pitching for Agni-6.
    Obviously, it can to everyone of them. It's actually only one great power not allowed in security council and lacks efficient military indutrial infrastructure for various reasons.
    Besides all, it's only country who's able to give a serious damage to P5.
    First, wars don't start in a day. Tensions take time to get built and weapons arr tested in between that period. So will be a global range ICBM in case of an Indo US confrontation.

    Moreover, India doesn't need to "develop" but just validate technology. We have all the platforms. Things will take time to escalate to full scale war where countries end up firing nukes at each other. Russia is even doable because of its small population.

    Let's leave India, US is stronger than PRC by many miles when it comes to naval & nuclear strength. But things aren't going to escalate to that level before crossing transition stages where gap between powers of US & China is thin and still is thinning. So is the case at lower extent with India.
    There is no way US will be left without some serious bleeding. I'm wondering, why US doesn't hit Russia, China or India like it hit Iraq & preparing for Iran?
    SSLV
    An Indian equivalent of Minotaur, Start-1 and Kuiazhou.
    Escalation doesn't start with that level. Second, "range of weapon" isn't really a problem. India chose not to test a global range ICBM for diplomatic reasons. There is no way to believe that Indian ICBM at its first attempt will fail despite excellent experience with rocket tech. North Korea with much primitive systems has done that.

    Odisha: India today successfully launched a Technology Demonstrator missile vehicle to prove a number of technologies for futuristic missions. Missile was launched successfully. The missile was test fired using an Agni-series missile off the coast of Balasore

    Mounted on an Agni series #missile, the hyper-sonic technology demonstrator vehicle launched from a defence test facility off #Odisha coast. Data generated during the mission are being analysed. Defence Minister

    Finally we are at the cutting edge of technology right up there in top 2-3.
    Kalams dream is coming true . No more the 6th nation syndrome.

    First ASAT , SFDR and now this hypersonics with scramjet combine with GAGANYAN and Chandra Yan 2 and rejuvenation of mwf and nlca mk2. 10 yrs of Modi and we will finally realize our potential.

    That is what I posted all along. This is what an empowered DRDO looks like. this is what DRDO can deliver with a govt that is determined .

    Mashallah!!!!

    Can't wait for pics. I was waiting for this test for years now. HSDTV based tech will act as a cornerstone of first strike options.

    Chinese drama as usual " India made progress but China far ahead".lol.

    What will happen now of USA attack on India with aircraft carriers Hain ji. Postponed till they find a solution to hypersonics which they themselves don't have operational . Lol.

    DRDO has made good progress in recent months with ASAT Test and now HSTDV ,it is important as the Hypersonic Brahmos might be based on this vehicle,Notam was of 550 KM ,Mach 6 speed these kind of extreme speeds make enemy reaction time very low now eagerly waiting Pralay SRBM test images (90).jpeg

    Last I read about these things I gather.
    A warship with 20 metere high radar can see current bramhos from 27 km away and then has reaction time of about 26 seconds. Bramhos travelles at 2.8 Mach.

    Now hypersonics doubles the speed to 6 Mach but for ease let's take 5.6 Mach.

    For the same warship it will leave only 13 seconds to react.
    Let that sink in 13 seconds!!

    Operational altitude of any HSTDV based missile would be different from BRAHMOS.
    HSTDV is designed to operate at an altitude of 40km. Its our Hypersonic glide vehicle.

    So what will bramhos 2 be ? A glide vehicle ?
    Or a missile with scramjet engine? How does it work out?

    BRAHMOS 2 would be a Scramjet based cruise missile.

    But don't expect it to be as sea skimming as BRAHMOS.

    HSTDV and Brahmos 2 are similar platforms. They both are scramjet powered missile systems. Powered throughout the flight trajectory.

    On the other hand, HGV are an entirely dfferenent concept.. It is released at a very high AL at hypersonic speeds from where it glides towards its target. The vehicle itself is unpowered.


    And Brahmos 2 is nothing but a customised Tsirkon to suit our needs. Tsirkon will enter operational service with the Russian Navy and VKS in the latter half of 2020 or 21.

    Ok. So our shourya missile is also hypersonic when it descends . So that is akin to a HGV?

    Yep. Similar. But our very first HGV would be the Prithvi 1. Back in the days, when hypersonics was still treated as some sort of black magic and the term wasn't being pronounced now and then, Prithvi 1 maneuvered in 3D space. In both X and Y plane.

    The Good lawyer, Mr Sayare had posted a slide on this.
    And I had watched presentations by Dr A Sivathanu Pillai on our missile programs, IGDMP where he vividly portrays this maneuvering capability of the Prithvi missile in the terminal phase. He even says that the Muricans who had monitored these tests had later told him that that the Indians still had a long way to go in the field of ballistic missiles. Prithvi 1's flight trajectory was all wrong.



    We Indians had been a part of the hypersonics club all along. It's just that the world refused to ignore this. We had silently persevered away from all the media limelight and we have emerged victorious.
