1400km in about an hour equates to 23.33 km/minute or 388 m/sec, I.e slightly above the speed of sound at 320m/sec, begs the question can this baby supercruise?
Keep your adversaries confused, others do it as well. For example we still don't know if the Chinese cj-10 has a range of 1500,2500 or 3000km a decade after it passed IOC.Both Times of India and NDTV report 700km range ... but The Hindu 1,000km, while considering the way points covered, it must be more than 1,000km.
Why the discrepancy?
B: Range upto 300kmGuyz, the difference between nirbhay and brhamos is only target distance. right?
The socialist media is vomiting at this success. The Congressi friendly media outlets are showing disbelief. Nothing else.Both Times of India and NDTV report 700km range ... but The Hindu 1,000km, while considering the way points covered, it must be more than 1,000km.
Why the discrepancy?
It's not a cannister launchI believe this Nibhay was a canister launch. That is an excellent news.
1100 km is an excellent news.
What about under sea launch. The canister launch is synonymous to under sea launch. Can the canister launch be duplicated into undersea launch. These missiles are to be nuclear tipped and launched from a submarine stationed in North eastern Arabian Sea, so as to cover Sargodha Air base, where Pakistan stores its nuclear missiles and other places like Kahuta, ISI headquarters in Rawalpindi etc.
How many Nirbhays, first edition can be delivered to the armed forces in next two years. Three years are too long. First sixteen missiles should go to the Indian nuclear submarine Airihant.
I am proud today.
The test clearly shows a subsonic missile all through its flight range. The rocket is only to clear the launch pad and impart initial velocity.B: Range upto 300km
N: Range upto 1500km
B: Speed upto Mach 3
N: Speed upto Mach 0.8
B: Can do steep dives in top attack, also can do kinetic penetration of hardened structures due to velocity
N: Can loiter on target, dispense multiple sub-munitions/warheads
