The Indian Navy successfully test fires long-range surface-to-air missile, the long-range Barak-8 surface-to-air missile from onboard INS Kolkata on Wednesday.


The Barak-8 missile is being developed in joint collaboration by India and Israel. While two tests had been successfully conducted onboard Israeli ships, this is the first time that the test has been held onboard an Indian one.

The Barak-8 has been designed to defend against a variety of short-to-long-range airborne threats, including fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, drones and projectiles.

It incorporates a state-of-the-art phased array multi- mission radar, two-way data link, and a flexible command and control system that enables it to simultaneously engage multiple targets day and night and in all-weather conditions.

The missile system is being jointly developed by IAI, DRDO, Israel's Administration for the Development of Weapons and Technological Infrastructure, Elta Systems, Rafael and other companies.
