Defence Minister Arun Jaitley on Monday said the successful test firing of a quick reaction surface-to-air missile paved the way for complete indigenisation of surface-to-air missiles. He complimented the DRDO and said the successful test firing will add to India’s defence capabilities. “The indigenously built Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air (QRSAM) missile, which has a capability of engaging multiple targets, was test-fired from a test range along the Odisha coast on Monday.
“Congratulations to DRDO for successfully test firing Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile. This will add to India’s defence capabilities,” Jaitley tweeted. The missile has a strike range of 25 km to 30 km. Designed to be a quick reaction missile, it involves an all- weather weapon system capable of tracking and firing.
