    India on Monday successfully test-fired 1,000 km strike range sub-sonic cruise missile 'Nirbhay' off the coast of Odisha. Developed by Bengaluru-based Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE), a lab under Defence Research and Development Organisation, Nirbhay is a long range, all-weather missile that can be launched from multiple platforms. This sub-sonic cruise missile is capable of carrying conventional and nuclear warheads.

    Powered by a solid rocket booster for take off, once Nirbhay reaches the required velocity and height, its further propulsion is managed by a Turbofan engine. An inertial navigation system developed by Research Center Imarat (RCI) gudies this missile, while a radio altimeter is used for height determination.

    Nirbhay is equipped with a Ring Laser Gyroscope (RLG) based guidance, control and navigation system. It also comes with a MEMS based Inertial Navigation System (INS) and the GPS system. Measuring 6 metres, the width of Nirbhay missile is 0.52 metres and it has a wing span of 2.7 metres. The weight of this missile is about 1500kg. Experts maintain that Nirbhaya can deliver 24 different types of warheads depending on mission requirements.

    The missile has a loitering capability, which allows it to go round a target and perform several manoeuvres and then re-engage it successfully. The Nirbhay missile can select a target among multiple targets and then attack it.The two side wings of Nirbhay missile allows it to fly at different altitudes ranging from 100 m to 4 km above the ground. In times of need, this sub-sonic missile can also fly at low altitudes to avoid detection by enemy radar.

    The Nirbhay missle will supplement the role played by Brahmos missile for the armed forces in due course of time by delivering warheads farther than Brahsmos range of 450 km.

    Nirbhay is indigenous missile. Read history, they are working on this project from 10 years, even launching vehicle is also developed by tata,1st missile was tested in 2012, but after unsuccessful attempts they achieved successful results.
    U.S.A is not ally of India, it just looks it's own interest. U.S.A , Israel has nothing to do with with Nirbhay cruise missile.

    Why do these Articles on Indian Weapons give so much minute details regarding the system that are generally kept confidential by other countries.
    Are these Specs simply given by the officials to public domains like this in India? Or most of these details are just Educated Guess of EXPERTS? Anyone from India will please elaborate?

    Yeah... by dropping some in intact condition...

    Do you know that even we Indians hate the way in which the minor details are PUBLISHED/DISCUSSED BY THE AGENCIES LIKE DRDO, HAL...

    I feel amazed when GOVERNMENT AGENCIES put the details in front of world and did not let anything for the SPY AGENCIES to work on...

    They start blabbering about every thing... even if it is on drawing board... They mostly fall for the defence journalists...

    It was well known in India that Tejas MK2 will be a bigger jet with canard even before the AeroIndia...

    Every cruise missile have...

    I would not agree to that, it's the general speculation on the machine and weapons that is made public. Like it's a cruise missile/1000 km range (this actually varies with warhead) onboarding systems. It's very generic.

    Hmm it is, but back in 70s us favoured China alot. And it doesn't, USA is very far sighted bro they only and only care for themselves and that is it. Right now it might seem that they favour India but in reality they want to keep India in check at all times and bring down Russia further on their knees only to remain superpower for next 200 years atleaat

    It flew at an altitude of 5 meters for 10 minutes and passed through all pre designated way point during the flight.

    And Pakistan flourished after Nawaz wa replaced by Imran Khan.
