Cold Launch from the canister!
Mounted on a BEMLTatra 12*12 High Mobility vehicle
The canvas cover seem to be on some sort of telescoping mechanism, good for prying eyes
Even the Army's Barak-8 launcher is great, keeps a very low profile

Bharat Dynamics Ltd (BDL) delivered the first sets of MR-SAM missiles to the IAF

BDL flags off MR-SAM for delivery to IAF

The first missile of the first firing unit of the Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM) was flagged off for delivery to the Indian Air Force from Bharat Dynamics Ltd's (BDL) Kanchanbagh unit in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

BDL has already completed its Navy order, and now both the Army and Air Force programmes are moving simultaneously.

The MRSAM is a high response, quick reaction, vertically launched supersonic missile, designed to neutralize enemy aerial threats. These threats include missiles, aircraft, guided bombs and helicopters. The missile has a range of up to 70 km and will be used by the Army, Navy and Air Force in different variants.

The missile system can provide point and area defence against various aerial targets including fighter aircraft, subsonic and supersonic cruise missiles.

The missile is powered by an indigenously developed dual-pulse rocket motor and a dual control system to impart the required maneuverability at the terminal phase.

This state-of-the-art weapon system has been designed with active radio frequency seeker to identify, track, engage and destroy the target with high kill probability.

BDL also aims to supply air-to-air missiles, anti-tank guided missiles, underwater weapons and counter measure systems in addition to Akash missiles to friendly countries.

Agni Prime test fired!
Classed by DRDO as a new generation missile.
Will replace the Agni1/2 in service since the late 90s

Canisterized and mounted on a Tatra/BEML High Mobility Vehicle
One of the rough guess to have an idea of power of motor is the length of the flame. Look at Agni II prime flame. It is almost 3 times the length of missile.More over the motor is made of composite. Light motor with very high power gives exceptional speed and velocity. A Chinese high ranked military official said that Agni prime is such a potent missile system that it can be used as a carrier killer.
Looks like the Agni 5 is in serial production

ASRAAM missiles to be built in India by Bharat Dynamics Ltd (BDL) in a JV with MBDA.

Looks like the ASRAAM is confirmed as the replacement for the R-73E on several types including Su-30MKI, MiG-29UPG, Tejas and going ahead maybe even the Rafale.

BDL ties up with MBDA to make ASRAAM missiles

Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) and MBDA of United Kingdom (UK) have signed a licensing agreement to establish a facility for the Final Assembly, Integration and Test (FAIT) of Advanced Short Range Air-to-Air Missile (ASRAAM) missiles in India on Tuesday.

The agreement was signed by BDL director (Technical) NP Diwakar and MBDA international cooperation director George Kyriakides in the presence of Commodore Siddharth Mishra (Retd), BDL’s chairman & managing director at a virtual ceremony along with director (production) P. Radhakrishna, director (finance) N. Srinivasulu, and others.

Under the agreement, MBDA will transfer the equipment and knowledge to BDL for establishing the facility expected to commence operations by 2022-23. Commodore Siddharth Mishra (Retd), CMD, BDL stated that signing of the licencing agreement reinforces the BDL’s commitment to contribute towards ‘Make in India’ and the ‘Atmanirbhar’ initiatives in the defence sector.

This pact is part of BDL’s endeavours to enter into tie-up with foreign OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) in pursuit of its expansion programme, he said. ASRAAM is one of the ‘within visual range’ missiles available and BDL will be manufacturing these at its Bhanur unit in Telangana for domestic and export purposes through MBDA. The new facility will provide India with the ability to carry out final assembly, integration and test of ASRAAM missiles.


This new generation close combat missile with its low drag, aerodynamic airframe, unrivalled speed and manoeuvrability throughout its flight along with increased agility makes it the best missile in its category of weapons. The missile has full ‘Lock On Before Launch’ and ‘Lock On After Launch’ operating modes, a press release said.


“We are very pleased to be establishing this new ASRAAM facility with BDL. MBDA has a long and highly successful history of working with it for over four decades where a large number of MBDA-designed Milan missiles were made here,” said Mr. George Kyriakides.

The new BDL ASRAAM facility will have the potential to also conduct maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) of missiles.
It can also be adapted to conduct final assembly, integration and test of the CAMM missile of MBDA. CAMM is the missile used by the Sea Ceptor naval air defence system that has been offered as Short Range Surface to Air Missile (SRSAM) requirement.

So confirmation of MIRV on the Agni Prime out!
And some really impressive news on the "User Trials" of the Agni V Intercontinental Ballistic Missile
The mission has been planned close on the heels of the successful trial of Agni Prime missile, the first of the new class of Agni series of missiles, developed by DRDO. The three-stage solid-fuelled weapon with advanced guidance and new generation propulsion was fired with multiple independently targetable reentry warheads on June 28.
Defence sources said the next trial of Agni-V missile assumes significance as it may be equipped with the MIRV capable of carrying multiple warheads. Though the MIRV capability of the missile was secretly tested during a multi-satellite launch, no live launch has been conducted so far. “For the first time, the indigenous MIRV technology was tested successfully in Agni P missile with the weapon delivering two manoeuvrable warheads at two separate locations. The MIRV capability of Agni-V will give India the much needed deterrence,” said the sources.

Great graphic shared by twitter user @detresfa_ on the relevant NOTAM
Fairly confident the advanced Ballistic Missile tracking vessel INS Dhruv inducted days before into the service will play an active role

Now land based Deterrence component is very credible, focus on the underwater based deterrence will be interesting in the years ahead
Report from a few months back mentioned that after the S3( The Arighat) next boats will effectively double the missiles carried.

Indian media has quacks in their defence reporting. Except for Shiv Aroor in India today/Livefist and to an extent Sandeep Unnidhan and Vishnu Som most of garbage vomit types.

Agni 5 user trials is the one planned. This will be standalone test by SFC without any assistance from DRDO. Last time SFC did 3 test in 2018 with user assistance from DRDO. So I highly doubt MIRV is currently being tested on A5.
