War hysteric India test fires SMART missile defence
*New Delhi: *India successfully flight-tested its indigenously developed Supersonic Missile Assisted Release of Torpedo (SMART) system from Odisha's Balasore coast on Monday (October 5).
The SMART was tested at 1145 hours from the APJ Abdul Kalam Island, earlier known as Wheeler Island, off the Odisha coast. It met all the objectives "flawlessly".
The DRDO reportedly said that it will be a "game-changer" in anti-submarine warfare, marking yet another milestone in strengthening the country's maritime strategic capabilities.
According to a defence statement, SMART is a missile assisted release of lightweight anti-submarine torpedo system for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) operations far beyond the torpedo range.
This launch and demonstration are significant in establishing anti-submarine warfare capabilities, it said.
