DRDO, IAF successfully flight-test indigenous long-range bombs

The Research Centre Imarat, a DRDO laboratory in Hyderabad, Telangana, has developed the bomb in coordination with other DRDO laboratories

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Friday successfully -tested an indigenously developed long-range bomb (LRB) from an aerial platform, the ministry of defence said in a statement.

Further, the ministry also said that the LR bomb, after being released from a fighter aircraft of the IAF, was guided to a land-based target at a long-range “with accuracy within specified limits.” The ministry also noted that all the objectives of the mission were successfully met during the test flight.

“All the mission objectives were successfully met. The of the bomb and the performance was monitored by a number of range sensors including Electro-Optical Tracking System (EOTS), Telemetry and radar deployed by the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur in Odisha,” the ministry said.

The Research Centre Imarat (RCI), a DRDO laboratory in Hyderabad, Telangana, has developed the bomb in coordination with other DRDO laboratories. The RCI lab is involved in the research and development (R&D) of avionics systems.

Meanwhile, Union defence minister Rajnath Singh has conveyed his congratulations to the DRDO, the IAF and the other teams involved in the trial flight, the ministry said. Singh said that the feat will prove to be a “force multiplier for the Indian Armed Forces.”

Also, G Satheesh Reddy, chairman of the DRDO, said that the successful test of the indigenously developed LR Bomb has “marked an important milestone” in the indigenous development of this class of weapon systems.

The development came a few days after the country successfully test-fired the Agni-5 missile, from the APJ Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha. The ministry said that the missile was capable of hitting targets at ranges up to 5,000 km “with a very high degree of accuracy.”

The successful test of Agni 5 is in line with India’s stated policy to have ‘credible minimum deterrence’ that underpins the commitment to ‘No First Use’,” the ministry said earlier in a statement.

Sangh parivar collected more than Rs 3,000 crores from Hindus as per media reports & gave that amount to a Sarkari Trust & a Sarkari Construction Committee to construct Ram Janma Bhumi Mandir.

Had Central or State Govt sanctioned Govt funds then they would have deserved credit.
