New Delhi: The strength of the Indian Army is going to increase further. Testing of Dhruvastra and Helina Anti-Tank Missile has been completed. Now this missile is fully ready for induction into the army. In the recent test, this missile easily destroyed its target. Soon after successful testing, it can be deployed in army helicopters. Apart from this, it will be used in HAL Rudra and HAL Light Combat helicopters. Let’s know about this missile that will strengthen the Indian Army.
Why Dhruvastra Missile is special
This new missile Dhruvastra of the Indian Army has amazing firepower. The Dhruvastra missile made in India has a speed of 230 meters per second. That means 828 kilometers per hour. Let me tell you that its speed is so that in the blink of an eye, even the biggest heavy tank of the enemy can be destroyed. Dhruvastra ranges from 500 meters to 4 kilometers.
The old name of Dhruvastra missile was Nag missile. Significantly, the army will deploy this Dhruvastra missile in Dhruv helicopter. After being equipped with this missile, Dhruva will turn into a missile attack helicopter. Its capacity has been increased so that the enemy’s sixes can be rescued when needed.
Big achievement for army
The successful testing of the Dhruvastra missile is a major achievement for the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Army. Now India will not have to depend on other countries for anti-tank guided missiles. With this, India has also become self-sufficient in defense.
Fire and forget
DRDO reported that Dhruvastra is a third-generation ‘stain and forget’ anti-tank missile (ATGM) system, which is installed on a new light helicopter. Dhruvastra missile is not dependent on any weather and condition, it is capable of eliminating enemies in every season. Also, it can be stained in day or night.
Best fire missile
The Dhruvastra missile weighs about 45 kg. It is 6 feet one inch long. Its diameter is 7.9 inches. By putting 8 kg of explosives in it, it can be made an excellent fire missile.
All weather capable
The Dhruvastra missile has a heat sensor, infrared homing imaging system and millimeter wave active radar. The heat sensor captures the heat of any tank and determines its direction and kills it. The advantage of infrared imaging is at night and in bad weather. In this way, this example is capable in every season.
Indian Army fully alert
At this time, when there is tension on the border, the Indian Army is fully alert. Also, DRDO is making indigenous missiles to promote Make in India. The country needs weapons that are accurate and cheap. For this, the manufacture of these weapons is necessary in the country itself.
