New Delhi: The Indian Air Force has successfully tested the country’s first indigenously developed anti-radiation missile ‘Rudram-1’. Rudram, developed by DRDO, was launched from a Sukhoi-30 fighter jet. The test was conducted from the testing range at Balasore in Odisha under the leadership of the Air Force. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh lauded the achievement.

It is the first new-generation anti-radiation missile in the country that can detect and quickly destroy enemy radars and surveillance systems. With Rudram-1 becoming part of the Air Force, Indian warplanes will be able to gain more air dominance and strategic capabilities.
