Indian forces acquiring ‘Pralay’ ballistic missile

In a major development, the Indian defence forces are going to induct ballistic missiles for tactical operations, as they are all set to place orders for the ‘Pralay‘ ballistic missiles that can hit targets from 150 to 500 km.

Pralay‘ is powered with solid propellant rocket motor with the capability to destroy enemy targets within a range of 150 to 500km. The missile guidance system includes state-of-the-art navigation and integrated avionics.

Pralay is a quasi-ballistic surface-to-surface missile. The advanced missile has been developed in a way such that it can defeat interceptor missiles. It has the ability to change its path after covering a certain range midair.

Sources say that such missiles give a tremendous capability to troops to completely destroy or take out enemy air defence sites or similar high value targets.
