We are slowly getting confirmation that the Akash launcher also has a TELAR configuration, not just a TEL configuration. Probably doesn't even have a TEL.

It was speculated to be a TELAR earlier, but we didn't see the side radars. Now we need to see if it has a radar at the back as well.

It looks like answers are coming.
It's more compact than mrsam

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) conducted a successful flight-test of New Generation Akash (Akash-NG) missile from Integrated Test Range, Chandipur off the coast of Odisha at 1145 hrs on July 23, 2021. The test was carried out against a high-speed unmanned aerial target which was successfully intercepted by the missile. The flight test has validated the functioning of complete weapon system consisting of the missile with indigenously developed RF Seeker, Launcher, Multi-Function Radar and Command, Control & Communication system. The test was carried out amidst inclement weather conditions proving the all-weather capability of the weapon system.







The system performance was validated through the data captured by a number of Radar, Telemetry and Electro Optical Tracking systems deployed by ITR, Chandipur. A team of Indian Air Force Officers witnessed the test.




On July 21, 2021, the missile was successfully flight-tested without seeker meeting all the mission requirements.

Such a weird TELAR design. But, with the first image, we seem to have confirmation that it has 4 arrays for 360 deg capability.
