BMD radar complex, wonder how much is the range.
Range should be above 1500kms or even more than that. Also, despite the above it's amazing that some people still don't believe that Phase 1 is operational, lol.BMD radar complex, wonder how much is the range.
So, AD-2 won't have any ground based launchers
Exactly. US has both Naval plus Ground based BMD systems. Our Ad-1 and AD-2 should also be both ground and ship based. Only making it Navy specific doesn't make any sense, IMO.Maybe the Cmdr was saying from naval use pov, I mean its very hard to consider DRDO making only naval launch of AD-2 when we face that threat from the east exclusively. If exo-atmospheric ICBMs are needed to be shot down it will almost certainly come from both the eastern part & chinese subs maybe?
It's definitely the case. There is no real requirement to have this on most ships.It is just my hunch but I think all the P-15A/B and P-17A/AU will only get the Program LRSAM missiles coupled with MRSAM to provide 2-layered protection .
While the NGD will form and provide the naval BMD network.
There is a higher chance that we will be having dedicated BMD vessels in form of NGD.
Yes very much. Remember that survey ship launched last year? This was in the making for a pretty longtime. The very first BMD idea was to have it on land and also sea. Next stage is space based laser BMD mounted on RLV.
