The Indian Navy released a video on Thursday depicting one of its frigates’ surface-to-air (SAM) systems engaging a low-flying object in Indian seas and hitting it with pinpoint accuracy. After being launched from a guided missile anti-submarine stealth frigate, the SAM system reached the target with amazing speed, according to the footage.
The missile then lands slightly above the surface on the item. The film opens with a missile launching from its silo and preparing to strike its target. The missile heads to its target after being released, and a boom can be heard just above the sea, confirming that the missile impacted the low-flying object.
“It’s all part of the job!” Watch as Your Navy’s guided-missile anti-submarine stealth frigate does what it does best: successfully attack a low-flying target with her SAM system, reinforcing her crew’s mantra, HIT FIRST! HIT THEM HARD! BZ! Congratulations to the team on a textbook bullseye!” In a tweet, the Indian Navy used the naval radio signal shorthand for Bravo and Zulu, which means “well done” in reference to the acts taken.
The video had been seen over 1,500 times at the time of writing. The Indian Navy puts its armaments to the test on a regular basis in order to upgrade them and project strength where it is needed. It is also adding new ships to its fleet to strengthen it. A naval anti-ship missile was recently tested by the Navy from a naval helicopter off the coast of Odisha.
The test, which took place on May 18 in collaboration with the Defence Research and Development Organisation, was the first for an indigenous air-launched anti-ship missile system for the Indian Navy (DRDO). A Seaking-42B helicopter was used to conduct the test. Surat and Udaygiri, two frontline warships, were delivered to the Navy last week. The ships were launched at Mazagon Docks Ltd in Mumbai by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.
He lauded the naval troops’ actions in support of ‘Atma Nirbharta’ (self-reliance). A frigate’s mission is to protect other fleet ships, merchant marine ships, and other assets at sea from threats such as submarines. As a result, it has a variety of sensors and weapons on board. Modern frigates can also operate in stealth mode.
