DRDO Tests India's First Anti-Radiation Missile 🚀

India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) successfully tested the country's first indigenously developed anti-radiation missile, Rudram-2, on Wednesday. The missile's propulsion, control, and guidance systems performed as expected, according to DRDO. The missile was launched from a Su-30 MKI aircraft and travels at twice the speed of sound.

Rudram-2 can destroy enemy radar, communication, and air defense systems. Experts say that Rudram proves India's capability to develop long-range anti-radiation missiles. Three years ago, DRDO tested the first-generation Rudram missile, designed to identify and neutralize radiation-emitting systems.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh expressed his delight over the successful test, calling it a remarkable achievement.
