India’s successful AAD makes Pakistan’s missile striking capability obsolete

India on Sunday launched successfully test-fired its indigenously developed supersonic interceptor missile, which is capable of bringing down hostile ballistic missiles.
With this latest development, India has become fourth country after US, Russia
and Israel to have successfully developed a ballistic missile defence system beating China in the race to deploy an effective Defence System.
Considered to be an important technological milestone,the indigeneous system will largely negate Pakistan’s strategic striking capability in the country.
The trial on sunday involved the single-stage Ashvin Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile destroying an incoming nuclear-capable Dhanush ballistic missile in mid-air.
Dhanush- a naval variant of the locally designed Prithvi surface-to-surface (SSM) missile was launched from an Indian Navy (IN) warship in the Bay of Bengal, official sources said.
“The ‘kill’ effect of the interceptor was ascertained by analysing data from multiple tracking sources,
The AAD interceptor is a 7.5 metre single-stage solid fuel rocket equipped with a navigation system, a hi-tech computer and an electro-mechanical activator.
The supersonic low-altitude missile weighs around 1.2 tonnes, stands 7.5 meters tall and has a diameter of under 0.5 meters.
The interceptor missile had its own navigation and tracking systems, mobile launchers and sophisticated radars
