India Test-Fires Nuclear-Capable Hypersonic Missile As Border Tensions Rise

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

For decades, India has feared a multi-front war with China and Pakistan. By modernizing its military, along with investments in nuclear weapons and hypersonic missiles, New Delhi could be on a pathway to deter or manage conflict with either one of its nuclear-armed neighbors.

In what appears to be the second hypersonic missile test in weeks, India successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear-capable hypersonic missile dubbed “Shaurya,” defense sources told Hindustan Times.

“The surface-to-surface tactical missile was blasted off from a canister strapped to the ground launcher from launch complex 4 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) in the APJ Abdul Kalam Island around 12.10 pm and covered the desired range,” the source said.

The state-of-the-art missile, with speeds of March 7.5 (5,754 mph), was able to conduct a “maneuver” at the “closing stages of its flight before striking a predefined target in the Bay of Bengal.

A Defence Research and Development Organisation official said Shaurya is one of the top ten missiles in the world “with high-performance navigation and guidance systems, efficient propulsion systems, sophisticated control technologies and canisterised launch.”

The missile can be launched from canisters mounted on a truck or from missile silos buried deep underground. The source said the missile could easily be transported by truck, allowing the mobile platform to continually be moved and making it harder for China or Pakistan to detect them with satellite imaging.

The New Indian Express said, “the missile is capable of deceiving enemy radar aims to give India more options to hit back, in case it is attacked with nuclear weapons.”

Just weeks ago, India “successfully” test-fired a Hypersonic Technology Demonstrator Vehicle that was capable of hitting speeds over Mach 6 (4,600 mph).

The early September launch came as India and China have been locked in a military standoff along the Line of Actual Control, a 2,175 mile disputed border between both countries, that stretches from the Ladakh region in the north to the Indian state of Sikkim.

In terms of geopolitical instabilities, the world is focused on the developments surrounding the Armenian-Azerbaijan war, but a close eye should also be kept on the Sino-Indian border.

Indian needs food and toilet for rocket to take off.

Very gd qn, all nuclear capable missiles & ICBM of US, Russia and China look fat with huge cone head, only Indian’s look thin with sharpen head that won’t have high propelling power for far distance nor sufficient space for nuke warheads.

India is a toxic cancer menace of mankind and world peace. Russian has equipped Indians with nuke, hypersonic missiles, nuclear submarines, etc., they will get a taste of it when US turned India against Russia after bringing down China.

India invaded every single neighbors since gaining independent 1947 tell voluminous of its imperialism and expansionary ambitious like its colonial master and founder Brits Raj.

These 1% Indian elites who called themselves high caste ariyan that enslave/control 99% India poors and low caste are part of London’s jews-anglosaxon axis aka (Sassoon, Myers, Rothschild, Rockefeller, Goldman, Morgan, etc.) that help Brits Raj to conquer & enslave huge Indian continent for 200yrs.

Jews cabal is incorporating India as canon fodder to fight China to last Indian, so to prolong jews’ global monopoly control. That’s how so many aveIQ75 Indians are suddenly installed as CEO of West Corps to prop India up. But Indians will ruin everything they touched.

This is real India like, world’s largest shithole, that the West MSM is trying to conceal and beautify to make us believe its a next benign superpower. Visit India or at least Google, watch some youtude to get a life shock how bad India can be as the West painted rising “superpower”.

Jews cabal won’t permit any nation from rising to challenge their hegemony. They staged WWI/2 to destroy Germany, sunk UK empire, control US, crush Japan rise, disintegrate Soviet,…

Jews cabals are not ready to discard US as its parasite host in a MAD war with China, so India is used as cowdung to destroy China rise.
