Akash Missiles Destroyed 4 Targets during Air Force Exercise

Astrashakti 2023, a recent exercise held at the Suryalanka Air Force station in Andhra Pradesh, showcased the potency of the indigenous Akash Missile system.

When the Indian Air Force (IAF) conducted the Astrashakti exercise on December 12, one Akash missile system engaged four unmanned aerial targets at the same time.

With only one firing unit and command guidance, India has become the first nation to show that it is capable of firing at four targets at approximately 30 km distances at the same time.

In order to attack defense assets simultaneously from multiple directions, four targets moved into close formation as they approached from the same direction during the exercise.

The Akash firing Unit was deployed with Firing Level Radar (FLR), a Firing Control Center (FCC), two Akash Air Force Launcher (AAFL) launchers having five armed missiles.

The four-target air scenario was updated to a higher echelon (IACCS) after the FLR was identified and tracked.

To eliminate the threat, the targets were given to an Akash firing unit. In addition, the FCC commander issued firing commands and the Akash firing unit assigned the launchers when the system prompted the engagement based on its capabilities. Using two launchers, two Akash missiles were fired, and the next two targets were targeted by the same launcher.

Four missiles in all were launched in a brief period of time, and FLR tracked and directed each missile to its intended target. At their maximum range, which was about 30 km away, all four targets were successfully engaged at the same time.

With over ten years of service in the Armed Forces, protecting Indian skies and ensuring national security, the Akash Missile System is the first indigenous, cutting-edge surface-to-air missile system.
