The Indian Air Force has submitted a proposal to the government worth over Rs 1,400 crore for the acquisition of Rudram next-generation anti-radiation missiles (NGARM) to search and destroy enemy radar locations, according to defence officials.

Defence officials said, “A proposal for the acquisition of advanced missiles developed by the Defence Research and Development Organization is with the Defence Ministry, and a high-level meeting will take a decision soon”.

The next-generation anti-radiation missiles, which can destroy enemy radar locations during conflicts, have already been tested by the Indian Air Force using its Sukhoi-30 fighter aircraft fleet.

According to officials, the destruction of radar systems will allow the Indian Air Force to strike targets without being detected.

The NGARM can be fired from IAF fighters such as the Sukhoi-30 and Mirage-2000. It is precise and has been designed to track a radar system even when it is not in use.

NGARM is India’s first indigenously developed anti-radiation missile with a speed of Mach two, or

The tactical air-to-surface anti-radiation missile is outfitted with a passive homing head that detects radiation sources of varying frequencies. It can lock onto a target not only before launch, but also afterward.

The induction of the NGARM would be a significant boost for the Indian Air Force, as it would assist the force in preparing for future wars with indigenous weapon systems.

Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari recently stated that the Indian Air Force would focus on inducting’made in India weapons’ based on lessons learned from the Ukraine-Russia war.
