It may be a cruise missile - which one I am not sure. But the design seems like AA missile.

project devil missile, if i am not misteken it was based on the sa-2 sam

MRUGEN said...

The Missile looks like Soviet made NATO named SA-2 "Guideline" also known as S-75.
It is a Soviet designed high-altitude, command guided, surface-to-air missile (SAM) system. Since its first deployment in 1957, it has become the most widely deployed and used air defense missile in history.

This system first gained fame when an S-75 battery shot down a U-2 overflying the Soviet Union in 1960. Later, North Vietnamese forces used the S-75 extensively during the Vietnam War to defend Hanoi and Haiphong.

some kind of a short range surface to surface missile . it is not a cruise missile since there is no apparent ramjet engine, no sharp intake nose, no streamlined aerodynamics of the extreme kind.

it looks two stage(or awkwardly made ), it has ailerons/ rudders at four places, a sloppy way of guiding it.

yet more strangely it looks like it is a trick photography where two separate pieces are shown as one. if not, then the lower portion pushes the upper to some height before it detaches.(fiction)
unlikely.

screw it,
i don't know.

A decommissioned SA-2 Guideline.

Looks like the information on the boards behind the missiles are blurred.

This is DRDL's project Devil SAM. Later Prithvi missile developed on it.

Ajai saar, what about the F-INSAS pics??

Sid said...

jeez, that's an Old SA-2.

PDV?

A said...

It looks to be LR-SAM missile.

Ricky said...

Its certainly not ASTRA BVRAAM missile because earlier images have defined ASTRA to be a single stage solid propellants fueled missile. Also the wing design is different. It is also not AKASH SAM as the missile have no ramjet propulsoin systems visible.Not AAD also. The missile in the picture is a dual staged missile! But its not BARAK-8. Its some sort of a SAM, I presume. May be the SAM version of ASTRA!!!

Sanket Gokhale said...

It's probably Project Devil Design Missile which was based on Russian SAM S-75 Dvina(NATO: SA-2 Guideline). Its definitely not any new missile, looking at the bracket for actuators on trailing edge control fins. 2 out of 4 fins have these actuators used for roll control.

Dear Colonel,

First of all, heartiest "Greetings and Well Wishes" to You and your family on 64th Independence day.

Reckoning that 64 years is nothing in the profile of a country like India, We have certainly achieved much.

I hazard a guess on the photo you have displayed:

Firstly, It is a missile no doubt.

The Missile is in two parts.

The lower portion is a first stage propulsion. The tanks, that is twin tanks, clearly show use of liquid propulsion.

The venturi and its shape also indicate the same.

The shape shows the the first stage separate having ignited the second stage.

Second stage, as it appears, is solid fuel propellant.

Hence, the first stage propulsion has to be very fast, on predetermined trajectory.
The second stage solid fuel driven trajectory and speed would be a little slower, controllable and maneuverable.

It definitely is an interceptor missile. Intercepting and destroying Ballistics.

Astra??

Broadsword said...

GOLD STAR + BROWNIE POINT GOES TO... SNIPERZ11.

HIS WAS THE FIRST RESPONSE... AND IT WAS CORRECT. THIS IS THE PROJECT DEVIL MISSILE, A SAM WITH MANY FEATURES IN COMMON WITH THE SA-2.

SPECIAL MENTION TO MRUGEN... FOR INTERESTING SNIPPETS ABOUT THE SA-2.

Its an Sa-2 for sure...
