Navy Conducts Successful MRSAM Firing From INS Kochi


Kolkata: The Indian Navy on Tuesday conducted successful trial firing of Medium Range Surface to Air Missile (MRSAM) from its front line destroyer INS Kochi, the second ship of the Kolkata Class destroyers.

The ship successfully tracked and intercepted the aerial target at enhanced ranges with pinpoint accuracy. This firing marked a significant milestone in proving the successful integration of these missiles with the ship-borne systems including the indigenously developed combat management system.

INS Kochi is one of the country’s most potent warships and the second ship of the Kolkata-class stealth guided-missile destroyers built for the Indian Navy.
