Balasore: India on Sunday successfully test fired all-weather and all-terrain Quick Reaction Surface-to-Air Missile (QRSAM) from a test range at Chandipur off Odisha coast.

It was tested from a mobile truck-based launch unit at complex 3 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur near here at 11.05 am, DRDO sources said.

The surface-to-air missile, which can be mounted on a truck and stored in a canister, is equipped with electronic counter measures against jamming by aircraft radars.

The sleek and highly mobile air defence system has been developed for the Indian Army.
This was the second test-fire of the missile this year. It was tested successfully on February 26 from a rotatable truck-based launch unit at Chandipur. The missile was first tested on June 4, 2017 and again on July 3, 2017.
