India’s indigenously developed helicopter-launched, anti-tank guided missile HELINA was successfully flight tested in the desert areas of Pokhran in Rajasthan on a Sunday afternoon.
It was tested from a Army helicopter for its full range of capabilities, a Defence Ministry statement said Sunday.
The HELINA weapon system released smoothly from the launch platform, tracked the target all through its course, and struck it with high precision. All the parameters were monitored by the telemetry stations, tracking systems and helicopters.
In another development, the defense ministry also announced the successful flight test of indigenously designed and developed guided bombs (Smart Anti Airfield Weapon SAAW) from an IAF aircraft at the Chandan range.
The weapon system was integrated with a live warhead and has destroyed targets with high precision. The SAAW is the combined effort of the DRDO, IAF and HAL.
A total of three tests with different release conditions were conducted during August 16-18 and all the mission objectives have been achieved. This weapon is capable of destroying a variety of ground targets using precision navigation.
