India to Protect Major Cities From Ballistic Missiles
India intends to deploy defenses against ballistic missile strikes on the major cities of New Delhi and Mumbai, RIA Novosti reported on Sunday (see GSN, May 14).
The Government Committee on Security would ultimately be responsible for authorizing the plan by the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization, the Times of India reported.
The system is intended to initially be capable of bringing down enemy ballistic missiles that can fly roughly 1,240 miles; it would later be augmented to destroy weapons with ranges of up to 3,100 miles. Additional cities would be placed under the shield after Mumbai and New Delhi.
