India successfully test-fires supersonic missile Assisted Torpedo in Odisha. The DRDO tested a long-range Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo (SMART Missile). The Government of India is taking all possible steps to strengthen the Indian Armed forces. While the Air version of the BrahMos Supersonic missile was added to the Air Force of the Indian Armed Forces on 8 December, the Indian Navy has also got a new strength as a missile test in India by DRDO. To further strengthen the Indian Navy, a supersonic missile torpedo made by DRDO was successfully test-fired.
India’s power has increased even more after this supersonic missile test in India torpedo. It was added to the Indian Navy. In a statement given by DRDO, it has been said that this missile has been designed and developed to further improve the submarine warfare of the Indian Navy. This missile is far more powerful than conventional torpedoes.

On Tuesday, India’s most trusted company DRDO successfully test-fired a long-range supersonic missile assistant torpedo. This test was done off the Balasore coast of Odisha. This test was successfully confirmed by the Defense Research Development Organization. He also told that this missile has been designed in such a way that the submarine warfare of the Indian Navy can get maximum strength. The power of this missile made by us is more than the power of other conventional torpedoes.
The more powerful torpedo than the Indian torpedo range is the Anti-Submarine Warfare Operation. SMART missile whose weight is very less, it will prove to be very effective for anti-submarine torpedo systems. A torpedo is an automatic weapon that can easily send a limited distance target underwater. A project was initiated by the Defense Research Development Organization in the year 2010 to build the capability to launch torpedoes by missiles. The first torpedo missile to be built in this project was a missile test in India on 4 October 2020.
Features of Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedo Missile (SMART):-
- This is a completely made in India.
- It is a type of supersonic anti-ship missile.
- The weight of this Supersonic Missile Assisted Torpedomissile is very less than the weight of other torpedo missiles because Poled has been used to make it.
- It has the merits of a supersonic anti-conference missile that it is equipped with both the characteristics of a missile and a torpedo.
- That is, it also has the ability to destroy the submarine by acting like a missile.
- Once fully developed by DRDO, the range of this missile will be 650 km.
What is a SMART torpedo Missile?
If you don’t know what a torpedo is? So let us tell you that in any submarine, a cigar-shaped automatic weapon that repels water is called a torpedo. It is launched from a submarine. The torpedo destroys its target by detonating it in the depths of the ocean. Varunastra was India’s first indigenously designed torpedo. This indigenous torpedo was launched as Anti-Submarine Electrical Torpedo.
Importance of SMART Missile for Indian Navy:-
A project named SMART Missile was started by DRDO to enhance the powers of the Indian Navy. To launch this SMART missile, DRDO and Research Center Imarat, Hyderabad, Aerial Research and Development Establishment Agra, Naval Science and Technology Laboratory, Visakhapatnam have done it. The test of this missile will increase the strategic power of the country and the powers of the Navy will also increase. This will prove to be a great achievement for Anti-Submarine Warfare. The project was approved for commissioning in the year 2003. It is a type of anti-submarine warship currently used by the Indian Navy.These submarines include INS Kamorta, INS Kadmatt, INS Kavaratti and INS Kilton.
