Cruise Missile

  • Cruise missiles are self-propelled, guided weapons that can be launched from various platforms, including aircraft, ships, or ground-based launchers

  • They are designed to fly at low altitudes and can be programmed to follow a specific flight path, often hugging the terrain, which makes them difficult to detect and intercept

  • Cruise missiles can carry various types of warheads and are used for precise, long-range strikes on specific targets, such as military installations, infrastructure, or high-value targets.

  • Their ability to navigate and adapt during flight provides them with a high degree of accuracy

  • Examples :BrahMos (A joint venture between India and Russia), Nirbhay
