The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Wednesday successfully conducted the maiden flight test of the indigenously developed Naval Anti-ship missile in Odisha. The missile was launched from Seaking 42B Naval Helicopter from ITR Balasore. According to the Indian Navy, it is the country's first indigenous air-launched Anti-ship missile system.

A video released by the Indian Navy showed that the missile followed a sea-skimming trajectory and reached the designated target with a high degree of accuracy.

The Navy said that all the sub-systems performed satisfactorily. The sensors deployed across the test range and near the impact point tracked the missile trajectory and captured all the events.
