The Defence Research and Development Organisation’s (DRDO) Advanced Defence Establishment (ADE) is on a roll. Following the successful development of the land-based Long Range Land Attack Cruise Missile (LRLACM) and its predecessor, the ITCM, ADE is now setting its sights on a naval variant.

The next chapter in the LRLACM story is the development of a ship-launched version. This sea-based missile will be integrated with a frontline warship to undergo further developmental trials. Fortunately, DRDO has already developed the Universal Vertical Launch Module (UVLM) cells required for the LRLACM program, paving the way for seamless integration.

ADE isn’t stopping there. They are also developing a potent Air-launched variant of the 1,000 km-range LRLACM. This multi-role missile will provide India with a valuable weapon for both land and sea attack missions. Testing for the anti-ship variant is expected to occur within the next 12-18 months, contingent upon the completion of UVLM cell integration into the designated warship.

The successful development of these LRLACM variants will significantly bolster India’s missile defence capabilities. The land-based version strengthens long-range deterrence, while the ship-launched and anti-ship variants provide the Indian Navy with a strategic edge in maritime operations.
