Armenia has reportedly approached India to inquire about acquiring theatre quasi-ballistic missiles, a move likely prompted by Azerbaijan’s recent use of the Israeli-made LORA system. The LORA, boasting a range of 400km, emerged as a concern for Armenia during the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Azerbaijan’s deployment in the war’s final days, particularly against the Lachin corridor bridge, highlighted the potential threat it poses.

At Aero India 2023, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Bharat Electronics and IAI for potential LORA production in India. However, this licensing agreement is likely still in its early stages.

India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has developed the Prahaar, a 200km range tactical ballistic missile. While not yet officially inducted, the Indian military currently favours the longer-range, 500km Pralay missile system.

The specific details of Armenia’s request and India’s potential response remain unclear. The sensitive nature of such weaponry adds another layer of complexity. Notably, Armenia already operates India’s Pinaka Multi-Barrel Rocket Launchers (MBRLs) with a range of 90km.

Armenia’s interest in acquiring missiles with greater range underscores the ongoing regional tensions. Whether India can or will fulfil Armenia’s request remains to be seen, with factors like ongoing licensing agreements and domestic defence priorities playing a role in the decision-making process.
