India’s state-run Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL) is currently engaged in discussions with the Indian Army and Indian Air Force (IAF) for the acquisition of the Long-Range Artillery (LORA) surface-to-surface missile system.
Developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) ‘MALAM’ division, this sea-to-ground and ground-to-ground missile system offers a long-range ballistic capability jointly developed with India. With its versatile applications and impressive precision, the LORA system has already been successfully inducted into the Indian Navy.
The LORA missile system, also known as a ‘quasi-ballistic’ missile, is a highly adaptable platform designed for both naval and land-based operations. The system’s missiles, already deployed by the Indian Navy, come in a four-cell container configuration, requiring minimal deck space for launch. In the land-based setup, LORA missiles are launched from sealed four-cell launchers mounted on flatbed trucks.
This advanced missile system equips the Indian armed forces with ballistic assault capabilities across multiple ranges. With a precision level of 10 meters Circular Error Probable (CEP), the LORA system ensures remarkable accuracy in its engagements. It boasts an impressive range of 400 kilometres (250 miles) and employs a combination of GPS and TV-based terminal guidance for precise target tracking and engagement.
