According to Lebanon based Publication ” Tactical report “, the Egyptian Ministry of Production (MoMP) is in talks with India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation for the sale of a Pralay Tactical Ballistic Missile (TBM).
The report also says that Egypt is also seeking a Transfer of Technology (ToT) that will allow local production rights to Egypt for the missile to be produced domestically.
Pralay is India’s first tactical quasi-ballistic missile, which will be an important component of India’s planned Rocket Force. The Pralay missile project was sanctioned in 2015 and is a derivative of the Prahaar missile programme, which was first tested in 2011.
The canisterised Pralay missile, with a range of 150-500 kilometres, has been developed according to the specifications and requirements of the Army, which was looking to arm itself with a tactical conventional missile that could be used on the battlefield.
In 2022, India and Egypt signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen bilateral defence cooperation. Defence Minister Rajanth Singh, who is on a two-day visit to Cairo, and his Egyptian counterpart, General Mohamed Zaki, signed it.
