The Indian Navy has received approval from the Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) to procure the Medium Range Anti-Ship Missile (MRAShM), marking a substantial boost to its offensive capabilities. The DAC, led by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, granted Acceptance of Necessity (AoN) for the acquisition of these advanced missiles on November 30, 2023.

The MRAShM is a domestically developed lightweight Surface-to-Surface Missile, designated as the primary offensive weapon for Indian Naval Ships. Its design enables it to target a diverse array of objectives, including warships, merchant vessels, and coastal fortifications.

Deployment of the MRAShM is planned on 24 existing and upcoming warships, encompassing three Delhi-class destroyers, four Kora-class missile corvettes, and six new Next Generation Missile Vessels (NGMV) scheduled to be commissioned in the coming decade. The MRAShM will replace the existing Zvezda Kh-35 Uran anti-ship missile systems on these vessels.

The introduction of the MRAShM into the Indian Navy’s arsenal will significantly augment its offensive capabilities, serving as a potent deterrent against potential adversaries. The missile’s extended range, precision, and anti-ship warfare capabilities will enhance the Indian Navy’s capacity to protect its territorial waters and safeguard maritime interests.
