DRDO developed upgraded SANT missile enters limited series production

Alpha defense has reported that the improved SANT (Standoff Anti-Tank Missile) is all set to enter limited series production for user trials with the Indian Army that features an improved propulsion and enhanced millimeter wave seeker and the upgraded variant has an extended range of 20 kilometers.

The missile features both lock on after launch and lock-on before launch capabilities that provides greater flexibility and adaptability in a variety of combat situations.

During the test last December, the SANT missile was launched from a Mi-35 helicopter (Russian helicopter) gunship. The missile hit the target precisely and performed extremely complex maneuvers. This successful test launch has further increased the confidence of the missile developers and the armed forces.

As per the officials associated with the missile, SANT is one of the best airborne anti-armour guided missiles in the world in the category of Spike NLOS. With the improved seeker and extended range, SANT is set to revolutionize airborne warfare.

In conclusion, the Standoff Anti-Tank Missile (SANT) is an advanced weapon system that will play a crucial role in modern airborne warfare. The limited series production of SANT is specifically for user trials with the Army, which demonstrates the military’s interest in the missile. With its extended range, lock-on capabilities, and improved seeker, the missile offers greater flexibility and adaptability in a variety of combat situations. The successful test launches and the endorsement by officials have further reinforced the belief that SANT is one of the best anti-armour guided missiles in the world. The introduction of SANT into user trials will strengthen the defense capabilities of the armed forces and provide them with a significant edge over the enemy. SANT missile IgMp
