At the 63rd Foundation Day celebrations of National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) a wind tunnel model of the Supersonic TARget Missile (STAR) was spotted.
The Mach 2.4 capable STAR missile can be launched from fighter jets and surface platforms that will be used to train surface warship crews to detect and defeat incoming supersonic anti-ship missiles.

The STAR is currently going through wind tunnel testing and it is expected that it will be ready by the end of 2020 for demonstration trials.
