Defense aspirants who are preparing for defense exams must be aware of the important missiles in India it can be asked during their SSB Interview, Exam and also being a defense aspirant they must be aware of it. Path Finder Defence Academy have collected some important missiles name of Indian missiles and its ranges and speed.

So we are sharing some most important features and details of the missile system that is very important and also the difference between the different types of missiles. Let’s start from Ballistic Missile

A ballistic missile is a missile that follows a ballistic trajectory commonly known as projector path with the objectives of delivering one or more warheads to a predetermined target. These missiles are guided for the brief duration just in starting phase of trajectory and the rest of the path is like a free falling projectile under gravity. Its precision is very accurate and also make a huge damage to the target. Once the satellite is launched it will destroy the target completely.

A cruise missile is a guided missile which is used against the terrestrial targets it remains in the atmosphere and flies the major portion of its flight path at an approximately constant speed in the air. These missiles are self-navigating and fly at extremely low altitudes to avoid being caught by radars. Cruise missiles are designed to deliver a large warhead over long distances with high accuracy.

Let’s have a look on the different types of Missiles:
