Continuous missiles are being tested by India on the Line of Actual Control in Eastern Ladakh, amidst the conflict with China for the last eight months. Two Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missiles (QRSAM), which hit the ground to the sky, were successfully tested by the Indian Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO) on Tuesday. This missile system successfully hit its target during the test.
After successful missile test, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the DRDO by tweeting. He wrote that the first test on 13 November proved the capability of radar and missile by directly marking the target. Today’s missile test shows performance at proximity detection.

Earlier on 13 November, the Quick Reaction Surface to Air Missile System achieved a major milestone by hitting a Banshey pilotless target aircraft at medium range and medium altitude. The missile has been developed as part of the Indian Army’s air defense system.
At the same time, India had successfully tested the ground-to-air Quick Reaction Missile in Balasore, Odisha. Earlier last month, the Prithvi-2 ballistic missile was successfully tested at Chandipur interim test complex in Balasore district.
