India to order Hammer Missiles for Rafale Jets

India has decided to fit Highly Agile Modular Munition Extended Range (HAMMER) stand-off missiles on the Rafale fighter jet aircraft. And to this regard, the order for these missiles is being processed under the emergency powers for acquisition given to the Armed Forces. Also, France has agreed to supply them at a short notice for the Rafale combat aircraft. Basically, HAMMER is a medium-range air-to-ground missile having the capability to take out any types of targets at the range of around 60-70 km. It is expected that five Rafale aircrafts and their advanced weaponry including the long-range SCALP and Meteor missiles would be reaching India before July end.
