The Indian Navy successfully conducted the maiden firing of newly developed Long Range Barak 8 Surface-to-Air Missile (LR SAM). The firing was undertaken on the Western Seaboard by INS Kolkata, wherein the missile successfully intercepted an Aerial Target at extended ranges. The Barak-8 missile is being developed in joint collaboration by India and Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). These missiles will be fitted onboard the Kolkata Class Destroyers and would also be fitted on all future major warships of the Indian Navy. At a cost of over $1.5 billion, the Barak-8 project was commissioned in 2006.
