BALASORE - India performed a successful test of its new Barak 8 medium-range surface-to-air missile on June 30. The test took place from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur. Indian officials said the test met all the targets.

The missile intercepted a Banshee aerial target drone over the Bay of Bengal. Indian Defence Research Development Laboratory (DRDL), a laboratory of DRDO based at Hyderabad, is working with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) to develop this missile system.

A new production facility will deliver 100 missiles a year.

LONDON - A Eurofighter Typhoon fighter featuring the latest weapons fit will display at the 2016 Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) and Farnborough International Air Show. BT17 will take to the skies at the RIAT show on July 8, 9 and 10 followed by this year’s Farnborough International Air Show, with BAE Systems Experimental Test Pilot Nat Makepeace at the controls.

The display will demonstrate Typhoon carrying four MBDA Meteor active radar Beyond Visual Range Air to Air missiles, two MBDA Brimstone 2 low collateral damage missiles, two ASRAAM short range missiles and two Paveway IV laser guided precision bombs.

"This is one of the first times a Typhoon aircraft has flown with this weapons fit and it demonstrates the significant milestones which have been achieved towards integration of these new capabilities on to Typhoon, providing the combat pilot with a full range of capabilities," said Makepeace, adding that the display will also demonstrate is that the Typhoon can maintain a high level of agility even with this weapons fit.

Eurofighter Partner Companies, with the support of MBDA, Eurofighter GmbH and the U.K. Ministry of Defence are working on the integration Phase 2 and Phase 3 Enhancement packages for Typhoon. Phase 1 Enhancements were delivered on to the aircraft last year and included integration of Paveway IV for precision air-to-surface operations. With Phase 2, Typhoon will gain a deep attack capability through the integration of the Storm Shadow air-to-surface deep strike missile and the Meteor missile. Phase 3 Enhancements will introduce a low collateral precision strike air-to-surface capability using the Brimstone missile.
