  • Three army equipment are being displayed for the first time during the parade, Major General Alok Kacker, the Chief of Staff Delhi Area, who is the parade’s second-in-command said. The main attraction out of the three would be the Dhanush artillery gun. The Dhanush is a 155mm calibre artillery gun, which has been developed by the OFB.

    "Investigators... discovered that two Tor-M1 missiles... were fired at the aircraft," it said, adding an investigation was ongoing to assess the bearing their impact had on the accident.

    Sources said after the missile is inducted into the Su30MKI fighter jets from which it has been tested, the system would be integrated on other foreign-origin combat aircraft. The performance of the Astra, sources said, is regarded to be better than similar Russian systems currently in service.

    Saturday's strike follows months of relative calm in the war between the Iran-backed Huthis and Yemen's internationally recognised government, which is backed by a Saudi-led military coalition. The Huthis attacked a mosque in a military camp in the central province of Marib -- about 170 kilometres (105 miles) east of the capital Sanaa.

    India is expected to carry out more tests of the missile before it is ready for being equipped on the nuclear submarines. At the moment, only the first nuclear boat INS Arihant is operational for the Navy. K-4 is one of the two underwater missiles that are being developed by India for its submarine force. The other one is the over 700-kilometre strike range BO-5.

    "It's miraculous no one was hurt," Lt Col Staci Coleman, the US air force officer who runs the airfield, told reporters on Monday at the vast base deep in the western Anbar desert in Iraq, where 1,500 Americans were deployed. "Who thinks they're going to have ballistic missiles launched at them ... and suffer no casualties?"

    The projectiles were fired 30 seconds apart and explain why the plane's transponder was not working as it hurtled to the ground -- it was disabled by the first strike, before being hit by a second, said the New York Times, which published the verified security camera footage Tuesday.

    The production of S-400 missiles to be delivered to India has started, Russian Deputy Chief of Mission Roman Babushkin said. EAM S Jaishankar will visit Russia on March 22 and March 23 to attend a meeting of the Russia-Indian-China trilateral. The S-400, an upgraded version of the S-300, had previously only been available to the Russian defence forces.

    According to the US Justice Department, the five men, based in Canada, Hong Kong, and UK, “operated an international procurement network of front companies that existed to acquire US-origin goods for AERO) and PAEC, and to cause those goods to be exported from the United States to the entities without export licenses in violation of federals law.”

    ​​"Our aim was not really to kill enemy soldiers. That was not important," the Guards' commander, Hossein Salami, told parliament, referring to last Wednesday's missile operation launched to avenge the killing of a top Iranian general.
