The Indian Navy shared a video on Thursday where we can see an anti-submarine stealth frigate successfully engaging a low-flying target.
The video begins with a missile coming out of its silo and taking position to hit its target. Once launched, the missile heads to its target and there's a blast just above the waters, confirming that the missile was able to hit the low-flying object.
About SAM System
- A surface-to-air missile (SAM), is a missile designed to be launched from the ground to destroy aircraft or other missiles.
- The first attempt at SAM development took place during World War II, Further development in the 1940s and 1950s.
- Smaller systems, suitable for close-range work, evolved through the 1960s and 1970s.
- Shipborne systems followed the evolution of land-based models, starting with long-range weapons and steadily evolving toward smaller designs to provide a layered defence.

Watch Your Navy's guided-missile anti-submarine stealth frigate do what it does best - successfully engage a low flying target with its SAM system, reaffirming the mantra of her crew, HIT FIRST!
