It is fitted with Israel’s Barak missile and can travel at a lightning pace. The missile is powered by an indigenously developed rocket motor and control system to achieve high manoeuvrability.

The naval version of the MRSAM has been operationally deployed on three Indian Navy warships. The Indian Army is yet to induct the system.
