missile to end Indian
developed a new air defence system consisting of Sam Missile
named as Anza-III, which is ready to undergo tests. The
missile system has been already tested in different stages.
The Anza-III is the advanced form of Anza-MK-I and Anza-MK-II.
The basic difference between them is that the first and
second Sam Missiles were portable and could be fired from
shoulder. While the new version Anza-III is fired by a mobile
or fixed launcher.
Though the technical details of the missile are yet to be
revealed but the sources claim that Anza-III can destroy
any air target within 10-15 kilometers. The Anza-III is
basically an anti-aircraft missile and with further research
it could be modified as an anti-missile weapon. The Anza-III
is lifted in the air by a booster with solid fuel while
the heat guidance system, armed with infrared equipment,
leads it to the target.
With a successful test of Anza-III missile system, Pakistan
would be able to finish the Indian dominance of Indian Akash
missile. All the missiles of Anza series have been successfully
developed by Kahuta Research Laboratories of Pakistan.
It is said that Pakistani Anza-MK-I had shot down Indian
MiG-21 and MiG-27 fighter jets in Kargil Sector on May 26,
