India's DRDO launched an ABM five minutes after a launch of its Prithvi Ballistic Missile , which was intercepted and destroyed successfully. The challenge will be to produce this sophisticated armament in quantity.

Quoting comorin (Reply 2): Real life testing of this product must be quite expensive! You would need quite a few successive hits before it goes to production.
This is very sophisticated stuff and the DRDO deserves kudos.
DRDO's aim now should be to stay ahead in the game. Ballistic missiles are slowly becoming passe' now with the advent of longer range cruise missiles and ABM technology. Their aim should be to develop and bring systems into production before potential adversaries get similar stuff.
