[VIDEO] Indian Army’s 4th FAILED Cruise Missile Test leaves Pakistan social media in fits
In just 35 days, it was India’s tenth missile test.
Indian Army has failed the test-launch of its attack cruise missile for the fourth time. The indigenously built intermediate-range land-attack rocket was named Nirbhay and was dubbed the Indian version of the American Tomahawk and the Russian Club SS-N-27. However, the subsonic cruise missile failed the test within 8 minutes of the launch.
In just 35 days, it was India’s tenth missile test. While many were successful, Nirbhay failed the test flight of the 1000-km range. According to the country’s defense scientists, the failure was due to a technical issue. However, they gave no further details on the matter.
The missile’s local production began in 2007. Reports state that the stealthy rocket was powered by the Russian Saturn 50MT turbofan engine and could deliver different warheads and switch targets during the flight. Over time, the missile failed all five test launches.
Observing the initial behavior, the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) made various changes to its design and equipment and retested the missile on the 12th of October. Thirteen years of work done flushed down the drain when the rocket failed the task again.
Pakistani social media erupted with jokes and memes. Twitterati started tweeting about the Indian Army. Some related the failure to the ‘famous landing’ of the Indian pilot, Abhinandan, while others recalled the failed test of Agni-III.
Here are some of the funniest reactions on Twitter:

Another failed test. India should ask Dr. Nawaz Sharif to build a Tom Hawk Missile for them.
