Submarine-based missiles

India has a number of foreign-produced cruise missile systems in its arsenal, which includes the Klub (SS-N-27). It also has some indigenous cruise missile systems under development, including the Sagarika and Lakshya variants. The Navy has got the Lakshya PTA [http://pib.nic.in/feature/feyr2003/ffeb2003/f190220031.html] . The Sagarika (Oceanic) began development in 1994 as a submarine-launched cruise missile (SLCM) which will have a range of at least 300 km (a few claim 1000 km). Another successful program has been the development of the Yakhont Anti Ship Missile system into the BrahMos, by NPO and India's DRDO. The BrahMos has been tailored to Indian needs and uses a large proportion of Indian designed components and technology, for its fire control systems, Transporter erector launches, to its onboard nav-attack system.

The Navy inducted the Lakshya PTA into service. [ [http://pib.nic.in/feature/feyr2003/ffeb2003/f190220031.html
