New Delhi: The Indian Navy this week successfully conducted the maiden trial firing of newly installed surface-to-air missile (SAM) system from its aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, an official statement said on Friday.

"During the firing carried out in the Arabian Sea, the missile was fired against a live low flying high speed target. The target was successfully engaged and destroyed," the statement said.

The test was carried out on Wednesday, as part of the Operational Readiness Inspection of the Western Fleet by Western Naval Command chief Vice Admiral Girish Luthra.

"The missile marks a significant milestone in providing air interception and defence capabilities, thus enhancing operational capabilities of the Navy's aircraft carrier and the fleet," the statement added.
