The SAMs length is about 4.5m, diameter 0.54m, wingspan 0.94m and can achieve Mach 2 speeds.

Some technologies are absolutely new with no parallels in the world and it took time to realise them, said the official when quizzed over the delays. Once the system is deployed, it will be a unique system in its class, he said.
