After the recent tensions with China, India's war frenzy is on the rise as the Indian government has also agreed to buy 'HAMMER' missiles from France after the much talked about Rafale jets.

According to Indian media reports, the country is also signing Hammer missiles agreement with France after the agreements of Rafale planes. The Indian Army is signing an agreement for 60-70 km hammer missiles using the emergency powers recently given to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and it is believed that the agreement is being done in the context of recent tensions with China.

Border tensions between India and China have been simmering in eastern Ladakh for months, with Indian government officials claiming that France has assured them that the missiles will be handed over to India soon. The missiles developed for the country will be delivered to India on an emergency basis.

According to Safran Electronics & Defense, a company that manufactures hammer missiles, HAMMER (Highly Agile Modular Munition Extended Range) is a medium-range air-to-ground weapon designed and manufactured for the French Air Force and Navy initially.

The missiles can be used easily from a distance, while the guidance kit on the front of the missile is fitted with technologies such as infrared and lasers, capable of destroying bunkers and other installations along difficult routes in mountainous areas.

Under the agreement between India and France, the first batch of five Rafale fighter jets will land at the airport in the Indian state of Haryana on July 29.
