Too late too less range. They should have tested this a decade earlier. If they can do AAD this should not have taken much time. Test if fast and enhace the range to 120kms and make it standard on all IAF aircrafts.

slight correction. It is not the Lakshya itself which is the target. It is a towed target from Lakshya.

Shiv, I heard somewhere that Astra is also being developed as a SAM(Surface to Air)….Is this test a part to validate the SAM characteristics?

Too heavy and bulky, would take another 10 years to get into service. Remember Nag, Trishul – even after 20 years of development not in service yet.
