    Any reason for Sukhoi to delay?-Requested too much cost for this. Brahmos in SU30MKI will be very effective.

    What would be the weight of brahmos missile alone.Will it affect the manveroubility of SU 30. Is it for specific mission or it can perform multirole pregnant with brahmos. Any answers shivji?

    Is it worth the cost and effort to convert this missile in to air launch, especially when you don’t own the missile 100% and have to go cap in hand to Russia and fill their pockets with money together with time overruns? I thought the impending home grown cruise missile (Nirbhay) will fill that gap if there’s a gap?

    It is around 2.5 tons. So I would assume it will affect the maneuverability of the aircraft and will not be able to perform any other mission due to the weight and size of the missile.
    3 missiles would be too much, and for strategic missile capability one missile per aircraft with some escort is totally accepted, at least by me.

    Interesting would be to see if air launched Brahmos is a multirole missile or just anti-ship one.

    Can we retire the Jaguars now that we can launch Brahmos from MKI ?
    The funny thing is that this missile is likely to be more expensive than the pakistani floating junk it will sink 🙂
    Mini-Brahmos @ 3 per MKI will restore the balance to pull the trigger.

    Yakhont, on which Brahmos is based, was basically
    developed for tube-launch from ships
    and not optimised for weight.
    ASMP & YJ-12 are much lighter than Brahmos-A.
    Brahmos Aerospace looks to be
    hard-selling it to IAF, doubtful that Russian Defence
    agencies are interested in it.
    Hope, DRDO comes with its own lighter Supersonic ASM quickly.

    Why bramhos is not integrated with Tejas. As its indian platform and more mature then sukhoi in terms of indegenious and integration will become more easy..it will boost a chance of tejas to become front line fighter with lethal capability.
