Good to see local arms being inducted. Now DRDO should get into continuous improvement mode and release them at regular intervals.

Warhead can still survive and hit the target…
India need to develop hit to kill means hitting the incoming vehicle directly…
That is the only proof of destruction…

Have to salute Viv S from BR forums for a blitzkrieg of absolutely great opinion on inducting Tejas jets, and scrapping the PAK-FA in favour of AMCA.
