A good FIRST step. Many miles to go, as a wise man said. We must know how much to slap our backs -the real test on a manoeuvring target would be the proof of the pudding. Best of luck DRDO. Now, pl stick to timelines and advertised performance

Congrats to DRDO, IAF and others. Since the missile extensively tested against aerial targets from the ground launchers, I don't think so any major technical hurdles. Hoping faster service entry and improved versions follows.

Hopefully it did not get hit any passenger flights.

The DRDO dumbos will make sure that this will take another 50 yrs to make it operational.

Dear Shiv,

Is DRDO thinking of converting this missile into a SAM as well?

American AMRAAM has been converted by Norway and Israeli Python/Derby has been converted so why not this one?

Please inform.
Thanks

NSR says –
This is truly a great milestone for India…
Once MK-1 and MK-2 are developed and tested, then they can use them on all of the aircraft…
The seeker technology will significantly enable/improve Akash as it can hit the incoming threats from body to body…
India should not buy Rafale and instead spend all of that money on producing LCA/Tejas, missiles, avionics, engines, seekers, etc…
This will develop Indian manufacturing and create high paying jobs for next 50 years for Indians instead of French…
Congratulations to DRDO/IAF…

Can someone give a realistic comparison between Su30MKI vs F15, J11 and EuroTyphoon.

I'd love Mr. Aroor do an article on this himself 😀

If I remember aright the Americans fired 1000 Sidewinders- all from dead astern-and then used some hairy interpolation techniques to decide the Pk. The British fired perhaps less than fifty before releasing the Fireflash- or was it the Firestreak? in service. We know how the 'winders behaved .Mercifully the Fireflash was never fired "in anger" Whichever way the DRDO goes I do wish they would hurry up a bit.

I think it would have been really awesome if the missile was fired from LCA Tejas.

Institution of Army Chief: The new lowBY M G DEVASAHAYAM Behind the push by the UPA Government in its dying days to install Lt Gen Dalbir Singh Suhag as the next COAS, is the powerful Arms Lobby which has billions of dollars at stake. The alleged ‘Line of Succession’ which was put in place is now entering its final phase. When this was challenged in the Supreme Court of India in a bid to uphold the institutional integrity of the Armed Forces, the petition was dismissed as being communal, mainly since the three main people in the line of fire… Read more »

To jayanta bordoloi and others…NSR says..It is just the beginning and these missiles are tad heavy so SU-30MKI is the perfect platform to start testing…Astra MK-1 and MK-2 will go through simple test fires to see if they can reach a designated point through various maneuvers to validate missile flight control systems…LCA/Tejas fired Russian short range AAM recently and it will fire Israel and Russian BVRAAMs soon for FOC..It needs lot of fine tuning as it is an experimental aircraft…In time, Tejas MKII will become a very fine and formidable fighter bomber…The only thing India needs to do is to… Read more »

The comments should be screened for Pakistani and Chinese trolls and keep them off and allow only posts that are fair and objective…
Some of the anonymous commenters are pure haters of India…
