Rather Than modifying The Su-30MKI AIRFRAME in order to carry these weapons , It would be more prudent to Get hold of Su-34 Fullbacks , now that they are battle tested in syria , there can never be doubts about it's air-to-surface capabilities

What about Tejas ? If and when integrated such a weapon will transform the aircraft into a very potent ground attack platform too.

Old concept but if cost effective and equally destructive then go for it. May be need more high tech features so DRDO and reputed private players should join in hands for development. No wonder if Israelis have hand in it.

That was one hell of a story, the kind that will make you stop laughing only after your trousers have fallen off!These full-scale models have all been fabricated by only one person in his garage: the IAF’s current Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Western Air Command, Air Marshal S B Deo. He himself confirmed this to me. It’s like me fabricating the body of a car without factoring in items like the weight & volume of its engine, gearbox, cooling element, tyre-rim diameter, transmission, etc etc. And if the Air Marshal is trying to pull off cheap publicity stunts like these to… Read more »

This should be encouraged.

1. This allows DRDO to understand IAF's thinking operationaly, instead of arguements in a GSQR.

2. Brings in a understanding within IAF, R&D is not a easy task. They will undestand what DRDO has to go through when creating systems for IAF. Brings in a sense of ownership.

3. Untimately there might be a joing IAF- DRDO research team.

Looks like dummy object without any real machine inside. So easy to develop such high end product without proper financing? Israeli imprints are there.

Great weapons!! India is making great strides in missiles. This is extremely appropriate in Indian context. Congratulations to the AVM for leading this team. The future of war is about unmanned and long range weapons. India should work on becoming a leading designer of quality missiles. This will help bypass the gap in traditional weapons technology.

IAF expects only worlds best equipment. Shiv, can you do a comparison of this equipment with one of the worlds best equipment. If this equipment is not as good as the worlds best equipmentm, then call it by the names that have been used for the DRDO products. Anyway, are there GSQR for this type of equipment ?

if funds are made available , and these systems can be operationalized in the next five years with help from pvt sectot , then it is worth trying it . what Air Marshall S B Deo has done is simply fine tuned concepts which needs to be researched and production variants developed. There is a strong lobby within the country which opposes any good or bad attempt of developing indigineous technology, so they will be wailing at the height of their voice. Lastly you story is not yellow journalism as mentioned by some so called jack of all, you have… Read more »
