    if this missile becomes a success we have catched up with france which has MICA,but ASTRA has french seeker.
    but we need this missile deployed soon not after 3-4 years when ramjet missiles with better range are available

    chinese SD 10 has russian seeker.
    they are selling them to pakistan.

    Even if the Astra missile is good as they claim it is..they could have spared the “most advanced BVR in existence thing” in press releases..same goes for Arjun,LCA and all..Its somewhat nauseating ..its like the paki brags..of babur and all..
    atleast we in india..dont have the habit of lying like hell..like pakis do..Just state what the test shows…and even if that was avg no probs..better luck next time..no need for bragging..

    nice clean burn..looks like a neat propellant..don’t they need some extra boosters to launch from the ground launcher..?so if they can pull off a ground launch..does that mean..we will have a good SAM too like Spyder system..?
    Awesome..hope they could pull off a laser fuse..we havnt really conquered the full spectrum of seeker technologies..like millimetric-IIR and stuff..they day we master them..that will be one hell of a day..

    now WAIT A MINUTE… this is an air-to-air missile, when the hell are they going to test it air-to-air?

    I dont understand what they are trying to prove with these ground tests. Almost 80% of the testing would be wrto attaching this to an airframe, how smoothly it gets released, impact of the plume on the aircraft intakes, how it chases and destroys an actual target, and most importantly how it performs at designed altitudes and ranges…

    Can someone explain what was so successful about this test? was an actual target destroyed? how close are ground environments to actual release from aircrafts? As I remember it, this test was supposed to be from an Su30

    anon above,
    it’s amply clear you know nothing about missile testing.

    kindly shut your trap and save yourself the embarrassment.

    i agree with kannan… these days all systems by drdo are the best, state-of-the-art or most advanced.
    We never know when they do something really good. 🙁
