    What is the Indian part in the Indo-Israeli missile. My assumption is that the only contribution that India made was in giving the $$ nothing much else. And will this be manufactured in India or we will just import this.

    In this specific Indo-israeli air-defence missile project India's DRDO's main contribution is to develop missile's solid fuel based propulsion system which is a improved one derived from the Akash SAM project.

    you are right,india could buy better systems than this MRSAM it meets israel requirements only,israel is not going to give TOT for seekers,

    all other MFSTAR missiles controls will be produced with tech transfer but seekers will come directly from israel and this is called codevelopment.

    but on the other hand if someone start license production of better SAM system one will get all tech transfer except seeker.

    India is only making the plastic stickers for this missile system, using imported ???? machines. Bit like Hero Honda, who launch "all new" motorcycles by 'developing' stickers.

    Israel is doing all the real work. They also own and control the I.P. (this point is meaningless since even with IP our "engineers" won't know what to do with the missile anyway).

    India's scientists are very advanced in math and software tech; also they are EXTREMELY focused and objective. With these abilities, I am sure they contributed much to barak-8. But I do admit that they are about 10 yrs. behind the best on hardware tech.

    Although this SAM is an Indo-Israeli project, why doesn't India fast track the indigenous Akash SAM to reduce its dependence on imports? It already knows how to build a SAM system, why not finish the Akash and set a timetable for IOC?

    Or is it because the Indo-Israeli Barak-8 is a navalized SAM?
