    Well the price is nullifying the high power of CL-20. May be the full rate production will bring down the price in near future.

    What a waste of public money. These bombs are very very expensive though i understand they are compact and lightweight and therefore will be of high stretegic importance.

    Now a cheap alternative to this has been used by US army and Isareli forces for decades. Thats called the "depleted uranium" bombs which contains minute traces of uranium, are cheap & power packed.

    Apart from these many shells fired by the M1A1 TANKS in gulf war contains "depleted uranium".

    @Pranav in this era of Wikipedia you could have checked what "depleted uranium" means before forwarding that link.
    Depleted Uranium is not an explosive like RDX. It is superdense material which uses energy from impact to penetrate and obliterate the target. It's very similar to what happens when a large meteor impacts with Earth's surface (same effect as that of nuke bomb aka mass converting to energy).

    What is that picture above from? Is india developing SDB equivalent of its own using this new explosive?

    Kunal

    cost/kg of HMX = Rs. 6,000
    Lethality/power/potency of CL-20 over HMX = 15x
    therefore, matching break-even price/cost = Rs. 90,000
    but, at Rs. 70,000; it is 22.23% cheaper, which means more bang for lesser bucks.
    So, where is the problem???

    This item should be used to miniaturize weapons systems especially on fighter-bombers and submarines where space/vol is at a premium.

    Dudes ICL-20 will help India in shrinking the warheads which will help in India's AURA UCAV programme!!!!!!!

    Miniaturization/Range/Explosive Power will increase. Mass production and more orders may tend to bring down the prices and taxpayers hard earned money will be saved.

    Shouldn't it be called "reverse engineering" rather than "inverse technology"?

    You know, DRDO could have saved a lot of money in "independently" synthesizing CL-20 by simply going over to wikipedia.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane

    It is only 20% more energetic compared to conventional explosives not 15X

    LOL, Also are there any "elite clubs" that India hasn't joined yet?

    @ anon with the wiki links

    ya right…
    have you learnt chemistry…
    its easy to say..mix these chemicals…u get the compound
    what conditions so that you get that compound..
    what conditions so that it doesnt blow up in the lab while being made

    i didnt see none of that in wiki
    but do go ahead..make it @ home…we could use the experimental data from the explosion!!!

    According to wiki, the explosive velocity of RDX is 8750 m/s, while that of HMX is 9100 m/s. The explosive velocity of CL-20, on the other hand, is 9380 m/s, a mere 3% more than HMX. According to Global Security, CL-20 is 20% more powerful than HMX i.e. 1.2 times HMX.

    So unless I'm missing something, this '15 times' seems to be an exaggeration.

    In the same way we created the most advanced "Light" combat aircraft, a state of the art military aircraft engine, an advanced light transport aircraft, a state of the art tank, a state of the art AFV, a state of the art – Yakkety Yak. When it comes to bombast, we are obviously No. 1 .

    Stated cost of Brahmos is $2.73 Million with a warhead of 300 kg by using ICL-20 we are getting 15 times bigger bang which would have costed approx $40.99 Million on the other hand one can reduce the warhead weight and increase the range it is a win win situation.MCTR or no MCTR

    I sincerely hope this news is true, but every source on the web says CL-20 is 15% – 20% more powerful than HMX – not 15x times more powerful.

    Maybe the guys who typed out the despatch gut it wrong. Shiv, please can you check through your sources?

    Correction:
    Please correct the title of the post. It should read DRDO recreates/reverse engineers…,

    I think the headline should say "
