    All countries have an export version. I hope we too have separate versions for use by own armed forces and export versions.

    Usually our local arms are better than & have better support than some export versions . The export versions we receive are also usually inferior to the ones used by that country’s own armed forces, is it not ?

    The concept of non-containerized missiles is archaic nowadays. If DRDO could introduce a containerized version of an extended range Akash, then there would be real potential.

    At last a beginning is made ! According to media reports, BrahMos Aerospace is set to be Commercial Arm of DRDO abroad. (Pl follow the link) .
    Why Commercial Arm is Necessary !
    As such, need for a commercial arm of the Defence Research and Development Organization DRDO is being felt for a long time.

    DPSUs, with profits as the main focus for demonstrating their success / performance find transfer of production lines far more lucrative, a easier profit spinner and thus more conducive to fetching excellent Performance Appraisal Reports for the company’s top decision makers.

    Home grown proven technologies, having gone through long drawn testings and trials and users’ well demonstrated resistance, require efforts and dedication to evolve an efficient manufacturing line and transform the indigenously developed product into a manufactured product with required Quality Control.

    WHILE RESPONSIBILITY for DELAYS, QUALITY ISSUES, SLOW PRODUCTION etc etc IS CONVENIENTLY TRANSFERRED TO R&D , ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF THE FACT OF TECHNOLOGIES BEING BOUGHT FROM DRDO, that too PRACTICALLY FREE OF COST , IS NEVER MADE VISIBLE as evident from numerous advertisements, exhibits and so on. A quick check by comparing any of the large number of advertisements etc displayed by the DPSUs with the DRDO website / bouchers will confirm that most of the product have been developed by DRDO.

    Thus, rapid strides in achieving Self-Reliance in Defence demands FREEDOM TO THE DESIGNERs to CHOOSE the MANUFACTURING PARTNER and PROMOTE / MARKET IT’S PRODUCTS through IT’S OWN COMMERCIAL ARM
