    Is this is how India’s “Desi Meteor” SFDR BVRAAM is gonna look like ?

    First basic design images of India’s “Desi Meteor” called SFDR ( Solid Fuel Ducted Ramjet Propulsion Technology) Beyond Visual range Air-to-Air Missile has emerged while development of the missile gains speed and might be reaching Ground testing phase soon.

    Ground Launchers for SFDR tenders details was first reported by idrw.org nearly two years ago and earlier this year, new tenders were issued for development of Transportable Containers for SFDR.

    History

    SFDR BVRAAM is Joint development between India and Russia which uses Baseline ASTRA BVRAAM Design with minor modification which is integrated with a booster-ram jet sustained propulsion system to provide a multi-shot capability against maneuvering targets with a range in excess of 100 kilometers.

    Technology Behind SFDR

    Conventional Rocket Motor based BVRAAMs have higher burning out rate since it works in the same amount of thrust levels from the moment it is fired, which means it can run out of fuel when it reaches its target in longer range and highly maneuverable targets can outrun the missile in the last phase if missile is fired from a long range.

    SFDR will have faster acceleration last phase due to Ducted Ramjet Propulsion Technology and unlike rocket motor, Ducted Ramjet Propulsioncan can throttle its engine during different phases of flight thus saving fuel for final approaches towards its target.

    SFDR Propulsion can build up speed in its final attack run and also have fuel to manoeuvre during the endgame of the engagement. which then can enforce “no escape zone” effectively over enemy aircraft over long ranges.

    This program was revealed with ground testing equipment tender released 2 years ago. This is ramjet engine program in collaboration with russians not entire missile.

    How will this missile compare to over 9000 KM Chinese BVRAAM? You know those which Pakistani and Chinese fanbois cheer by claiming that they can shoot a aircraft while sitting in hanger somewhere in north pole? The one developed to arm J-22 oops J-20.

    Actually the Chinese missile is more like a AWACS killer / Fuel Tanker killer. It has a range of about 350-400 KM and Chinese designed with a view to allow J-20 to hunt support planes sneakily and undo the force multipliers in American air force. But Pakistani fanbois and Chinese fanbois think that this missile can hunt a F-22 / F-35 / Rafael / F-16 / Su-30MKI from a distance of 400 KM.... Only if the dreams of fanbois were currency, The other forum would be a bank.

    Meanwhile, for all the brouhaha, This kind of missile was once considered for Su-30 MKI for using against Pakistani AWACS.

    There missile can do any thing which one can imagine because Imagination has no limit. Their submarine can run at 2400 KMPH in sea.
