    They can be called MANPADS as you rightly pointed out but maybe our forces designate them as VSHORADS.

    as they say "what's there in the name".

    Man you are always very pessimistic when it comes to DRDO. If they are as incompetent as you think they are then who developed all those Strategic Missiles, Radars, Electronic warfare, sonars and a lot of systems that have already been deployed in Armed Forces?

    First - Vishnu Som should stop be a scared of everything - and ask one question ie which variant of the HJ8 Missile is the PA operating? since they have been license built the same ie the Baktar-Shikan with 3 Km range since the 1990


    Second - Why can't he doesn't he do his homework (credit to @Agent_47 )

    He is correct this is a naive decision. We have 30,000+ requirement for 3rd generation ATGM. They should have ordered Spike while indian version matures. Chinese has already made HJ-12 operational, it will with pakistan soon enough. Kalyani believed MoD and even started their production facility. This was perfect opportunity for private sector to enter.

    The problem is of course money. MoD asked for full ToT like we did with Milan ATGM. Israeli asked for exuberant sum and here we are.

    We give billions to isrealis for acquiring seeker tech and after that we want to import missiles from them when we have better propulsion tech available to us with better charge to thrust ratios. Is it not funny? We are the only nation which can be so stupid to pay a country twice for inferior weapon system. How wud you rate missiles which have same seeker tech but one has longer range and another lower?
    There was no problem with SPIKE till DRDO jumped in. NOW IA is again fooling itself and the nation for their love for imported stuff. Russian maal hee chalta hai, weapons hon yaa two laundi.

    Its consistent with earlier reports of Israelis jacking up the price. And Israelis couldn't say anything without actual communication which would be in process.

    Today’s Editor's Choice On Govt Cancels Spike Missile Deal (US $ 500 Million) With Israel, Set to Make in India... The decision to cancel the deal was after considering that a foreign ATGM import would have a negative impact on DRDO's programme for indigenous development…. PM Modi becomes the first Indian PM to visit the Jewish nation Israel....

    You mistook my post, I didn't target you personally. It's just my observation that there is a USA phobia among few members.

    Though my post was slightly influenced after reading your post. But it wasn't personal.:biggthumpup:
