    DRDO and private companies will enhance further production of missile production in Indua as Israel's deal is scrapped.

    Konkur-M

    And Kornet E are enough to meet any current threat

    Konkurs has range of 70m to 4 KM
    Armour penetration of 880 mm Vs RHA (behind era)


    And Kornet -E has range of 100m to 5.5 KM has penetration of 1200/1300mm vs RHA behind Era

    Russian ATGMs are proven there metal against one of the world best armoured tanks

    M1A2 and merkava 3 armour penetrated by kornet multiple times

    Pakistan mainstay al- kahlid has pathetic armour protection

    550 mm against Kinetic Vs 660 against heat rounds

    As of know we have enough to meat our main adversary PA

    Posting on indiandefence.com is becoming a risky business. Majority is made of fake news discussion or the other majority made up on d!ck measuring contests over each others caste and religion.

    In India, fake news is a norm, and peddling it and perpetuating it here, is increasingly becoming a norm

    Look at the article posted by @Zarvan .... yeah Bakhtar Shikan outranges Indian ATGMs LOL

    you are one of the few posters who made me sign up here. the other forum is full of tripe and jingoism. I guess you are (were?) a serving officer. Hencce it will not behove you to walk away in the face of some irrelevant posts. Perhaps those posts are a deliberate attempt to derail discussions here and diminish the forum's credibility. It needs old hands like you to mount a rear guard action and since you are an admin, to ban those who post tripe and bring sanity to the forum.

    Hence, just a request, don't quit.....instil order instead.

    Not quitting.

    Point is .. members have to learn to walk away from bullshit. And our own media is full of that ....

    At times feels pointless to even respond. I expect members would have reached that level by now to sift through mountains of nonsense being spewed :(

    Will definitely linger till I find a better platform ....

    Kalyani's JV with Rafael is for getting workshare from BDL which had the lead integrator role in the Spike MR license assembly. I would suggest that Kalyani should now be given the opportunity to do the same for the domestic MPATGM which BDL will integrate.

    That are not some reports, but the reports since UPA2 till now. The replacement obviously starts with the older systems, but it always was meant as a replacement.

    That's what happens when journalists move from research and well written articles, to 140/280 character opinions rants. He was a good source in the past with his articles, now he is just naive to believe we could suddenly build everything on our own.

    He is correct here. BDL was lead integrator and Kalyani making parts.

    It don't matter how many reports. Its the common journalist logic nothing else. It would be replacing earlier Milan variants not Milan 2T or Korkur as you said. Long term plan was always indian third generation system.

    I read yesterday that Rafael haven't got any official infos on the scrapping. So let's hope that there is still a chance.

    I'm talking about his indigenous projects wave now.

    So we agree that it's a replacement, at least that's what it suppose to be. Apart of the problems for IA, it's insane how the government is flushing down Indias reputation even further down, as an unreliable 3rd world country.
