    Yes Guidance is changed a bit with nose cone.. wingspan slightly trimmed by 10 cm.. heard fins also shaped up slightly..

    need actual images to really compare.. naked eyes and angles wont help much...will try and see if i get few..

    Hopefully yes.. will ask for a confirmation and get back on this..

    Not yet tested to full potential.. much slower speed used at approx 0.6 (much lower than 0.8) and limited flight time to cover ~650 km

    It will be slowly ramped up to its full range of 1500 Km..

    I don't think so ..... the navarea was removed immediately after the nirbhay test ..... so the chances of further nirbhay tests are nill .
