    It is a low range missile I don't think it will be deployed in large numbers ...instead a QR missile being developed by DRDO at 30km range will be mass deployed by us. We are also developing a 200km long range anti aircraft missile and it was told by previous DRDO chief more than two years ago. As far as the indigenizing of Brahmos is concerned if we could indigenize its engine then we an easily upgrade its range beyond 1000km .

    Wasn't the 30 KM QR missile canceled....We were developing Maitri with France Right..We had some thing with the Israelis too I guess....What is going on!?.. Can you please update me on this....!?
    I have heard very very little about the DRDO QRSAM....



    The 200Km one....Is it the one based on the Astra or the AAD !?


    A ground version of Astra (with a booster) can be a 50-100 Km SAM.....


    Have we indigenized the Astra Seeker yet.....!?The Propulsion is Desi. I guess....The seeker is perhaps the last part of the puzzle...

    QRSAM is back and this time with its own AESA FCR . 200km Missile will be improved version of AAD IMO for tighter g maneuvers .ASTRA seeker is being developed along with other seekers as DRDO now has its own seeker specific facility and ...... no Astra can't do 50km air defense role... from ground it can do only 20-30 km but QRSAM will be all new as it will also defend from LACM and Air launched munition like ARMs and CMs . QRSAM will be produced in very high number as much as our Anti tank missiles .

    They already use a lot of Russian weaponry albeit without ToT.

    I think we should transfer the design of a frigate capable of carrying Brahmos based on Kamorta class hull with ToT. They already have a very good shipbuilding industry.

    Nope .Its not ,Each and every strategic move should be double checked.
    Chinese are very powerful than us in economy and for some extent military and technology .
    So every steps should be very careful.

    I guess the 'MIRV' & 'SLCM' made our planners rethink their policy.

    How many times was this move checked, a thousand times? And please, we are punching far below our weight. China doesn't have the capacity to, yet they are taking on virtually the entire world. THAT is stupidity. But India is in more than enough of a position to take on China, when you take years to "double check" what should have been a common sense move, it loses its influence and impact.

    Not to mention, the Vietnamese themselves were allegedly becoming impatient and frustrated with how lackadaisical India's approach was. What kind of a signal does that send to all the smaller SE Asian countries who are looking to us for support and leadership against China?

    We will keep sitting around double checking our moves and by the time we look up the Chinese will have us in a real fix. So let's not cover for India's lethargic approach to strategy by giving it an artificial veneer of wisdom, referring to it as "double checking."

    DRDO is already overstretched with full of defence programs .
    ICBM development itself sucks out their 80% resources .So latest ATAGS type development would be helpful.
    Involve private partners .

    That's what we are good at. That's what we have been doing for the past 70 years.

    Agreed.This time Chinese gone too far .
    They still didnt get it .
    There is a reason for Trumps phone call to Modi .
    Chinese are setting their own trap.Even though Russians are on their side ,it is not an eternal friendship .Infact Putin is actually suspicious towards China .Trump is looking for good relations with Russia .If that succeeds,Russia will scale down their engagements with China .
    Thanks to the Chinese own track record ,they cant be trusted .
    US is already a established enemy of China .They should have concentrate on them instead of poking nose in our turf .
    Previous UPA govt ,tried their best soft approach but they thinks it was our weakness.
    They still didnt left their attitude even after the new govt .
    There is a rumour that Chinese were also tried to destroy our economy through FICN .Since Pak cant do such a mammoth job quickly ,Chinese tried to do so. That was one factor of our Novv 18 decision .Dont know its veracity .
    And mere mass awarness of Indian media affected their Deepavali business .

    Anyway recent claims of Chinese mouth piece and subsequent Pak testing of SLCM and MIRV initiated the show down .

    But absurdity from there part can easily see here .Their enemy
    is mighty US ,not us .And due to some delusions they also dragged us .

    Vietnam is the perfect choice .They are best in dealings with China .And China is going to see another responsible power in ASEAN that can easily influence the dynamics in there

    Yeah apart from Big missiles DRDO must develop just lab tech and not lab TDs . Product development must be sourced to others be it PSUs or privates.

    Wrong .
    Chinese began to assertive after it crossess their economic and technical milestone .They are 12 trillion$ economy .And they can do more than us .
    From 1991 to 2010 they were silent in their approach .

    And criminal negligence was prevailed during UPA rule.
    Agreed .
    But this govt is doing their best
