Thanks for the reply.
I was prompted to ask you this question as I saw a picture of the Kh 59Mk2 in front of the IN MiG 29K in Russia.
But other than the MiG 29,I have seen this with the Su 30MKI.
I,however do not know whether the Su 30MKI carries the AShM variant or the Mk2 or both.
If it does carry the Kh 59 Mk2,then why go for the Brahmos(it's positives over the Kh are the range and speed) as the Mk2 does seems to be a lot less heavy and at a range of 118Km does not seem so bad!
Mate, what can DRDO & HAL do if IAF has more trust of foreign planes than our home made one?? They again & again change there requirements, they want F-22 at the price of LCA . I will say it a thousand times that LCA still in it's present condition better than many of the planes the IAF has got in it's inventory. Don't you think it can atleast replace the mig 21s in the IAF, is it so worst a plane???

So i'll ask my question here.
Does the Navy's MiG 29K have the capability to launch the Kh 59 MK2 ALCM(100+ Km range)?
If yes,then i assume that we may have procured some already.
Will this capability be added to the IAF MiG 29's??
And how good is this ALCM against other ALCM's?(CEP of 2-3 meters on paper looks good)?
this is not fair, this means IAF trust 60s tech. of Russia more than our present day indegineous tech.?? I think IAF for some reason deliberately don't want to induct these planes for now (hope i prove wrong).
