Indian Missile BVRAAM Fails Trials Yet Again

Indian plans to produce a beyond-visual-range missile that matches French, Russian and Israeli air-to-air missiles have suffered a setback. Despite a reshuffle in DRDO and inking of the MTCR, the Astra failed yet another test.

New Delhi (Sputnik) − The Indian Air Force suffered a heart ache when its home-grown beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) failed to perform during a trial held in Balasore on Wednesday. India’s First BVR Missile Astra on Verge of Commercial Production Sources said the 'Astra missile' exploded immediately after it was fired from an aircraft. The missile lost velocity within seconds and banked sharply downwards. It exploded on the eastern coast of Odisha. Astra is being developed by India's Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). © AFP 2016/ MIGUEL MEDINA India Coaxes France Into Selling its Air-to-Air Missile Equipped Rafale The Modi Government had made top level reshuffles in DRDO in order to make it performance oriented. India has also joined the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) which gives it greater latitude to import missile technologies and components. Indian scientists had informed the government in last week of November about their intention to soon test fire the indigenous BVRAAM so that commercial production could start quickly for fitment on MiG-29, Mirage-2000 and the indigenous Tejas. The project has already been delayed for more than four years due to technological challenges and delay in availability of critical components. Last December, scientists had successfully tried the Astra's ECCM (electronic counter-counter measure) features that counter the enemy's attempt to jam its operation. Scientists claim that the 60-km plus missile has high maneuverability and the capability to engage and destroy aerial targets at supersonic speeds. An IAF Sukhoi-30 MKI had fired the Astra during the 'Iron Fist' fire-power demonstration in the deserts of Rajasthan this March. Undeterred by the setback, DRDO scientists are also developing a more powerful BVRAAM Astra Mk 2 with a range of 100 km.

WOW !!!!!

Making it sound like a bomb blew up in DRDO and DRDO is finished.
Inking of MTCR has got nothing to do with Astra neither is shuffling of officers. Its the same scientists working on Astra as before. MTCR was never in the equation and it won't be.

It's a damn glitch, a glitch that will be worked out. It's not a big deal. I'd say thank God we found this before it goes in production, that would make things complicated. Astra will be one fine missile once in production.

Read below,



Next time please go through the entire thread before responding. It only makes you seem silly.
I was commenting on the dismal performance of your S&T sector. Not that our performance is stellar.

Nopes just stating the facts as it is. Now some proofs if it is required.

You are a strange man. First you misread a post and come running flailing your minuscule manhood around only because you are insecure to the bone. Then when told that it wasn't directed towards you or your desperate kind you keep on with the act in hopes that you wont be recognised as a fool only to further demonstrate that you are anything but.

I'm trying real hard not to stoop to your level mate. Grow some class. Otherwise, everyone knows that there is plenty of crap in India that I can mention here. No, really, there is crap literally everywhere in India.....................I failed.


ps: You should also educate yourself a little on what patents really are. 97% of them are useless. Just another avenue where you can embarrass yourself less next time.

Couldn't continue with the pathetic act? No worries.

Anyway, I'm guessing you were never educated in basic economics or finance or business.

Most ideas are worthless ideas, no matter how much you feel proud of them. Like Modi's idea of isolating Pakistan, hehe.......

Genius, we are talking about patents filed by Indians, mostly from Indian MNCs filed in the USPTO.

Anyway, what is 3% of 15? That's the number of patents your country has filed there.

If I wanted to, I could've talked about the patents filed in our own patent office.

Good, also gives you the percentage of brain cells you're using.

Are you reading impaired? Or is it thought impaired? Go read the links please. As much as I try I just can't bring myself to arguing retarded-ly concocted claims born out of a desperate attempt at not looking like an ignoramus.

Any more trash ? Hey look Indian firms from varied backgrounds, from pharma to engineering are taking efforts to have their 'worthless' patents filed in USPTO. :lol:
