Don't think India will risk it's defence ties with Israel for sale of few missiles.
You believe Egypt is a threat to Israel? :lol:

History has nothing to do with it, it is all about the present and future, Egypt has been a good lapdog since quite sometime now, any such procurements are aimed towards Turkey.

Yeah I read this news earlier today. Sounds great. I like that the EAF is not only expanding it's variety of weapons packages, but it's also expanding its sources and going back to one of the original partners in India. When was the last time? When we were sourcing parts for the engine of our domestic fighter jet in the 60's. That's a long time ago. This is long time coming and I've been talking about doing a lot more with India for a while now because you folks have a wide variety of fighters and make it work well and so does the EAF which could benefit from a partnership like that.

Looking forward to seeing those mounted on the new Su-35s although they can mount them on the MiG-29Ms as well.

East Asian countries are showing interest in the land based version due to their limited numbers in fighter jets. Once the Brahmos (NG) Mini becomes operational, that could be offered to several air forces and could be inducted on any aircraft irrespective of the size without the need to strengthen the center pylon

You do know Indian air force personal where present in the Egyptian base when bombed in 67 right.
This is not 1967 and India didn't had the level of defence ties with Israel back then.
History has nothing to do with it, it is all about the present and future, Egypt has been a good lapdog since quite sometime now, any such procurements are aimed towards Turkey.
Egypt had been an adversary and still is. A capability acquired today can be a threat tomorrow.

Interesting. There's always improvement on the first system to be introduced in any capacity. There are always times where that first system is put to use and ways to improve on it or modify it or even make different varieties of that same system are introduced in the following sample or in this case, the next generation. So I'm not surprised by that.

Although there was mention that this is actually old news, about a year ago this EAF interest in the Brahmos missile was made. So not sure about the timing of this event TBH. One thing for sure, you don't see the EAF mounting a lot of weapons on their aircraft. They seem to go the "lightweight" route more often than not.

There are actually quite a few iterations of the Brahmos that came up or coming up along with increased Indian content in the missile. Since 2019, the production models come with an Indian seeker, booster, electronics & air-frame while the only Russian component is the Ramjet. Infact, the Russian ramjet was retained since this is still a JV in the end

Also, the initial versions were of 290km range prior to our entry in MTCR but soon after, the 450km versions came out. It was more like there was a range limiter to the 450km ones. All current production models are of 600km and work is going on to develop 800 & 1500km variants along with Brahmos Mini for fighter jets and a hypersonic variant
