Why do we assume these missiles are for Pakistan. Imagine the two serious customers right now ( Argentina & Malaysia) both want the aircraft for significant maritime role.

This combo will can be a potential deal maker.
Makes sense for Argentine Indeed. Is Malaysia in good terms with China to sell them such weapon. However, we didn't assume this missile for Pakistan but Indians sources were reporting back then in 2018. However, the assumption can lead to our own potential contender of similar kind of missiles one as Pakistan Navy hinted and so in AAM category for PAF only.

HD1 developed by China-based Guangdong Hongda Blasting Company. Hongda is currently participating in AirShowChina-2021. Back in 2018, it was reported by only Indian sources that Pakistan might procure HD-1, a direct competitor or better than BrahMos. An airborne ramjet super-sonic ship killer missile.

Not a single launch video of HD 1 found on YouTube :(
Can you explain some parameters of HD 1 as according to @Dazzler Our supersonic missile also has DNA of HD 1.
Where it stands in front of Yakhont/Brahmose.
Wikipedia says it cruises at 15 km altitude.this is huge altitude for a cruise missile.is not it?

No details available except for media claims that HD-1 is superior to BrahMos and that's it. There is no doubt that Pakistan homegrown solution will have help from Friend(s) either for PN or PAF AAM.

Depends on whether it is based on a missile still in development in China, could be a joint collaboration.
Why will they do a joint venture with us when they already have many supersonic missiles in service?
I still think our missile is indigenous.of course some help can be taken from them.if our missile resembles with HD 1 ,no problem.our engineers may have inspected many already present supersonic missile concepts and then they built on one of them.most likely our missile is completely indigenous.

'Current' is the key word. The new R-77 have already been ordered and Astra is also on the way. Pakistan should contract the Russians for some of the new R-77s itself too so as to avoid any surprises.
Absolutely, I was surprised that the i-derby did not pan out as well for India. The new R-77 isn’t a concern but the Astra is untested/unknown which is the spoiler in the mix. However, whatever is known of all of these weapons Pakistani JF-17s and any future assets planned will continue to out-stick them thanks to the Chinese(who are planning for the US and so designing to that threat)
