India tested k-77 which is new Russian missile with it's own aesa seeker and range much greater than our amraam. India also bought Barak-8 Israeli missiles.The Future of BVRs will be changing in the future as the new 5th Gen A/C will be the part of Airforces.. Good info on these Missiles
Hmm but IAF MKIs Dodged 5 AIM120-C5s as per IAF.Nothing comes close to AIM-120C-5/7/D AMRAAM in today''s age.
There are a few classified characteristics of this missile which make it lethal AF. First and foremost, it has its own jamming capability. which doesn't let the RWR of target to function. Furthermore in the stage 3/final stage of flight. It reaches speeds in excess of Mach 6/7/8. Impossible to evade from those distances.
Bhai.The sam is 40km , air to air much more due to altitude , aircraft ke
One possible gain is to go for a 4x2 configuration for the JF-17. 4 PL-15s and 2 Turkish WVR-BVR hybrid.Bhai.
Why are we looking hither and thither for SAMs andAAMs. We need to stick to one family for fleet wide commonality. This will then allow us to manufacture them in house. Once we start herethere maybe elements that we might need to borrow from her and there to make our product a aturdy one. We already have the US and the Chinese family of missiles. Rathwr than increasing the supply base and maiing your invwntory more complicated it is better to stick to these 2 suppliers. Even if we went Turkey way whatare we gaining? The US will not allow us to integrate Turkish weaponry on the 16s so what do we gain.
