It is a ramjet powered missile. Nothing fancy. You could turn the Akash into one and call it Pinaka 3 in a few years' time. Seems to be a artillery shell with ramjet for range enhancement. Quite interesting. You don't need a first stage booster since it's an arty shell and will have enough velocity...
