Re: Indian Missiles and Munitions Discussion - June'14

There are two things to it .
1.On a saturation attack multiple missiles being fired @ akash to saturate it.
2.The Akash battery should even be saved from HARM's
3.Low level ones can be used for ones that akash miss when saturated.
4.It can be used to save batteries from HARMs and other mortar attack
