If foreign maal malfunctions it is because of Indian shells or poor training. If Indian maal malfunctions it is because of poor product or design. Either way it is SDRE fault. I just hope they don't scrap purchases because of this barrel bursting.

I dont think Shaurya is as accurate as cruise missiles. Missiles like Nirbhay will have CEP of ~10m or even less. Shaurya may have CEP of ~50m or more given it is a ballistic missile and its long range. This makes a big difference and Sharuya will not be very effective with a conventional warhead. I...
