Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

Integration of Astra with the Tejas should be taken up after FoC. Perhaps June 2019 timeframe. I think Derby and R-77 (the promised performance), should be the baseline for the Astra MK-1. I hope the Radar deal doesn't mean we have to buy an X number of Derby and proposed Derby-ER as well. I can't ...

Glad that we're saving money for Astra rather than chase Shook-low ji's wet-dreams about a missile that possibly costs more than the radar. (Luftwaffe acquired 150 for $323mln on top of $175 integration costs). That's equivalent to Rs 3500 crores!!
