Re: Indian Missiles News & Discussions - 17 Dec 2018

Booster was at least today to carry the missile to required altitude and speed (as if mimicking a fighter plane) and then let go as a plane will let go sfdr.
On plane do we need a booster? From ramjet to work is there a high initial velocity? Don’t know
