So it seems like we are ordering the same R-77 (not even R-77-SD which RuAF uses) or is it DDM @ work? Any ideas why IAF is not considering SD variant?

Now Shiv Aroor on Livefist twitter feed is also saying that today's HSTDV test was not a success.

No, India's first test of a hypersonic air vehicle was not a success -- but flight testing an advanced capability system is fraught with risk. Our full report on gains, scenarios and what comes next
