Re: Indian Missile Technology Discussion

I do believe that planning for the worst case scenario should always be a priority. In that context, when discussing Nirbhay and SSGN, I had stated that the SSGN would come after the SSBN. Though not stated, by the same logic A3/A3SL should take priority over any other missile development and if we ...

The IAF version of BrahMos will be lighter than the Naval version which weighs three tonnes. But the range will be the same. The IAF version will have an improved booster and a modified nose cap.
