Production rate : Aiming for 16 to 20 per year.


LCA service ceiling is 15 km max speed 1.6 Mach


FoC clearance will not come in the way of ramping up the production since the initial order is for IoC config.

Threat to any Naval Vessel will not be determined by whether the missile is operated by friendly or not.

If Brahmos or any of its version(russian) end up with Iran/Syria etc then will it change the idea ????.

The threat are checked for friendly & foe all alike.

The main reason for Barak 8 is the Seeker tech which we still lag in.

Qatar only have 12 Dassault Mirage 2000 as a fighter in their air-force.

Even if they sell their only fighters it will be only after 2018 when they start getting Rafale.
By the time we will be receiving rafale/LCA/FGFA???? .So its of no use for IAF.
