If i believe my eyes and heard many heavy-weight BRites discussion the very same LAH or LCH a year or 2 back, there was an apache type mockup, but much smaller.. It had the radome or radar nose just below chin. I can't believe I can't google it out.. I am sure, BR admins might have "cached" one for ...

Re: Time to rethink NFU

I have a vague feeling that agni-3 would be the 5k {high payload} - 8k range {low payload}. spinned version public format would be 3k to 5k. say: 5k for all demo purposes. quite good enough to satisfy our doctrine. I hope agni platform could one day become a modular missile system, where at each sta...
