From NRaoâ€™s post:
India is attempting to field a single missile design and has so far only demonstrated a comparatively basic but nonetheless noteworthy ability to put two missiles -- both of which are controlled by Indian scientists -- in the same chunk of three-dimensional space at the same time
A desperate attempt at playing down a VERY difficult thing to do which even the mighty unkil has been able to do only passably well after many years and billions of $$. For those westerners who do know just how difficult this is, it really must rankle that the bloody Indians did it right the first time for 1/1000th the cost.
Even to a non-technical person, it should be clear that even if the missiles flew in previously known trajectories, it would be like trying to make two toothpicks held in ones hands hit each other head-on
in a quick swipe with your eyes closed.
I seriously doubt that DRDO scientists are stupid enough to stake their futures and claim this to be entirely indigenous when it is not. And specially if they are already under attack by the moron press.
This is not a Patriot/Arrow/s300 and the only reason it survived and was successful is because it was kept as far away as possible (and will continue to be) from the Rabinder Singhs of the world.
