AS-20 was to be license produced at BDL. AS-30 was finally bought for Mirages.
Glad you recall something of those days.
AS 20 / AS 30 / Martel
I have been hearing about IAF having these ASMs since past few years/decades. But I have not yet seen a single pic of these ASMs, relating to IAF. Usually when a system has been is use for quite some time, it appears on the Republic Day parade. Till date I have seen only AS 7 and Sea Eagle displayed during Republic Day parade. AS 7 was supposed to be used with MiG 23BN / MiG 27ML. But when I have spoken to a couple of pilots of MiG 23BN / MiG 27ML they seem to know nothing about AS 7 !!!!
Information (or the lack) on the ASMs of IAF hase ben my per peeve ever since I joined BR, long long long time ago.
Only recently have we seen some pics of Kh 31 and Kh 59, with SU 30.
I understand, form reliable sources (i.e. my mother-in-law's second cousin's third wife's fourth brother-in-law's paan wallah's milk supplier's servant's brother;s .................) that IAF uses the Israeli Spice on Mirages.
Just for info : talk with any IAF man of SU 30 or Mirages, start talking about ASMs, he clams up tight and immediately!!
Wud be happy to enlighten myself on this topic
