there are two issues here:
1. "unlocking" all missiles to make them extended range
2. "upgrading" older blocks to block-3 to enhance/change mission profiles
the first regiment was block-1. the second and third were block-2. the fourth (being inducted) is block-3.
with news of I corps (that presumably has the third regiment, i.e. block-2) now firing block 3, one asks:
- has the third one (presumably with I corps) been upgraded?
- or have some elements of I corps changed their geographic disposition (this is why i have used the word "change" above)?
if it is the first, then maybe all the regiments are in the process of being upgraded to block-3. that would explain the location of one of brahmos corp facilities that i have agonized over for some time.
if it is the second, that would be interesting.
