Yes, and the horizontal stabilizer.

But what buffoonry is going on?!!! It seems like a clean room where the technicians have to wear full body aprons, gloves, face and hair masks! And then 100s are people are allowed near the structures. The minister his laying his hands directly on the assembly table and another smartass is happy to be on camera!

Vips, great find. So the day the Astra clears its user trial, I was wondering what key tech do we need for a LRAAM/long range SAM follow on, and the first thing that came to mind was a high power seeker. And, there you go, building blocks being put in place. :)

There are two BPJ that Army is procuring which have Level III+ protection. One by DRDO, ToTed to MKU

https://pib.gov.in/newsite/PrintRelease ... lid=171391

Another by SMPP, which even claims to have NIJ Level IV capability. The news items claim its SMPP's inhouse development.

http://smgroupindia.com/content/smpp-wi ... logy-award

Previous to that, When MP was RM, there was a emergency purchase of BPJ from TASL as well, I remember.

DRDO chief urges for indigenous defence production.

He said that the DRDO had come up with many technologies in the past few years and developed a complete range of indigenous radar systems.

We have made our ballistic missile defence system. We are capable of building any radar and have developed sonar (a technique that uses sound propagation to navigate,) that is fitted on ships. In fact, imported submarines are now fitted with indigenous sonar today, he said.

Reddy said India is in the league of countries such as the US, Russia and China that developed high precision missile system.

The Indian Air Force had issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for around 83 Light Combat Aircraft (LCA)-Mk1A aircraft at an estimated cost of Rs 45,000 crore, he said adding that ten out of 83 aircrafts will be the two-seater, which will be used for training.

This is in addition to the earlier IAF order of 40, bringing the total to 123 LCA Tejas, he added.

Discounts for early booking of space by exhibitors

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh launched the website of 11th edition of DefEXpo, to be held in Lucknow from 05 - 08 February, 2020, here today.

Confirmation from that SM Group produces 120 & 125 MM sabot and hesh rounds. Also 155MM rounds.

LCH is heavier than ALH!

Pinaka is a L&T product now! L&T is now a big player in defense. If only GoI gives some ship orders!

ATAGS is BF product.

No AESA radars or sonar been sold in the open market. No Barak8 SAM either.

Yeah, better than all done by OFB, the lot which were on strike, when Pak leaders were openly threatening war.

OFB should only be given to fill up the explosives.

I think Bharat Forge is a good option for making the penetrators and even assembling the entire round.

Two private firms have stepped up to make explosives and assemble ammunition. The days of OFB blackmailing seem to be numbered.
