Right Now,IAF has enough lot of r-77 BVRAAMs in its inventory as buffer stock (I personally get this info from IAF officer), you may cross check with your sources (which you can) and they can use them whenever they want. Right now, IAF is using R-27ER/ET as the prime BVRAAM. But I'm agreed with you, IAF will have SFDR (once completed) and Astra as prime BVRAAM in future. Anyways, some latest pics (2016) Please help me to identify the AAM? For R-73, Really?, should I take it as bullying act or a suggestion... Bcoz I can't debate on baseless and illogical quotes. As far as my experience matters , my previous project was for su-30mki MFD design but can't share present one due to sensitivity issues. Anyways, if he has enough knowledge than I'm eager to have BrahMos-NG on mk1 and mk1a. Good Day.
