    TOT not needed. No need to have two similar systems unnecessarily - especially if one is from own country. Buying Spike does not mean immediate delivery - that would take time as well.

    VEM technologies 2.75-inch guided imaging rocket for surface to surface use (a model of the mobile launcher with raised optronic mast is visible in the picture)

    and maybe air to surface use later on

    2.75-inch laser-guided rocket.jpg

    pras*un seng*upta mentions it as a laser guided rocket which i disagree because the picture clearly mentions guided imaging rocket

    and he says it is a air to surface rocket which i also disagree since a model of the mobile launcher gives away its intended use as of now, later on maybe it will have air to ground variant.

    an unidentified guided rocket from VEM technologies

    it looks to have a imaging seeker and most probably an air to ground rocket , not sure though

    caliber 2.75 inch maybe again not sure

    guys is this Stand-off Anti-tank Guided Missile (SANT) ?

    frankly i dont know just speculating here.

    but i am curious why they have opted for imaging seeker , something that is used to seek out and lock onto hostile land vehicles (not necessarily though).

    It is good the private company VEM technologies developing missiles for the first time. I hope indian army will induct these missiles in mass numbers.

    Is it Private company in reality or just a dummy company opened by RSS or RAW to bypass cumbersome government procedures to hire talent? I can't believe that DRDO takes 3-4 years to develop MPATGM even after development of NAG while this company pops out of nowhere and gets everything done so quickly.

    They must have got ToT from DRDO which they used to develop this.

    can anybody identify this missile from vem technologies

    it has lateral thrusters midbody, fore fins and rear fins

    i am no expert, but i have till date seen lateral thrusters on ATGMs only

    also rear section seems to be disposable though

    I feel it may be a MANPAD to replace IGLA

    no offence but i doubt that it is a manpad , but lets us all keep all options open

    most probably a stand off ATGM in my limited understanding

    again i am no expert but the rear section looks like a booster and sustainer ? to get the necessary altitude and then cruise speed in the intended direction (rear fins) , mid flight rear section drops off and the lateral thrusters kicks in to go for the target and engage in end game maneuvers like top attack or direct attack

    lets see what others have to say on this

    Helicopter launched ATGM. You have missed the launcher which is along with it. With its rear end booster, it would be too heavy for any Man portable missile system.

    Its old enough to have make components and subcomponents of every individual missile system of India. Its just like what Kalyani is for artillery of India.

    i never meant it to be a man portable ATGM, too big and unwieldy to be one

    and i myself alluded to the booster and i was thinking more in lines of a vehicle borne long range stand off ATGM

    and as you alluded it might be a helicopter launched ATGM , it is a very strong possibility and i am also inclined to believe it together with the equal possibility of it being a vehicle borne long range stand off ATGM.

    lets hope we get to see both versions of it or atleast one of them inducted into the armed forces.

    My assumption of it being a helicopter fired ATGM is based entirely on the launcher seen in the pic along with the missile (remove before flight) :).

    But yeah, it could be a vehicle fired system too.

    you are referring to the contraption which has the (remove before flight) red strip ?

    well that seems to be the tail section of an LGB , part of an add on kit maybe
    vem pavilion had a display of dissembled sub systems / components of LGB on display

    and that dont look like a launcher to me

    lol now i am confused, better shoot a email to vem technologies for clarification :)
    and you are elected to do the honors :)

    Hell yeah........... I thought it to be a launcher, but now seeing it again, it doesn't seems to be one. The side panels are folded wings. As you mentioned, it could be tail section of some standoff weapon system. Anyway CLGM was long due and most of its ground test were been done. So.........................

    Anyway its my bad luck that I am from the part of country where we have to satisfy ourselves with arms display organised by forces now and then. So do miss out on all these developments. :biggrin2:

    It is newly developed ATGM Developed by VEM Technologies. They named it as Jasmine.

    It is also an ATGM with very similar design to Konkurs.. with four balancing nozzles in the middle and 4-4 directing and balancing fins for a stable flight.

    Rome can't be built in a day for sure..

    Right now they have pretty much stable market on India.
