    Later with indigenous TurboFan MANIK.

    Maybe they would not be so paranoid if they didn't make enemies worldwide?? Only thing
    saving them is their alliance with USA . But that can change too with a larger muslim
    population in the future.

    What do the Russians eat that they produce such brilliant weapons in such short time with no money. May be we should send our scientists there to learn the magic potion. I mean I have been hearing about pralay which started before zircon project and here we are , pralay waits its first launch and Russia has already field tested its hypersonic weapon. AMCA is still on paper and Russians are about to deploy FGFA. And dont tell me about incentives- putins government is the most corrupt in the world , russian economy is bankrupt and despite that they are literally shredding the west. I really cry for US and Chinese. Their billions of investment in Zumwalt and Aircraft carriers is now waste paper.Russia truly is world number 1 military power by miles.

    What do the Russians have that we dont that allows them to keep making advanced weapons?
    One word answer: Experience.

    Decades of experience as a major arms builder.
    Which idiot told you that?
    We have tried, results weren't very good either.
    India had problem earlier because had no test platform.
    We have now worlds third largest hypersonic velocity simulation and shock tunnel capable of simulations upto Mach 9-12.
    Much more than paper, it's in second phase of development.
    Since last 5 years, it's the news, now timeline goes for 2025, may be they shift for 2030. Who knows.
    Let me tell about how much other countries fund to them like Chinese companies float their banks and China & India paying them billions for getting hand on their tech which they use to fund own projects.
    Are you a Russian? Honestly tell me.

    Actually India had already done more then one static burn test of 20 sec. But a real flight test for 20 sec would be much more challenging. You would be proud to know that India is the only country who has been able to achieve a burnout of 20 sec in multiple tests, although all are static, but never the less a feat in itself.

    @Indx TechStyle ... What you think the wind tunnel of ISRO would be used for? Only to test RLV? Its a hypersonic test facility too... :)

    Zircon will be the parent tech for Indo-Russian Brahmos-2

    Zircon will have a decent RANGE of 600+ kms

    But it would not be hypersonic for the whole range, or would it be?
    Because at Mach 6 it would travel at nearly 2 km/sec and for 1000 km it can't sustain a burnout of 500 seconds. So it is more of a Supersonic+ Hypersonic variant I believe.

    Hypersonic Glide Vehicle.....

    Thats what I am saying. ISRO has build up the hypersonic test tunnel and its not only to test the reentry of the RLV. :):)

    That is the point that it will maintain 6M on 1000km - speed converts into range :)

    What is the burnout rate achieved by Zircon in test? Most of hypersonic test till date had achieved a burnout of 15 to 20 sec. At M 6 it would mean covering a distance of 50 km at best. Since Zircon has been termed as CM, so it means it does have a air breathing ScramJet engine as opposed to Rocket powered conventional engine. So how on earth it has achieved a burnout rate of nearly 500 second on scramjet engine?

    That burnout was achieved in Soviet times, but for much bigger and havier prototype missiles. Now the task was to minify it enough for real use and develop plasma-penetrating communication and datalink systems, not engines.

    1. You mean on second page of paper:biggrin2:
    Do you know that even T. Suvern raju can't tell you the final configuration of mythical AMCA let alone the time timelines. LOL.

    2. Anything is better than a paper plane.lol

    And I was made to believe that India is ahead of Russia in cruise missile technology since now we have Nirbhay:confused1:
    Well at least in test phase!!!.
    Wait what??? 3 out of four were failure:hmm:
    So what? We are still ahead, at least on YouTube.:yawn:
