    The Hindu : States / Andhra Pradesh : DRDO plans advanced missiles

    Very interesting if the DRDO can pull off the feat of 300km range SAM's in reasonable time, we can look forward to a truly world class SAM system. In my view this syetm can be rapidly developed using the PAD and AAD as a base on which to build upon.

    yeah that SAM is going to give sleepless night to our enemy. AWAC, air tankers and transport aircraft of enemy will be large target for it.

    The Air to surface missile they are talking about is most probably the air launched Brahmos, the AAM of 300km range might be an Astra with a booster attached.
