    Really? A missile can fly as ballistic missile and cruise missile in the same time? WOW!!!!!!!!!

    I suggest, next time don't outsource this to a high school student, a university student can make it look like real.

    Sorry, I can't stop laughing. Whoever makes these up, please go back to learn what a missile need to do all of these and have a close look of the slim body of K-15.

    Shaurya/Sagarika or K family missiles are perhaps some of the most advanced missiles in the world, it has demonstrated everything they claim of it from hypersonic flight at 40-50 km at speeds of over mach 7.5 out to a range of over 700km. The other flight trajectories allow it to reach targets over 1500 km away as well. It is an ideal hybrid weapon.

    Umm. K15 is a quasi ballistic missile, it doesn't leaves atmosphere, hence cruises at hypersonic speed within atmosphere. And yes, it has a BGRV warhead.

    List of Shaurya/ K15 Sagarika warheads.
    ***RV Mk. 4 = ~180kg mass = 17kT FBF
    ***RV Mk. 5 = ~340kg mass = 50kT FBF or 200kT TN
    ***RV Mk. 6 = ~550kg mass = 150kT FBF (TN mode yield unknown)
    Different warheads for different strategic purposes.

    K-15 is already tested & demonstrated it's performance and Inducted .

    A shaped trajectory is an ordinary tech can be used in any ballistic missile to increase the difficulty of enemy's radar detection. But it doesn't turn a ballistic missile to cruise missile. Different engine, different structure and different control system.

    Is that kind of chart a DRDO chief puts on? Look at the horizontal axis and vertical axis, I am not sure if he just outsource this to a high school student.

    Well, his chart said so- keep flying at the same height over 700km within atmosphere. Until today, only cruise missile can do that.

    The point here is that I do not consider K 15 a ballastic missile. None of the K series missile is ballastic.

    Look closely at that slide it carries all the more pertinent information that goes along with a launch of a BGRV - Speed & depth of sub, apogee of K-15 etc. Students who learn these things, do not need to be told in every slide that the scenario is not to scale. That much intelligence is expected.

    You mean Chairman Mao already used PowerPoint 58 years ago? A big news!
    Or are you suggesting your top scientists copy from something 58 years ago? Again, a big news!

    Take a look of the video of K15 test, it is a ballistic missile with ROCKET ENGINE.
