    I don't see much difficulty in doing this since all the requirements at system level is already there. You have many suitable air surveillance radar and also multi mode radar in production. Astra MK-1 is almost done. Even indigenous RF seeker is coming soon. C2 is not even an issue. High mobility vehicles already there.

    QR SAM project is more of integration challenge than technological. Five years at max.
