    A Russian firm will disclose information about a new mobile short-range air defense system based on the Strelets launcher at the upcoming Aero India 2011 air show.

    "The [Kolomna-based] Engineering Design Bureau will present for the first time details of a new ultra short-range air defense system based on the Strelets launcher for the portable Igla missiles," Russia's Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation said in a statement on Friday.

    The Strelets multiple launcher unit was developed for use with the 9M39 Igla (NATO SA-18 "Grouse") and Igla-1 (NATO SA-16 "Gimlet") missiles. It provides an automatic remote launch capability in either single-round or salvo modes when mounted on various launch platforms.

    Aero India-2011, which will be held in the southern city of Bangalore on February 9-13, will attract the record number of over 600 manufacturers, vendors and suppliers from 63 countries.

    Russia will be represented by 35 companies, including MiG, Sukhoi, Almaz-Antei and Engineering Design Bureau.

    Did they give a live demonstration? We must test this system on indigenous HAL Tejas.

    Its an air defence system. meaning its a surface to air missile & not air to air. therefore it can't be tested on-board a tejas..

    Why the hell does he wanna shoot down an LCA?!? There's only seven of em flying right now.. Anyways there are other better options available for testing an air defence system. Also the ability of taking down an LCA would not really make it qualify as an advanced missile.
