    Intial Astra used Agat Seeker

    Next batch Indian manufactered Agat Seeker with Some Russian components

    Ultimate aim is completely indigenise Agat Seeker

    Simultaneously DRDO programme is running for completely indigenous seeker

    Pvt sector also offering their seekers with various levels of indigenisation

    India does not use SARH only ARH in all DRDO programmes

    We can replace MF-Star radar with our very own Arudhra radar.

    For your second thought about our capability, we already tested Ducted ramjet in 2015 successfully

    Barak 8 is completely different in terms of speed. It's Mach 2 with its primary pulse, and reaches beyond Mach 6 when second pulse is used during terminal stage.
