    New TOR missile system M2DT carries 16 missiles.
    We need to reduce weight and should convert akash missiles system to TOR.

    That's an extremely short range missile.
    There's no comparison between Akash & Tor!
    Agreed that Akash Mk1 is bulky & comes with only 3 per carrier, but Akash Mk2 will probably come in packs of 6 (if not eight)

    For range is 15km and akash is 25
    We can reduce weight and create our own tor system

    QRSAM is 25km, Akash is 30km range. This is just conservative figure

    Even if they show interest and place an order will we be able to full fill the order??
    last we heard there was a interest in Brahmos.
    The orders never come just interest.....Though i doubt the capability to meet the orders....

    Seems like an Army Akash Regiment on move. 10 month old video.

    Not certain about one Airforce type trailer. It should be the Radar but the Army version should have been more mobile types.
