I am a fanboy when it comes to indigenous defence products so I'll keep my fingers crossed for an XR-SAM that is in the S-400 class. Maybe it'll be as @IndianHawk said in #714 , we'll slowly evolve XR-SAM to greater ranges and maybe it will evolve into a system comparable to S-500 in the future. Optimism is all I have. About the network-centricity though, I think IACCS is already online no? And its going to recieve a boost once GSAT-7A is launched sometime next year. All IACCS nodes are expected to be in place by 2020. And there were plans to move to completely dynamic targeting by 2025. So why would XR-SAM not have netowork capabilities equal to S-400?
