Ok, I will explain in details what I am talking about is not about the Standard's PL 15's missiles but an experiential PL 15's version's with dual intake ram jet's under testing's. Dont knew about it's status or is it will succeed the current's Pl 15's or not's.Doesn't ramjet require air vents?
I am not talking about dual ram jet, but about the dual intake and dual mode ramjet that the new variant's of PL 15's posses, but take it with a pinch of salt's for any Chinese missile's.But what is a Dual Ramjet? Make me understand that first.
You might be either talking of Dual Intake RAMJET or Dual Pulse Motor or Dual Mode RAMJET.
It is having dual pulse solid rocket motor.Even the standard PL 15's has a dual mode to increase it's range according to the chinese's. But take it's with a pinch of salt for any chinese Missile's. I have explained in details in the Rafale Verses J 20's BVRAAM's Engagment's on the sino border conflict's.
Yeah, DMR. Chinese are good at playing with words. DMR doesn't increase range per se. It only enables a RAMJET engine to perform at subsonic speed along with supersonic speed. So technically you don't require a rocket motor to boost the missile.Even the standard PL 15's has a dual mode to increase it's range according to the chinese's. But take ir with a salt of pich for any chinese Missile's. I have explained in details in the Rafale Verses J 20's BVRAAM's Engagment's on the sino border conflict's.
Yes like that they get their so called unbeatable range, but always take the Chinese weapons at 30 percentage exgrationes, they claim a range of 300 Km, but in in reality it's less than meteors more similar to the 200 km less range's.Yeah, DMR.

But Chinese sure would increase the range by transgressing in the distance territory.
It is an asset of the MICA missiles : the opponent don't know what kind of counter measures to use and what manoeuvers to realize !Astra IR could bring a new dimension in IAF Aerial Firepower
Astra Mk1 with Active RF seeker has moved from the developmental stage to the production stage after both IAF and Navy agreed to procure 248 missiles along with 50 which were ordered first a new milestone for the homegrown Beyond Visual range air to air missile technology in the country. While the country waits for DRDO to hold on to its promise and deliver even a longer range Astra Mk2, it has now come in a foray that the DRDO is also working on Astra Passive imaging IR seeker variant which might be ready much before Astra Mk2. IR guidance has long been the predominant mode for the short-range AAMs, with radar guidance preferred for longer-range weapons. Astra IR along with Astra RF this means that fighter jets will be able the option of ripple-firing two missiles one radar-guided and the other IR at the same target to sharpen the defensive challenge for the target aircraft. Since IR seekers are passive and do not emit signals, like active radar seekers there is a reduced chance of detection by the target aircraft’s defensive aid suite. Astra IR will complement Astra RF for medium and extended-range air-to-air engagement and a combination of both active radar and IR is more difficult to defeat through countermeasures since Pilot will be overwhelmed trying to deploy two levels of countermeasures to defeat Astra IR and Astra RF which were fired together.
