Astra Mk1 can be fitted with an AESA seeker and rebadged as Astra Mk1A. Countries which can't afford the Mk1A can get the Mk1.
For a sales package of the MWF we can include the Astra Mk1A and Mk2 as standard A2A BVRs, along with optional Mk3s as expensive silver bullets.

oh really, you smoke lot of stuff i guess, any idea if why we importing russian stuff and isreali stuff when we have AMRAAM equivalent missile in home
1. Astra Mk. 2 is still in development.
2. That is because we don't won the IP and source code of most mission computers for our aircraft. It will be meaningless to pay Russians to integrate Atra in Mig-29 when then shall shall start retiring by end of this decade. Same goes for Mirage. As for Rafale Meteor is more advanced than Astra Mk. 2hence we are not trying to integrate it. Lets see how things pan out for Astra Mk. 3

1. It will be in development and blah blah stages till 2040, and first lot of Astra MK2 will be delivered by 2045, yet it won't beat 1990's AIM 120

2. We pay shit load of money to Russians in every fighter jet procurement, yet Russians shove a big nail in our asses when we ask about IP rights, but it's not the same for other countries, we see Mirage with R73 and so on, It's better we don't waste money on shit things like developing BVR and things, instead of use the money and resource in somewhere else
