Indian Army's MRSAM
It is equipped with an advanced active radar RF seeker, advanced rotating phased array radar, and a bidirectional data link.
The phased array radar provides a high-quality air situation picture, while the bidirectional data link is used for relaying midcourse

guidance and target information to the missile.
The missile’s explosive warhead, featuring a self-destruct fuse, provides high-probability of kill against enemy targets with minimal collateral damage.

No. But work on bomber sector is on if what birdie says is true enough.
What's your opinion on this

The look (style not design) of the two CAD renders are eerily similar. Possible that source is the same... although in the latter one canards & cockpit indicate far larger aircraft.

Cargo Launched Explosive Air Vehicle for Extended Range.

Not basically developed for C-130, but could be launched by any cargo plane. But people here think that bomber for us is a waste. 😏
If corgo planes can be converted into bombers than argument for bombers is weaker ? No?

Also if that new missile weights under 2.5 ton which I guess it will then our su30 can carry it and launch from extended ranges.

MKU's network-centric integrated combat system for soldiers (NICS)
MKU many NICS proprietary products
i.e Jaguar 14 lightweight monocular night vision device is mounted via a bolt-free Multi-Accessory Connector System (MACS) on a Mukut advanced combat helmet.

🔸Quick-release Custom and Integrated Body Armour (CIBA) body armour is at the centre of the sys, as cables for various devices are embedded within the vest.
🔸Underneath it is an Equivital HMS that allows commanders to monitor the vital signs n even d motion of their soldiers.

Talking of first point, how do you suppose to launch a couple of BRAHMOS or Nirbhay from a Cargo Plane?
In 1971 we did used Dakota for bombing raids. But do think we could do the same for say a couple of Spice or SAAW now?

This particular weapon is big enough for a bomber to carry and so a C-130 has been modified to carry it. So talking about Su-30 to carry even one such missile is not at all logical.

10 of these networked wolves hunting and clobbering enemy bases. What a sight it would be. I think Brahmos has something similar.

Isn't that the point of corgo launched missiles that they can be added to corgo plane payload bay?

If this perticular weapon needs modifications in c130 than it will need modifications in corgo planes making the whole corgo launched plan mute!

If nirbhay max range was supposed to be 2000km . If it reached that we could launch it from our mainland and naval boats to Chinese industrial areas directly.

Much like how Russian launched kalbir into Syria not through a bomber but missile boats.

And su30 carrying a 2.5 ton missile wasn't logical either untill we did it. Anyway bramhos ng will weight 1500kg and could be launched by all indian jets as well as p8i !!

I'm not against bombers. But I enjoy looking at alternative scenario too.

Yup USA is going all out to develop new weaponry against china. Lot of it will benefit us too.
Our p8i and c130 could very well use all of these weapon or their export varients.
I don't think they will sell such kind of a weapons, it's a notch lower than strategic weapons but is almost is. It's Moab with intelligence. But we can develop this easily, I mean if we are planning to develop wing man's this should be easier.

Cargo launched missiles means you can't accommodate it in the bomb bay of a bomber nor carry it on the external hard point. So you modify a normal cargo plane to carry the same. Its just like modifying a C-130 to carry a 105mm cannon and make is AC-130.

Even in Vietnam war US used C-130 to drop Daisy cutters. But it doesn't mean that it could replace a conventional bomber in launching AGM series CMs. US used C-5 to launch BM. But role of a dedicated Bomber is always unique. Even with normal cargos, the cargo hold has to be modified from time to time. These wind of weapons could be considered as a special cargo.

Now in case of a Bomber its not just about launch of weapon. It's about the payload it could carry. In a hypothetical scenario, if we want to engage a fleet with Brahmos, a conventional destroyer launched version would give us a range of 300 km at present, but along with it it would have a constant danger of scanning for subs. But with a bomber, the same Brahmos could be launched from a distance of 400+ km at present. Even the best SAM right now would not be able to cover the distance.
Now one could argue in case of a CAP by enemy's fleet, it would make a bomber vulnerable. Whereas Su-30 could carry out the same activity. But we have to keep it in mind that a Su-30 carrying a BRAHMOS would be equally vulnerable to enemy CAP. Same is the case on a land attack scenario.

A bomber brings versatility o your arsenal and acts as a force multiplier. So even at a cost it surpasses the role of an attack aircraft. There could be debate whether India needs one or not. But saying that Su-30 or M2k could do the job of a bomber is a joke IMO.

But lets discuss it in relevant thread.
