It is inducted? We don't need American bombs anymore??
These are dumb cluster bombs

The CBU 105 is a smart sensor fuzed cluster bomb

DRDO has already demonstrated MMW sensor based bomblets

So common sense dictates that most probably they are working to miniaturise and improve it further inorder to package them into a cluster bomb

As part of a TD project smart munitions to defeat enemy armour from its vulnerable top was initiated long time back

These technologies developed for the same included

1.Explosively Formed Projectile (EFP)—A copper liner serving as antenna for the sensor in the search mode and forming a single projectile in the attack mode.

2.Detonator Arming Safety Device for activating EFP warhead

3.Efficient capsule ejection system

4.Highly compact MMW sensor

5.Rotatoil parachute for stabilising the sub-munition and scanning the ground target

The technology was validated for 120 mm mortar rounds.

No idea on current status

That's heartening to learn our progress in missiles and ammunitions including smart weaponry is quite extensive .

We are in catch up mode. My comment was in that regard. It's good that we are catching up fast and in all domains of weaponry.

In a decade or two we shall have new innovation coming out of this vast extensive base which we have build.

I am assuming land based K15 , but I could be wrong
No, it should be it only.
Everything fit perfectly for it to be the Missile.
It can be launched from sub.
It speed is Mach seven.
It is quasi ballistic.
It can carry one ton warhead too.
It has long range.
And it can maneuver.
Also the big thing is long way back I read it to be imagined as a killer of Chinese aircraft carriers in a article during that pesky congress maino era.
So, predictions do go there.
Also, mysteriously very few articles of shaurya is available on public domain. :lawl:

Avinash Chander used to mention 3 main important projects

300km BVR AAM which is now assumed to be Astra SFDR

300km SAM which we think is XRSAM

& 2000KM Ballistic AShM which I think is Variant of K4 (like ASAT missile)
