Whoa there! Let's not get completely bonkers here. It won't be fired on move.

Nonetheless if you actually see its latest version then both the CIWS have the auto-cannons same height... And if CG is too high (unlikely by the render) , then the midsection of the truck's chasis could be brought down.

Nonetheless what I meant was it will have to clear nightmarish trials before getting inducted, any real or imaginary platform shortcomings will be sorted out.

Here it is in person. Look at it and do the calculation on how to move it. Even on a straight road in high speed, there is huge change of it getting toppled over.

I dont knew that much about this weapons but we will likely procure the Pantasir SA 2 system under a ToT.
May be, but latest news is that we would make it inhouse. Don't know how much time would it take.

Oh yeah. That one won't be clearing any trials 😅, but not the same thing as the one in 3D render. Most likely was just a tech demo.

Nonetheless I remain an advocate of using tracked trucks to mount military equipment like arty or MLRS.

L & T is the only firm that could accomplish this task in time and budget the sudarshan could be modified from a Area Defence to Mobile Air Defence.
Along with the gun, you need SAM to counter the threats. For that you need a mounted target acquisition RADAR.
Its a complex system.

This a cut out diagram of what has been mounted on the truck.

They have just changed the dimension in the 3D render to look appeasing. Otherwise they have not replaced any subsystem from the mount. So it was just an effort to make it visually pleasing in picture then the real thing instead of any practical design change.

There's empty space on both sides though... The ammo could definitely be repositioned. Let's see how the final prototype looks like.

Yeah. It means there is no difference in between the 3D model and the original product apart from view asof now.

That's an assumption, although a possibility... we don't know the internal mechanism maybe they have found a way for more compact internal arrangement.
The ship one is pretty spread out & definitely not as tall as the truck prototype.

Something like this instead of Biho?

View attachment 59541

Absolute NO.

Biho is a combination of rotary canon and SAM. So we do need a absolutely new system to compensate it.
What u r referring to is a CIWS for point defence. Biho was selected under a tender for 'selfpropelled air defence gun missile system'. The system you are discussing about, does not fulfill the requirements of the tender. Only Biho/Biho like systems can provide the mobility and support to the armoured columns as envisaged by IA.

It could work just fine if the feed system can be laid horizontally.

DRDO has over the years developed various naval sub-systems meant for signature reduction by using a combination of specialised design & advanced materials employed. All kinds of signature: IR, acoustic, vibrations, RCS etc. These systems are present in most of IN's ships today.

DRDO developed a Radar Absorbent Paint(RAP) formula for naval usage long ago. So far the only Indian Navy ship with a black superstructure is the Kamorta class with the black exhaust stack. It is not known if the RAP has been used here or if it has any IR suppressive properties.

Talk by Dr. Amit Kumar, Advanced System lab, DRDO from 19:30 onwards.

Some points :

1) PDV, AD-2, Shakti to intercept missiles in their trajectory's mid course phase. AD-1 and AD-2 to intercept missiles in their trajectory's terminal phase.
2) Process of engaging incoming ballistic missiles.
3) Indian BMD elements.
4) Indian Interceptor missiles (PDV, AAD) and their comparision with other systems.
5) AD-1, AD-2
6) Talks in somewhat detail about Mission Shakti.
7) Talks about Hypersonic glide vehicles.
