Nothing.

But you would be pleased to know that we might not even need to fire a EMP device to begin with. We have another device much more conventional and cheaper then it.
I am not sure but I think you are talking about graphite bomb and if that's the case than graphite bomb cannot be compared with EMP bomb. IMO there is no equivalence whatsoever.

Graphite bomb is very limited in scope as it can only be used to short circuit " exposed " electrical distribution systems like high voltage transmission lines , sub stations , electrical grids etc by releasing long strands/fibres of graphite.

EMP bomb functionality is totally different and far more effective in terms of capabilities and damage done to both " exposed " and " protected " electrical and electronic systems both directly and indirectly and at a large scale.

What missile is being fired here? Is it Helina or Sant?

According to a recent article by Rahul Singh, SANT will be fired from a Mi-35 in December. IAF is planning to integrate Sant with Mi-35. He was mum about the integration with LCH.
What about the Strum Ataka missiles we bought from Russia for ₹200 crores for MI-35? I guess MI-35 won’t require additional ATGMS, HELINA and SANT are for Rudra and LCH imo.

Yes. EMP device is more of a surgeon apparatus then C-Bomb, which is more of a butcher cleaver.

That is pathetic, especially considering Rudra is a helo.
Do you know hal supplied the Rudras ahead of schedule and the helis were in storage for months yet army did not take delivery of the same for reasons best known to them ( I guess lack of type qualified pilots or delay in raising unit for the same etc )

Oh... Isn't army supposed to store them after they are ordered? And even so, why is the production rate so low?

Store them where , if they don't have the facilities created for the new helis at the unit base in the first place etc

Generally
Production rate is directly proportional to production orders.
Low production orders will result in low production rate

How about LCA, then? Can they produce it faster s if contingency arises?
