Not a single structure but four support legs , two in front , two at back , weight is quite well segregated compared to awacs , some structural reinforcement and it's good to goSo the carrying structure has to support 3 3.5 tons ? Wow I didn't know they can support that much weight.
Yes off course, I didn't mean that all weight will be made to bear on couple of structures. I was awed about the structural strength of body of the aeroplane. Come to think of it Ruskies made those An-225's to carry Buran. Yup they are strong.Not a single structure but four support legs , two in front , two at back , weight is quite well segregated compared to awacs , some structural reinforcement and it's good to go
I really hope we create a SPAAG (gun+missile) turret that can be fitted to different chassis rather than importing the BIHO or any other platform. We already have everything developed apart from the MANPAD and the rest just needs to be packaged properly.Mpdms will be produced by a Pvt company
The project completion date is 24 months
It will have both single Luncher and multi luncher variants

How many programs though from DRDO alone, mind-boggling.
- Akash, Akash Mk1S
- Akash NG
- SRSAM (same as VL-Astra?)
- MRSAM (IAF), LRSAM (Navy), MRSAM (IA)
- XRSAM (same as PDV/AAD?)
- Program AD (PDV/AAD, now Phase 2 in devpt)
- Astra, Astra Mk2
- CLGM (Arjun missile)
- NGARM (Rudra M1), Rudra M2/M3 (NGARM body with different seeker types)
- PGHSLD (different bomb types, laser seeker + satnav)
- Garuda/Garuthma glide bombs (wing kits + satnav)
- MPGMs (PGM warheads)/UAV launched missiles
- Pinaka 1, 2 guided
- Pralay (Shourya variant)
- Prahar (AAD redesigned)
- Naval anti-ship missile (desi Penguin/Sea Skua?)
- Nirbhay (Sea/Air/Land)
- Brahmos ER (800km beyond current 450km?)
- Brahmos NG (lightweight, multi-purpose)
This is apart from the strategic programs
May be for detecting small boats , armed speed boats and fishing vessels in close / Lower ranges , maybe as you said to detect Low flying objects.
