It's ok. They are on the learning curve. Sooner or later they will master the craft of drone operation. You have to accept we are nowhere near forget UCAV even our rustom UAV is nowhere to be seen.
By this logic, I must say that we are on a better learning curve then Turkey in drone designing.

👍

2nd & 3rd - same platform but 2 different purposes for simplicity

There is the divert control system which i am sure is being used in one of the configuration

To tell the truth i was spooked , tried to include minimal information , some i will discuss later because system is yet to be revealed publically / tested
Yeah, 3rd Pic was not loading up. So missed it out.

So, this Drone PLI scheme can be used by defence manufacturers to manufacture UAVs in India and is not limited to the drones we fly as “toys” or other civilian applications.

Unless mera KLPD ho and GA makes commercial drones as well which I’m unaware of.
India is bringing in a drone law as per which neither you can sell or purchase drones online or offline without prior permission from concerned people. So this PLI scheme is going to help only in strategic field rather then commercial ones.

explanation plz!
Byraktar is comparable to Rustom-1. Now please compare the crash rate of Byraktar with that of R-1.

Now if you compare the service record, please note that IA don't want R-1/ Byraktar capability. IA is more interested in capability equal to Heron or something to exceed it. So R-1 is not going to suffice that and capability wise R-2 is on another level then Byraktar.

To test a drone, subsonic is good enough.

More then that, Turkey has the backing of companies working or worked in past with NATO.
But, Turkey has their own drones flying with cruise missiles.

So more Phoren Maal.

Lt. Gen. Chawla, Director General Artillery said the summer fire trial this year of the ATAGS had failed to achieve certain parameters and would undergo further modifications.

Need a robust and reliable gun, says Army as artillery modernisation plan faces hiccups

What is the issue with ATAGS? Is the weight more than what the Army mentioned in its requirements?

And why don't they simply sell the technology of Dhanush to a private manufacturer who can stick to timelines and quality? OFB needs to be sold off anyway(at least a lot of factories in the cluster), this might as well expedite the process.
