The control surfaces are optimized for better agility , in the video published you can see it intercepts the target after climb and sharp decent indicates how it bypass Mountains and ability to hit the hiding target's behind the mountain.


Akash - base variant.
Akash 1S- upgraded with seeker.
Akash Prime/1P - upgraded for Mountains.

Akash MK2/NG - Upgraded version with different missile and systems with better range and accuracy

Just see Well spend R&D money
Which developed Russian 2K12 Kub

Into a great new gen AD platform
IMO Akash is a great success story of how you learn from reverse-engineering but make something of your own instead of blindly copying the system like Chinese.

Akash’s base missiles aerodynamic model is practically same as that of 2K12, but every other thing like datalink, radar, range, warhead, seeker and TEL has been improved multifold & indigenised.

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.
The crash rate of Byraktar was the result achieved in the battlefield with various threats against the plane, the communication channel and even the people controlling it.

What is the background of R-1's crash rate?

Govt dissolves OFB, transfers employees and assets to 7 PSUs

The defence ministry has dissolved the Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) with effect from October 1 and transferred its assets, employees and management to seven public sector units (PSUs), according to an official order.

As part of the "Atmanirbhar Bharat" (self-reliant India) package, the central government had announced on May 16 last year that it would improve autonomy, accountability and efficiency in ordnance supplies by corporatisation of the OFB.

In an order dated September 28, the defence ministry said: Government of India has decided to transfer, with effect from October 1, 2021, the management, control, operations and maintenance of these 41 production units and identified non-production units to seven government companies (wholly owned by the government of India).

According to the order, the name of the seven defence PSUs (also called DPSUs) are Munition India Limited, Armoured Vehicles Nigam Limited, Advanced Weapons and Equipment India Limited, Troop Comforts Limited, Yantra India Limited, India Optel Limited and Gliders India Limited.
OFB is currently a defence ministry entity and supplies critical arms and ammunition to the three armed forces and the paramilitary.

The order said: The government has decided that all the employees of OFB (Group A, B & C) belonging to the production units and also the identified non-production units shall be transferred en masse to the new DPSUs on terms of foreign service without any deputation allowance (deemed deputation) initially for a period of two years from the appointed date (October 1).

Each of the new DPSUs is required to frame rules and regulations related to service conditions of the absorbed employees, the order noted.

Each of the DPSUs should also seek an option for permanent absorption from the employees on deemed deputation to that respective DPSU, within a period of two years, it stated.

The service conditions of the absorbed employees would not be inferior to the existing ones. A committee would be constituted by DDP (Department of Defence Production) for guiding the new DPSUs in this regard so that the absorption package given is attractive, the order mentioned
