you mean beyond the 40 something that already exist ?
Yes, they're based out of TN I guess- so I am assuming their primary focus will be Bay of Bengal and Indian Ocean. Plus taking into account the Ruski aircraft availability. Pakis get a relatively free hand in the Arabian sea(although Navy is there) but AF sorties will keep the positive pressure alive

Still single packed,waste a ton of space for a short range air defense.... I guess we would have quad pack version in the vls being developed to launch all indian naval missiles. Any idea how many missiles to be fitted onboard ships... 16 or 32?
For a 7 inch hot launch missile, this cannister size is OK.

For existing AC & DDG, it would be in 64 and 32 cell configuartion.

Soon we might need Brahmos worthy Flankers for our western seaboard too given the rate Pak Navy is growing
Jaguar with harpoons are already there to take care of few capital ships porky navy has. Also even a coastal battery of bramhos can anywhere in porkystani waters not much need for su30mki launched bramhos.

Not to mention TN based su30mki can still fly till pakistan without even refueling . Lol
That's the point of having big birds.

perhaps 15% of inventory is good enough, rest is upto IAF to manage logistics. This is why IAF conducted Gagan Shakti to validate these things.

Let's hope for the best or vlsrsam might just be defensive Sam system for smaller corvette ships. I am particularly excited about our own mk41 vls or sylver vls kinda system. Won't vlsrsam have problem integrating with Israeli Mf-star radar. What will be the radar for its ground variant? Range of 15 km seems to be misreported I guess coz range similiar derived missile of vl mica ng has 40km range, surely Astra derived vlsrsam should be able to achieve atleast that much otherwise range is seriously underwhelming.

India develops AESA radar to make IAF fighters more lethal


Project director D Seshagiri of Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE) confirmed this and said that the developed AESA radar is 95% indigenous, with only one imported subsystem.

VL-SRSAM being an indigenous product with all source code developed inhouse would not have any problem with integration with MF-STAR.

No one is going to divulge the exact range of missile in public for sure.
