This is huge news, $270M is around 1/3 of their entire defence budget - would probably make us their largest arms supplier. Hope we have something to negate byraktar and Israeli loitering munitions too.
We have those TATA SED/L&T modified L70 Bofors with FCR and smart fusing rounds. Wonder if Armenia took them or no. Not to mention the many variants of SAMs

I was thinking more on the lines of electronic warfare or something that would target the drone control nodes. Legacy SAM systems (which are still otherwise quite effective) haven't worked that well in the conflict, AAA is ok for last line of defence but can't really be you plan A to counter drones IMO.

Another idea could be marketing the loitering munitions and drone swarms our startups have come up with. Helps the startups with more funding that they need and helps us validate our drone swarms in a real battlefield. Indian Army has already ordered them from multiple startups, so its not as if they don't have the vote of confidence of our Armed Forces. They do. Which means they can be aggressively marketed.

Likely will be MPATGM.
Makes no sense to export 2nd gen SALCOS wired guided ATGM we license produce
MPATGM is still not past the testing phase is it? I bet its Nag. That thing has production clearance and already cleared Army trials.

EDIT: OK, this page of BDL lists what they offer for export. Only one indigenous ATGM is on it: Nag.
