People are saying it is RudraM-III
If one looks carefully
One will infer that the missile doesn't have a radome , the nose tip section is small and radomes are always a single piece ( there cannot be joints or rivetting ahead of the seeker ) , and given the size of the missile , the nose tip section is kind of small ( any seeker antenna there will be really tiny ).
So the said missile IMO is INS-GPS guided ( hit fixed targets )
And I cannot say if it RudraM-III. There are just too many control surfaces in the rear . Both RudraM-II / RudraM-III schematics showed 8 control surfaces each , now the yellow coloured missile has 16 rear control surfaces alone.
My suspicion is it is a variant of RudraM-II , the additional 2 sets of new fins are positioned alternatively ahead of the original 2 set of fins in RudraM-II.
