Britian offers India a joint venture for developing Meteor MK-2 AAM. MBDA -UK already in a JV with Japan for developing Meteor variant for Japanese F-35.
They want us to pay for the development of the next iteration of a missile which they don't have ip for half of its components!?
As the centre of gravity shifts east, brits are becoming less and less relevant.

That's for terminal phase not mid phase , show me some early stage manuver , any text that claim so
No, the maneuver in the terminal phase is performed by RV generally through aerodynamic design.

The midcourse maneuver is done by the PBV through the liquid engine thrust. The procedure of PBV of the MIRVs releasing multi RVs is already a kind of maneuver. Generally the rocket engine on PBV can provide around 200s time for maneuvering. If you want a much larger extent maneuver, reduce the number of RV, leave more fuel to maneuvering.

This ABM would still knock-off chinese junk and would mostly end the boasting of HGV done by China

On the issue of corona virus which is alleged to be bio-engineered for offensive use, its ramifications should be taken very seriously I believe its high time to rethink on offensive biological warfare program as a deterrence or as analogue to Russian 'dead hand' fail-deadly & mutual assured destruction deterrence.

IMO nuclear weapons cannot guarantee protection against biological weapons because there will be literally no survivors if a country comes under biological attack.

Even if India is hit with 200 nukes there will be many survivors, with biological weapons literally no survivors over a period of time.

Eg if 1 kg of highly refined botulinum toxin is released & dispersed evenly by wind in all directions it is more than enough to kill 1 billion people if breathed in by them.

AFAIK bio-warfare agents have a pre-engineered oxidation life. Eg say botulinum toxin has been engineered to have a oxidation life of 72 hours

It means it will stay virulent for 72 hours & will kill everything within that time period after which it will lose virulence High possibility local mutations might occur leading to continued virulence in few effected areas, but a sensible country will never develop a deadly biological agent without simultaneously developing an antidote for the same to cater for own safety & unforseen complications during possible use, unless they are as dumbfucks as who you know

I have a suspicion that after what happened last year many countries have resumed their dormant programs relating to the same

To my point earlier, it requires offence, defence and very important intelligence and since this is very specialized field it requires a complete new set up and directly report to PM, DM and COAS.
