Not saying it isn't possible but has it even been cleared for exports?
Would need to see more sources confirming this news before believing it.

It would be a cherry on top of 2023 if true tough.:cool1:

Whom to believe?

This would probably be the real high tech weapon we would be exporting. No matter how hard Azerbaijan try, they can not buy anything like this state of art system. If Armenia buys Guided Pinaka and gets their Su 30 updated with India, balance of power shall significantly shift towards Armenia.

Bringing Accuracy bellow 10 meter is a great development. It will be like firing a shot from a sniper Rifle that doing firing with Machine gun. We can have our own excalibur round. We have bought these costly rounds from US to meet our need. If we can do this on our own, it will a very good thing which has happened to Indian defense sector.

Defence Production To Touch Rs 3 Lakh Crore By 2028-29: Rajnath Singh
Defence production to touch Rs 3 lakh crore by 2028-29: Rajnath Singh

India's defence production expected to reach Rs 3 lakh crore by 2028-29, with arms exports of Rs 50,000 crore. Prime Minister Modi government focuses on 'long-term gains' for 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat'. India emerged as a top-25 weapons exporter, strengthening domestic defence-industrial base. Defence ministry allocated highest budget.
NEW DELHI: India's annual defence production is expected to touch Rs 3 lakh crore by 2028-29, along with arms exports of Rs 50,000 crore, defence minister Rajnath Singh said on Saturday, stressing that Modi govt is focusing on "long-term gains" and "not short-term outcomes" in all sectors to make the country a developed one by 2047.
Singh said the country had emerged as a weapons exporter and found a place in top-25 such countries. "Seven-eight years ago, defence exports did not even touch Rs 1,000 crore. Today, it has touched Rs 16,000 crore," he said, at a defence conclave.
"Radical changes" have been made in defence production sector for long-term gains to ensure India achieves PM's goal of 'Aatmanirbhar Bharat', Singh said, adding that annual domestic defence production has now crossed Rs 1 lakh crore.
Progressive bans on imports of different weapon systems, platforms and munitions have posed "short-term difficulties", but also helped strengthen domestic defence-industrial base. "Today, our military is increasingly using weapons and platforms manufactured on our own soil," he said.
There were apprehensions that weapons developed indigenously will not be "world-class" but govt believes in capabilities of domestic industry, which can consistently improve and deliver state-of-the-art products. The aim is to manufacture high-end systems like aero-engines and gas turbines in India in coming five years, he said.
The defence ministry has been allocated Rs 6.2 lakh crore in the 2024-25 budget, highest among all ministries, while capital acquisitions over Rs 4.3 lakh crore have been given in-principal approval in the ongoing fiscal. The defense budget was increased in view of current changing circumstances in geopolitical scenario along with deepening challenges on the borders. "These decisions reflect govt's long-term approach towards national security," he said.

Germany is conducting "discreet negotiations" to procure artillery ammunition from India, which is estimated to have "several hundred thousand rounds" stored in stockpiles, Der Spiegel reported on Feb. 25.
The European Union's top diplomat, Josep Borrell, said on Feb. 19 that he has urged member states to procure ammunition for Ukraine outside the bloc if this source of supply is "better, cheaper, and quicker."
Kyiv is facing critical ammunition shortages, as $61 billion in funding from the U.S. remains stuck in Congress, causing defense aid deliveries to run dry. Reports suggest Ukraine could face a catastrophic shortage of supplies like shells and air defenses within weeks.

Der Spiegel reported that Berlin is looking to Arab states, as well as countries in the Balkans and Africa, for new supplies of ammunition for Ukraine.
The German military is currently looking to stockpiles in countries outside the EU, with a group of military officers, diplomats, and civil servants meeting in Berlin every two weeks to assess which "which countries can be approached that may still have ammunition stocks."
Negotiations are being conducted with New Delhi in a "discreet" way given its "friendly relations with Moscow," Der Spiegel said.
Kuleba calls for Europe to suspend ammunition sales to third countries



One diplomatic solution is that Berlin could obtain the ammunition "through intermediaries," according to Der Spiegel.
India's Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar visited Moscow in December and said that Indo-Russia ties are "very strong."

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Russia and India had made progress in talks on the joint production of military equipment.
A Pew poll conducted in August 2023 found that 57% of Indians had a positive view of Russia, and another 59% had "confidence in Russian (dictator) Vladimir Putin."

When asked about economic ties, 71% of Indians said that "maintaining access to Russia's oil and gas reserves is more important than being tough with Russia on Ukraine."
Trade between Russia and India has grown to record levels, RIA Novosti claimed in October 2023.
