BMEL unveiled the company's Mobile Bullet Proof Vehicle Mk-2, called the 'Gaur', at DefExpo . This 4x4 can seat 12, and has blast resistant seats, night vision, GPS nav, besides a radio & intercom system.

total modes: 18
all tracking modes by UTTAM completed on executive jet
now need to prove this on more unstable LCA

10 have been completed on LCA
8 more to go - planned to finish by end of year.

3 specific modes: A2A, A2G, A2S

A2A and A2S tested on AEWC - same has been migrated to LCA

algorithm modified to handle agility of LCA
dornier (Flying test bed) has been fitted with uttam A2G in a different band and tested necessary modes in that band as well.

This is what I meant when I said integrating Uttam on Su-30MKI requires significant Russian involvement, which includes us handing over significant amount of radar codes to the Russians in order to make it fully compatible with the MKI. This is why we have no choice but to use a Russian radar.

The only way we can avoid a Russian radar is if we gain full control over the Su-30MKI's FBW system, which the Russians are unlikely to part with at the current time.

In any case, the Russians will charge us an unrealistic amount just so we buy their own radar. They did the same with Brahmos integration, but that is so much more easier than replacing the radar itself.
Why 2 consecutive posts always merging together ?

Small posts are merged in order to prevent spamming.

Anyway, is there any information about new 125mm smoothbore shells for the T-72/T-90? Also any possibilities of bringing in a new gun for the T-90 that can fire longer shells?

The gun's stealth cupola is rather well done :

And Navy :

Interesting. they are going to pitch it to the navy too. A lot of our patrol boats use the OFB's Medak naval gun which is essentially a re-badged Shipunov 2A42 of the BMP. This could serve as a good replacement and a good upgrade from the 30mm to 40mm.

Same thing - For eg : the Phalanx System is used for CRAM

Didn't understand your point.
What I was trying to say is for CIWS Navies tend to go for multi barrel rotary cannons like AK630, Phalanx etc. The reason is simple, for a given value of rate of fire the wear and tear on an individual barrel will be far less in case of a multi barrel gun than a single barrel gun. Which is why I said that if this gun is used by the Navy, its primary job will not be air defence. However it can be used by smaller boats as the main gun with some secondary AD roles, those small boats usually don't have AD guns or have manually operated machine guns for that role.

Let me explain

Only with With post#21 - for Airbase protection

1) For Protection of Air Based against Enemy Aircrafts - The used of L70 is suitable

2) For CIWS - A System like the Phalanx for CRAM


Now the your Post #33 - Navy

Agree 40mm to 30mm is any day better !

We are developing so much avionics for Su 30 upgrade, radar itself getting ready..
Makes no sense if we don't integrate our own radar. Meteor missile and other western armaments can get integrated if it's our radar.

I believe it s going to be Russian radar only since they are the OEM, if we need their support then we have to follow their rule book.

However with extensive Indian involvement in upgrade, with radar being ready, more importantly Russian solution not being impressive..
I just hope we found a ground with Russian s to integrate our own radar.

The Sheyna torpedo is in the same class as this. I wonder why we need 2 torpedoes in the same class. Maybe this is to be air-launched or to be used on the SMART.
IN is interested in an advanced contemporary version of the lightweight torpedo which is currently in production. They only ordered a small batch of those.
