Therefore I have always said that a missile like Akash Mk2 can deliver maximum punch per Rupee. An Akash mk2 like missile with between 1to 2 crore and 40 km + range can be ideal to bring down low cost missile like Mirage V or JF 17 or Chinese J series. MR SAM will be too costly.I believe LG Ammo is easier to develop and cheaper than exorbitantly costly M982. It’s jusy another fancy item like rafale and F35.
LG ammo is used by Pakistanis quite frequently at LOC
I’m not even sure if planes like JF17 and Mirage V etc are worth shooting with such costly AAMs .
Had we had baba kalyani light gun in place, balance would have further tilted in our favor.We have also done mirror deployment.
