HSTDV TEL is interesting , new boxy type enclosures at the sides compared to usual Indian TELs

One can argue for the sake of argument , that having a dedicated TEL designed specifically for HSTDV points towards the intent to operationalise HSTDV as a weapon system ( contrary to the publically published intent of its use as a technology demonstrator ).

That is probably the electronics bay for the seeker and the GNC system. The 1st flight prototype didn't have that.

We don't know if the photo above is of the HSTDV model that was recently tested or a new one. Either way the HSTDV tech is headed for weaponisation.
