Is there any weapon Russia has that we can do JV like bhramos? @

A next generation CCM, possibly based on the I-300.

A scramjet based AAM with very long range to deal with HVAs.

We already have a JV for the Desi-Meteor. Russia is supplying the ramjet engine.

Narturally, we won't put all our eggs in one basket. So one among the first two are possible, although we can get a JV done with the British for the CCM, leaving the scramjet as a possible JV potential, perhaps as an extension to the Brahmos-2 program. We are already planning an AAM version for the Brahmos-1/M.

Besides, while Wiki may not be the most accurate source of information, do you think they'd get it so wrong as to be a completely unreliable source of information. Let's give credit where it is due.
Are you aware the entire Scots section of Wikipedia comprising 57,000 articles was written by an American teen furry who just wrote down English with an"accent" for almost 10 years?

No & what's the context in the discussion we're having here?
The context is quoted right there.

If they couldn't figure out they were being conned about a language spoken by many people for a decade, you think they have accurate figures for secretive missile programmes?

First of all these are 2 different scenarios written by 2 different people. Or are you suggesting the same teen who wrote those articles also wrote about the missiles.

Secondly just to contextualize, the Prithvi is a short range SSM with a range between 150-300 kms. That much is admitted by the government. People may speculate it can go upto 500 kms. Nobody suggests it's capable of 1000 kms. Nor does Wikipedia.

Coming to the Agni V, official sources put the range at 5000 kms. The Chinese have openly questioned this & have claimed it to have a range of 8000-8500 kms. We have neither confirmed nor denied this. Informed commentators from India have also affirmed this by stating that the DRDO often tests our Agni series particularly Agni V in depressed trajectories.Wikipedia too reports it as between 5000-8500 kms Has anybody claimed it does 10-12000 kms?

SFDR is developed by drdo with little Russian assistance.
