Given the service involved is the Army there is a probability of that happening. But the Army did do trails on the Mistral & the RBS 70 as a part of the VSHORAD deal. So I guess they wont be completely out of touch with the global standards on these missiles.What are the chances that it will be called overweight ?!
One can always hope.
This is a private/limited tender but the VL-SRSAM wasn't. The design for the VL-SRSAM's VLS was available in exquisite details. LOLThe drawings are not included on the public section of the website for some Limited tenders. The potential bidders are expected to email RCI to get them under NDA.
This is all a formality anyway. They probably already know which vendors will respond since it is a "Limited Tender" and shared all tender documents privately in advance. Limited tenders will only be issued to pre qualified vendors and are not available for open bidding. Likely that BEL, VEM, Astra Microwave and TASL got the Tender invitation. The vendors are probably already involved since many months in the design process and have their estimates ready.
The vagaries of Indian defence procurement continues to amaze me.
