    Hahaahhaaha... that is a really sad attempt at a spec chart... climb rate 9 gs... Jesus... that is amazing... I mean a 9 g turn rate is impressive enough but a 9g acceleration rate would render you unconscious...

    Also 6 AAMs? Really?

    IAF lines up series of sleek ‘Astra’ trials from Monday

    IAF SU-35MKI with Astra Missile


    BHUBANESWAR: Indian Air Force (IAF) is slated to carry out a series of captive trials of indigenously developed beyond visual range (BVR) air-to-air missile ‘Astra’ from a fighter aircraft from Monday.
    Defence sources said the missile will be fired from Sukhoi-30 MKI aircraft targeting a Pilotless Target Aircraft (PTA) at different altitudes from different angles over the Bay of Bengal to reconfirm the killing efficiency of the all-terrain and all-weather weapon system.

    The anti-aircraft missile, considered one of the best of its kind in the world, will be tested for three days. Altogether, three rounds of the missile have reportedly been planned to be test-fired.

    The focus is on to achieve success during all the three trials this time as a coordinated air exercise on Wednesday reportedly ended in failure as the missile nose-dived after it was fired from the aircraft and exploded on the sea beach causing enormous noise.

    The missile was first tested from the aircraft at a naval range in the western sector on May 4, 2014. ‘Astra,’ which possesses high single shot kill probability making it highly reliable, is the first homegrown missile to be fired from Sukhoi-30 MKI.

    “The captive trials are aimed at establishing the compatibility of the missile’s electronics with the Su-30MKI avionics. Apart from Sukhoi, the missile can be integrated with Mirage-2000, MiG-29, Jaguar and Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA),” a defence official said.

    The single stage, solid fuelled ‘Astra’ missile is more advanced in its category than the contemporary BVR missiles and is capable of engaging and destroying highly manoeuvrable supersonic aerial targets.

    The 3.8-metre long missile, which has a diameter of 178 mm, can carry about 15 kg of high-explosive warhead, activated by a proximity fuse and be fitted to any fighter aircraft. ‘Astra’ is a futuristic missile and can intercept the target at super-sonic speed of Mach 1.2 to 1.4. The sleek missile, capable of ducking radar eyes, is the smallest of the missiles developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). After its induction, the missile will be one of the best of its kind in the world in 100 km range.

    ‘Near-hit’ Astra test successful

    Post  Pinto on Tue Dec 13, 2016 7:21 am

    BHUBANESWAR: Indian Air Force (IAF) on Monday test fired beyond visual range (BVR) air-to-air missile Astra against an actual target in full operational configuration for the first time over Bay of Bengal paving way for its early induction in the armed forces.
    Defence sources said two rounds of the missile from Sukhoi-30 MKI aircraft were targeting pilot-less target aircraft (PTA) Banshee. The mission was termed ‘successful’ considering the missed-distance calculation, though the missile failed to achieve a direct hit.

    ‘’The missiles were fired both at high and medium altitude. They passed very close to the target and it can be termed near-hit. The mission was conducted in a war-like scenario and the missile was fired on actual targets. Data collected during the tests are being examined,’’ the sources said.

    DRDO officials, however, claimed that the mission was excellent. The tests were conducted to demonstrate the aerodynamic characteristics of the missile. It has demonstrated the repeatability, robustness and endurance capability of Astra weapon system, said a senior official.

    Indigenously designed and developed by DRDO, Astra possesses high Single Shot Kill Probability (SSKP), making it highly reliable. It is an all-aspect, all-weather missile with active radar terminal guidance, excellent electronic counter-counter measure (ECCM) features, smokeless propulsion and process improved effectiveness in multi-target scenario.
    Sources informed that this trial will be followed by two more tests in coming days. Apart from Sukhoi-30 MKI, scientists have started integrating the weapon with homegrown ‘Tejas’ Light Combat Aircraft (LCA).

    Astra is designed for an 80-km range in head-on mode and 20 km-range in tail-chase mode. The 3.8 metre long missile, which has launch weight of about 154 kg, uses solid-fuel propellant and a 15 kg high-explosive warhead activated by a proximity fuse.

    Fitted with a terminal active radar-seeker and an updated mid-course internal guidance system, the missile can locate and track targets. It is difficult to track this missile as its on-board electronic counter-measures jam signals from the enemy radars.

    As an anti-aircraft missile, it can be fired after receiving a signal from the far away target through its on-board manoeuvres based on radio frequency.

    Moscow. The 14th of February. Interfax-AVN - An important advantage of fighter Su-30MKI combat aircraft over the other is maneuverability, "Interfax-AVN" on Tuesday, leading Test Pilot Corporation "Irkut", honored test pilot, Hero of Russia Vyacheslav Averyanov.

    "Provides superior maneuverability in close combat it allows the use of weapons faster, improves safety." - V.Averyanov said.


    He called untenable assertion that melee thing of the past. "From a fighter requires the ability to lead and the distal and proximal dogfight If you are weak in some kind of battle, it is his enemy and you will be imposed." - V.Averyanov said.

    According to him, the scenario specific combat situation depends on many factors. For example, electronic warfare agents may disrupt the use of large rockets and medium-range missiles. In this situation, close combat as a way to solve the problem before the fighter becomes inevitable.

    Thus he Su-30MKI fighters, being in the mode of super-maneuverability, capable of performing launches missiles at the enemy. "Yes, we have carried out launches of missiles" air-to-air "mode on super maneuverability" - V.Averyanov said.

    He noted that all fighters have a super-maneuverability, created on the basis of the Su-30MKI fighters, including Su-30cm.

    According V.Averyanova only supermaneuverability dignity Su-30MKI is not exhausted. This aircraft is one of the first in the world to have onboard radar with a phased antenna array that can simultaneously detect, track and attack a large number of targets.

    An important advantage of the Su-30MKI V.Averyanov called a crew of two pilots. ". It is definitely an advantage in any case, the two performing combat tasks better than one", - he said. The Su-30MKI is very large by the standards of a fighter, range and, accordingly, the duration of the flight. In the long flight of the second member of the crew - is a big help. Especially when you have to fly in difficult conditions and on remote countryside - the sea, the desert, polar ice, said the test pilot.

    "That is why the two-seat fighter Su-30MKI purchase extended coastal and country looks logical choice and Su-30cm naval aviation of the Russian Navy." - V.Averyanov said.
