    Astra MK-II BVR missile utilises a dual-pulse rocket motor. A technology that it shares with the IAF MR-SAM, Akash-NG and RUDRAM-1/NGARM missiles, the latter also being an ejector launched missile.

    Israel makes good kit. Seems the kh--31 can do similar but then again I dont know the specifications of this new missile. From what I gather the older kh-59 kazoo is similar in that it is only ins/gps/glonass guided.

    The only reason that I can think of why an air launched Ballistic missile is being used instead of an ALCM is probably the cost factor.

    Ballistic missiles tend to be cheaper than cruise missiles.

    Solid rocket fuel is more expensive and weighs four time more as it requires and oxidizer.

    Ballistic missiles only make sense if the actively manouver to evade interceptions it approaches the target.
