    That's a pro indian blog... no need to read it.

    The objectivity and reliability of that article is 0.

    You are quite late Hoom.
    Feel free to point me to the previous discussion of an Air-to-Air variant Suspect
    I did check the last 3 pages which takes us back to Feb 2018 so...

    That's a pro indian blog... no need to read it.
    He's pro Russian.
    He's only pro indian to the extent they buy Russian military tech.
    He's also pro chinese to the extent they buy Russian military tech.

    Russia, India to extend BrahMos supersonic missile’s range to 800 km

    The BrahMos missile had an initial flight range of 280 km. After India joined the missile technology control regime, its range was extended to 450 km

    Which makes it sound like they got the export version (ie less than 300km range) and then the full range Onyx version (450km), and now they are getting the Onyx with Zircon fuel (double range and much higher flight speed).

    Interesting.

    There were rumors, that this was the cause of the last missile testing accident. Using more powerful Zirkon fuel for Oniks.

    That there was an increased radiation level. Perhaps they were testing some nuclear propulsion devices. scratch

    Some of the components might be radioactive, but I rather doubt there is any actual nuclear reaction in the process of propulsion.

    Bananas are naturally radioactive too.

    Everything is radioactive, at some own level.

    South Korea develops a copy of Oniks? Some secret ToT from Russia?

    Probably so is the Korean Onyx.  Korea cooperates with Russia in the field of military.  For example, the KM Sam anti-aircraft system is based on the S 350. The cooperation is very advanced.  Korea opens its factories in Russia and helps rebuild its shipbuilding industry.The new Korean SRBM is probably based on the Iskander M.
