ME­TEOR BVR MIS­SILE FOR IAF’S RUS­SIAN PLAT­FORMS

SP's Aviation - - News -

In­dia’s plans to equip its Rus­sian SU30MKI and in­dige­nous Light Com­bat Air­craft (LCA) Te­jas with long range Me­teor be­yond vis­ual range (BVR) mis­siles, may face hur­dles as its Euro­pean man­u­fac­tur­ers have in­formed the gov­ern­ment that they would not in­te­grate their weapon on any Is­raeli or Rus­sian plat­form. The In­dian Air Force has plans of equip­ping the LCA with the Me­teor mis­siles, but Is­raeli firms have been cho­sen for sup­ply­ing the radar and elec­tronic war­fare for the plane. This can also have an im­pact on the Air Force’s plans to up­grade its front­line and main­stay SU-30MKI. How­ever ef­forts are on to find a way out.
