Astra BVRAAM, LRCMs In Asia & Other DRDO Updates

Below are information posters and visuals pertaining to the Astra BVRAAM that has been under development for more than a decade. One really wonders why the DRDO at the very outset did not resolve to develop a medium-range air-launched anti-radiation missile (ARM) variant as well as a vertically-launched SAM variant for a futursitic land-mobile/shipborne SHORADS system.
Below are the posters dealing with road-mobile TELs developed so far by both the DRDO and Larsen & Toubro for NLOS-BSMs and TBMs, as well as for strategic ballistic missiles.
Below are visuals of supersonic anti-ship cruise missiles that have already been developed to date by China (air-launched YJ-12), Japan (air-launched ASM-3) and Taiwan (shipborne Hsiung Feng-3).
Below is the DRDO-developed Ku-band active radar seeker (laboratory-model) for the PDV exo-atmospheric interceptor missile that is still under development.
Posted below is data pertaining to the T-72 Combat Improved Ajeya and Arjun Mk1 MBTs, plus data on their indigenously developed APFSDS ammunition. R & D is now underway to introduce 125mm and 120mm APFSDS rounds capable of penetrating 600mm of RHA. 
Below is data on some of the indigenously developed enhancements and import-substitutes for T-72M-1982, T-90S and Arjun Mk1A MBTs.
Further data can be found below on the range of mini-UAVs (MAV) developed indigenously thus far.
The CLGM (below) and not HELINA, should be the favoured standoff precision-guided munition of choice for the HAL-developed Rudra helicopter gunship as well as the projected HAL-developed Light Attack Helicopter (LAH). In fact, this lightweight CLGM also ought to arm the re-engineered NAMICA tracked vehicle.
Posted below is data on the range of IRDE-developed and BEL-built multi-function hand-held thermal imagers. More than 10,000 of each type of such sensors are now being ordered for both India's armed forces and the Central Armed Police Forces.

Below is the data on Tejas MRCA’s Integrated Life-Support System, built by Larsen & Toubro.

Lastly, here’s the multi-calibre assault rifle now being developed by DRDO.
