The first 2 aircraft on top are the Mig-29 and Mig-31. Unlikely candidates for the air launched Brahmos

I agree with the "shive Uncle" dude...
You should write a line or two.
I know a pic is worth a thousand words but ...A line or two helps

the aircraft on top left is a su-30, not mig-29. top left and bottom right are su-30s.

weren't the babus boasting about FOUR Brahmos on an Su-30, which I laughed at?

Where an Indian doesn't differ from a Pakistani:

Hubris
Babudom
Tech conservatism
Lack of imagination

Vincent: Did the claim of 4 BrahMos mounted on a single SU-30 MKI emenate from BrahMos Aerospace, or from some petty clerk in the Indian MoD?

Shiv,

It seems like you are effectively using the copy paste functionality. Please do add some content to your articles...

Vincent: Thanks for the link. The SU 30 airframe cannot handle 3 BrahMos missiles. It's sheer insanity, and very much in tune with Pillai's sudden volte-face where he claims he wants BrahMos to be a solely Indian venture (like GTRE) "to achieve its true potential". Without Russian involvement, the BrahMos-II will never fructify!
