The Indian Air Force's Directorate of Operations (Offensive)
has formally called for information from global vendors to support the potential acquisition of lightweight all weather "standoff long-range missiles" for its fighter aircraft, with mid course guidance. The RFI
does not specify range or any other parameters, though it indicates the likelihood of series modification for the integration of the missile once selected.
In a separate effort, the IAF has asked for proposals from infrastructure developers to build an integrated air to ground weapons range
on 7,000 acres of land. This will be one of India's largest strike ranges when done.
