Wonder whether it can be developed further and inducted for AAM and SAM role as well.

Thanks Shiv.

@ Kris,

It is an AAM.

This Astra BVRAAM missile development will hasten the RF seeker development and manufacturing in India with most probably Israelis help...
After mastering the technology it can be introduced into SAM system like Akash and make it a body to body hit to kill missile...
So it is really progressing in the right direction...

Best part was that it is smokeless. Looks awesome. Hope the hits part gets validated soon and the range is also extended.

Two of our biggest tests, ASTRA and 3000 km SLBM, came during elections when almost everyone was busy covering politics. One had to really dig to get information. Good timing by DRDO.

I am sure more things got done during this phase but is not in public domain.
