What is the Indian element in this missile? Is it another export in the guise of "Joint Development" courtesy the Ministry of Defence, PMO and DRDO? Or is there any substantial Indian component to it?

to K.R. Ravi,
this "Joint Development" involves replacing some of Israel's components in Barak 8 with Indian components to make LRSAM. The two missiles are essentially the same and basically developed by
Israel. The Indian components were developed to the specifications provided by the Israel. The Israelis even complained about DRDO demanding their tech beyond the basic component specifications that they were required to provide. They didnt need Indian r&d but needed our money, hence the "Joint Development" Ditto for Yakhunt/Brahmos.
