The rocket is a powerful weapon for the IAF for concealment of foe air protection adequately from enormous deadlock ranges.
With this, the nation has set up indigenous capacity to grow long-extend, air-dispatched against radiation rockets for killing adversary radars, correspondence locales and other radio recurrence emanating targets.
