I’m thinking we better try real hard not to PO India.
China is no friend of ours and India is rapidly becoming a
very capable world power that can counter the Chinese
in some ways. Would hate to see Obammy turn the good
relations we have had with India into a squabble.
Offending allies seems to be the only talent he has besides
sucking up to our enemies.

Production of the ARM, which are among the most advanced missiles, is being undertaken on priority basis by the Defence Research and Development Laboratory (DRDL), which specialises in the missile development.
Isn't this the Indian govt. agency that shot it's mouth off about being able to hit Chinese cities with a new ICBM a couple of weeks ago, stirring up an annoyed Chinese response?
Maybe the India govt. leadership should tell the press department of this agency to quiet down. Most nations don't trumpet every defense development so insistently - the other half of Teddy Roosevelt's "carry a big stick" saying is to "speak softly", and it's sensible advice in general.
I wonder if it’s fooled by microwave ovens?

That AS-17 Krypton ARM looks just like the U.S. Vietnam war era AGM-78 Standard ARM.
Bookmark, for later enjoyment.
