I-Derby Induction

I-Derby,a beyond-visual-range of Air-to-Air Missile, is likely tobe tested by the end of the year, will become the Tejas fighter’s main air-to-air weapon. It can later be equipped in single-engined aircraft with latest extended-range (ER) version of the missile. The I-Derby ER has a range of up to 54nm (100km), with the weapon with a new radar seeker. It can be deployed from a fighter’s rail launchers, or by using a “shove” pyrotechnic charge that jettisons it from a fuselage stores station before its rocket motor ignites. https://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/tejas-nears-missile-test-after-i-derby-integration-439175/
