      For anyones sake you could atleast post the stats of the missile! Which BTW is still being developed.
      http://www.bharat-rakshak.com/MISSILES/Astra.html
      Length: 3570 mm
      Body Diameter: 178 mm
      Wing Span: Not Known
      Launch Weight: 154 kg

      Air Launcher Weight: 60 kg
      Launch Altitude: Sea level (minimum) to 20 km (maximum).

      Launch Speed: 0.6 to 2.2 Mach.

      Warhead: 15 kg pre-fragmented, high explosive, directional warhead.
      Propulsion: One solid rocket motor.
      Burn Time: 5.4 seconds.

      Range: 80 km head on, 20 km tail chase.

      Maximum Turning Acceleration: 40 Gs (Yaw & Pitch)

      Fuse: Radar Proximity (laser proximity to follow).
      Guidance: Inertial midcourse with data-linked updates, active-radar terminal homing.
      Personally it meets the InAFs needs. What ever that is. Just like the Derby which is light so it's possible to carry more. The draw back is range.
