    Minister of State for Defence, Ajay Bhatt, flagged off the Astra Missiles for the Indian Air Force (IAF) at Bharat Dynamics Limited in Hyderabad. The Astra Missiles are indigenously developed and manufactured by DRDO and BDL. The event was attended by senior officials from DRDO, IAF, and BDL.

    The Astra Missiles are beyond visual range air-to-air missiles with a range of over 100 km. They are considered to be the best in their class globally. This achievement positions BDL as one of the few companies capable of manufacturing advanced air-to-air missiles.
