110 kilometers range and Mach 4.5 capable Astra Mark 1 BVRAAM missile will give them a significant edge as it features smokeless propulsion system and advanced electronic counter counter measures to negate jamming by hostile aircraft.

India has been pitching Astra Mk1 BVRAAM missile to all Sukhoi Su-30 operators as the Indian Air Force has already started replacing the Russian R-77 BVRAAM with Astra Mk 1 and will soon get the 160 kilometers range Astra Mark 2 which will also be available for the export market. IgMp
