Solar Industries India Limited (SOLARINDS) is gearing up for a new challenge, as confirmed by Chairman Satyanarayan Nandlal Nuwal. The Indian Air Force (IAF) has reportedly requested the development of a 1000kg (one-tonne) air bomb. This large-scale weapon is likely to be part of the Make-II Defence Production program, aimed at bolstering domestic production of critical defence equipment.

The new bomb project follows the successful testing of SOLARINDS’ indigenously developed 125kg bomb on Su-30MKI fighter jets. Similar to the 125kg bomb, the new one is expected to be a universal weapon, compatible with existing IAF aircraft like the Su-30MKI and Mirage-2000. This interchangeability would provide pilots with operational flexibility and streamline logistics.

While details are still emerging, the 1000kg bomb is expected to significantly enhance the IAF’s firepower. Its destructive potential would likely be similar to the American MK-84 bomb, a widely used weapon in this category.

The involvement of the Solar Group, a Nagpur-based explosives manufacturer with expertise in the 125kg bomb project, bodes well for the new endeavour. This project signifies a crucial step towards IAF self-reliance in heavyweight air-to-ground weaponry.

The successful development and integration of this bomb would be a major leap forward for Indian defence capabilities. It would not only equip the IAF with a powerful domestic weapon but also demonstrate India’s growing prowess in designing and manufacturing advanced weaponry.
