India has started talks with European defense giant MBDA, for local manufacturing of the Scalp cruise missile that India has acquired as part of the weapons package of the 36 Dassault Rafale fighter jets. idrw.org has been told that IAF plans to integrate Scalp cruise missiles in Indian-developed fighter jets like Mk1A, Mk2, and AMCA.
The scalp Cruise missile is a stealth missile that is designed to escape radar detection and is designed to hit high-value, strongly protected targets deep inside enemy territory.
Bharat Dynamics (BDL) and MBDA, a European missile maker might join hands again for local manufacturing of the missile after they have signed a licensing agreement. BDL and MBDA already make ASRAAM, a Within Visual Range missile that will be replacing all older R-73 WVRAAMs from Russian, French, and Indian fighter jets.
