    Some of the images are really old, but only now surfacing. Like the Arjun photo which is from the 80s.



    Also had Trishul SAM on display. We know that's gone.

    *Gun barrel appears to be curved because the paper isn't flat.



    Arjun MBTs early, early, early prototypes.

    They obviously went forward with the bottom German influenced design.

    Actually, not gone but a 'completed' project. The system was developed to the original requirements but the interceptor did not have further growth potential in terms of changing requirements. Trishul system can be brought back online with the integration of VL-Mica or any highly maneuverable interceptor.

    Probably an inert bomb or a concrete bomb to test the CEP of the guidance kit. A real 500Kg bomb landing between 5-10 meters of the target would have blown the structure apart.

    ^ trial and error it seem, well they could have made a better structure and test elsewhere. It is hilarious what they have written Target approach Target Hit :P

    IMHO there is two target building first pics bomb and first building structure 2nd pics target hit centre 1sr structure and see second building.
    this type situation come up when try too much from picture

    The POV might not be entirely perpendicular to the plane of travel of the LGB.

    As far as I know, it is not powered by any propulstion system, so it might be just projectile motion so it is in a curve. Also they state the accuracy to be 10m so if the bomb is roughly 3m in length it looks like it fell within that range of the target. I might be wrong though, because I used a wooden ruler to compare the lengths and I don't know the actual length of the bomb
