European consortium MBDA has offered its 300km-range Taurus stand-off missile system in response to a request for information issued by the Indian Air Force (IAF).

The Taurus air-to-ground missiles are capable of hitting hard targets such as bunkers and concrete shelters from a stand-off range and can track targets without the GPS navigation system.

The IAF has already been briefed about the operational advantages of the missile and the company is planning to conduct a test-firing of the missile in November at a field-firing range in South Africa.

Press Trust of India has reported that the long-range weapons, if finalised, will be equipped on IAF Sukhois aircraft as part of a modernisation programme.

MBDA has also offered its MICA and Meteor missiles, which can be integrated into different IAF aircraft.
