MBDA and India's Bharat Dynamics Ltd. (BDL) have signed on to set up a Final Assembly, Integration & Test (FAIT) facility for the ASRAAM air-to-air missile system in India. The same facility can also theoretically be expanded to build the CAMM surface-to-air system as well, should the need arise. The ASRAAM has already been integrated with the Jaguar strike aircraft of the IAF and by the looks of it might expand to other types as well replacing a bunch of older WVRAAMs like R550 Magic, R-73 etc. (like on Tejas, and might end up being the first country to integrate ASRAAM with the Rafale).
WASHINGTON (SBG) - Since 2001, the U.S. has spent $83 billion on Afghan security forces, through training and equipment.

“We built them a pretty amazing war chest and now all of it is in the hands of the Taliban," said Open The Books' Adam Andrzejewski to Jan Jeffcoat on The National Desk. “We know that last month, as late as July, seven new helicopters were being delivered in the capital city of Kabul.”

How much U.S. military equipment does the Taliban now control?

“We've made the Taliban into a major U.S. arms dealer for the next decade,” said Andrzejewski. “They now control 75,000 military vehicles. This is about 50,000 tactical vehicles, 20,000 Humvees they control about 1,000 mine-resistant vehicles, and even about 150 armored personnel carriers.”

According to Andrzejewski, there are also about 208 airplanes and helicopters. Some U.S. equipment given to Afghan security forces is currently unaccounted for, including missing military drones.

“We found a Federal Audit that detailed up to $200 million worth of drones that had disappeared,” said Andrzejewski. “We don't know where 600,000 weapons are within the country.”
