What missile is this? It doesn't look like AKD-10 because the body diameter is uniform.


Do you have the full image of the helicopter firing it?
Blue arrow 7 is equivalent to AKD-10 which uses Semi-Active Laser Homing, Blue Arrow 21, on the other hand, features a round head, which likely indicates a new form/additional form of guidance.

I suspect that it's equipped with millimetre wave radar seeker for fire and forget capability like the AGM-114L. Again, I'm surprised by the complete lack of info on the blue arrow series of missiles, considering that they are for exports.

We've had confirmation before that the BA-21 is MMW guided.

We've never seen the domestic variant in service before, but this is clearly it.

Doe we have any technical specifications of the BA-21?

Apart from it being MMW guided, I don't really recall.
