Gonna find my target, gonna blow it high
Gonna grab some afternoon delight
My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?
When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
And we know the night is always gonna be there any way
Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Hittin' cars and homes whenever makes the charge ignite
And the thought of killin' you is getting so exciting
Cruise Missiles in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight!

I had to leave my desk because of this. Too good.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nirbhay

This is from the Wikipedia article (I assume it's the same, though this say the chasers were Su-30s). Dispite the great video, it ultimately didn't end too well wikipparently ;).

The third test of the missile took place on 16 October 2015. The missile was to be tested for its low flying capability. The missile in flight was supposed to be brought down from 4800 meters to 20 meters gradually and in stages. Su-30 MKI aircraft videotaped the flight. A press release by the Ministry of Defence stated the missile was launched at 11:38 IST and all initial critical operations such as Booster ignition, Booster separation, Wing deployment and engine start were successfully executed and Nirbhay reached the desired Cruise Altitude. Although the take off was successful after repeated disruptions of countdown, the missile crashed into the Bay of Bengal 11 minutes into its flight after covering only 128 km of its 1000 km range.

Ah OK, thanks, it just seemed the test 3 notes reflect the video better, though the test 2 notes are less specific in detail.

I think we know how they pay for miltech, so your statement is probably better stated as:

"On a side note I'm rather interested in where India's getting the cash for all this new military tech from! Maybe they could lend us some back!"

My head is on a swivel, I just left the WD-40 at home.
