Air launched version of the Brahmos can't be offered atm unless they have a heavy fighter like the Su-30 or F-15 size which also requires modification of the center pylon capable of carrying the current version's weight

Might as well create an anti-ship version of Astra AAM eliminating the need for Russian approvals and pitch it to those interested in the air-launched version of Brahmos

NASM will have follow up longer range variants from current short range version for general AShM portfolio from India.

Air launched and longer range brahmos etc wont be offered internationally for quite some time as these have larger demand within India first that will take up their production capacity for a while.

The exports will focus around the original (export ~ 290 km MTCR) variant like what the Philippines acquired.
