Still no local solution?

What happened to that one produced by ASTRA microwave?

Vikrant was always meant to have MFSTAR.
Can Vikrant's deck accommodate a 6m dia antenna like ASTRA's? I remember USN also wanted a 6m antenna but have been restricted because Arleigh Burke's deckhouse can accommodate no larger than a ~4.3m radar

Also, ASTRA in 2022's annual report mentioned they were providing 6 Mtrs S-Band AAAU for strategic Naval application of DRDO and was installed in IN's testbed INS Anvesh...any updates on the results?

As part of a future deep refit, perhaps. It would depend on what kind of housing we plan for it. If it's superstructure-based then perhaps not possible, if it's going to be mast-based then it's possible.

But we are talking about like ~15 years in the future. MFSTAR is perfectly capable for any requirement in that time.

Nothing. Everything about INS Anvesh has been extremely secretive. Only things we know are just inferences drawn from pictures here & there.

Both show up for Raisina dialogue conference regularly as well.

Things can get awkward (especially in some interviews) but they are kept apart to reduce the chance of real friction etc.

Its nothing these days compared to US and Russia still going on like nothing happened in the International Space Station and other things after all thats been said and done since 2022....thats really weird to watch, though launch-wise thats set to expire in 2025.

Three pictures that beautifully illustrate the difference in size between the Kamorta-class corvette (~3300 tons)...

...the Shivalik-class frigate (~6200 tons)...

...and in turn the Shivalik next to a Kolkata-class destroyer (~7500 tons):
