In this news, we discuss the India successfully test-fires naval version of BrahMos missile.
On Sunday, a naval version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully tested from a locally built Indian Navy stealth destroyer in the Arabian Sea, officials said. The missile was fired from INS Chennai, a stealth destroyer, and hit the target with pinpoint accuracy after performing “extremely complex” maneuvers, they said. “BrahMos as a primary strike weapon” will ensure the invincibility of the warship by engaging long-range naval surface targets, thereby making the destroyer another deadly Indian Navy platform, “the ministry said. of the Defense in a press release.
BrahMos Aerospace, an Indo-Russian joint venture, produces the supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, airplanes, or land platforms. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), BrahMos Aerospace and the Indian Navy for the “success” of the missile test firing. DRDO Chairman G Satheesh Reddy also praised the scientists and all personnel involved in the test firing of the missile which he says will increase the capabilities of the Indian armed forces in many ways.
In recent weeks, India has tested a number of missiles, including a new version of the BrahMos supersonic surface-to-surface cruise missile and the Rudram-1 anti-radiation missile. India also carried out successful test fires of a laser guided anti-tank guided missile and a nuclear-capable hypersonic missile “Shaurya”. The successful test firing of Rudram-1 was considered a milestone as it is the first anti-radiation weapon developed in India. The missile flight tests took place amid the war between India and China in eastern Ladakh.
In May of last year, the Indian Air Force successfully tested the aerial version of the BrahMos missile from a Su-30 MKI fighter jet. On September 30, India successfully tested a new version of the surface-to-surface version of the BrahMos.
The range of the new ground attack version of the missile has been extended to 400 km from the original 290 km. India has already deployed a significant number of original BrahMos missiles and other key assets in several strategic locations along the de facto border with China in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.
