Indian Air Force fires BrahMos missile

25th October 2019 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Indian Air Force has carried out successful firings of the BrahMos surface-to-surface missile at Trak Island in the Andaman Nicobar group of islands, the Indian Ministry of Defence announced on 23 October.

The twin firings were carried out as part of training, with the BrahMos land attack cruise missiles engaging the designated mock targets with direct hits at a range of 300km.

These firings follow testing of the land and air versions of the missile at Pokhran in May, with the latter being deployed from the Su-30MKI fighter aircraft.

The 2.8 Mach BrahMos is a supersonic cruise missile developed by BAPL. The missile is designed for launch from stand-off ranges to engage land or sea targets deep inside enemy territory with precision.
