Navy tests advanced version of BrahMos missile

During a test on Saturday, the Indian Navy successfully fired an advanced version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a stealth destroyer in the Indian Ocean, demonstrating the missile’s increasing strike capability. 

In a statement, the Indian Navy stated the missile hit its intended target with pinpoint accuracy after traversing an extended range trajectory and performing complex maneuvers. The missile was test-fired from stealth destroyer INS Chennai. 

“The Indian Navy successfully demonstrated the accuracy of an extended-range land-attack Brahmos supersonic cruise missile from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai,” the Indian Navy said in its statement. 

Both Brahmos missile and INS Chennai are made-in-India and highlight the high-end technology of Indian missile and ship-building prowess. The missile flies at 2.8 Mach, or almost three times the speed of sound. 

BrahMos Aerospace, an Indo-Russian venture, produces the supersonic cruise missiles that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or land platforms.
