New Delhi: India on Tuesday test-fired the anti-ship model of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile within the Andaman and Nicobar Islands territory. The check firing was carried out by the Indian Navy. The missile carried out extremely complicated manoeuvres and hit the bull’s-eye.
“BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile in Anti-Ship mode was successfully test-fired today at 9 am against a decommissioned ship,” the Defence Ministry stated.
BrahMos, a mix of the names of Brahmaputra and Moskva rivers, is a supersonic cruise missile collectively developed by Defence Analysis and Improvement Organisation (DRDO) and the NPO Mashinostroyenia, one of many main aerospace enterprises in Russia, as a BrahMos Aerospace three way partnership, which grew to become the BrahMos Aerospace Personal Restricted.
The missile has established itself as a serious pressure multiplier in modern-day complicated battlefields with its impeccable anti-ship and land-attack capabilities with multi-role and multi-platform talents and has been deployed in all of the three wings of the Indian armed forces.
The primary launch of BrahMos passed off in 2001 and until date quite a few launches have taken place from numerous ships, cell autonomous launchers and Su-30 MKI plane, making it a flexible weapon.
The Indian Navy said, “Indian Navy hones its combat readiness as BrahMos AShM launched by INS Ranvijay strikes target ship at max range with pinpoint accuracy in Bay of Bengal.”
INS Ranvijay is a Rajput-class destroyer warship of the Indian Navy.
