Air-launched, anti-ship variant (In induction), Air-launched, land-attack variant (In induction). [17] It is based on the Russian P-800 Oniks cruise missile and other similar sea-skimming Russian cruise missile technology. [18][19][20] The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service. On October 17, the Naval version of the BrahMos was successfully test-fired from Indian Navy’s indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai, hitting a target in the Arabian Sea. The extended range version of the BrahMos missile, which the Navy will get, is capable of hitting targets as far as 450 kilometers away. [224][225] The defence ministry reported that due to the size and hull specifications of the BrahMos, few if any of its new ships will be able to accommodate it. [37][38][39] Initially, Russia supplied 65% of the BrahMos' components, including its ramjet engine and radar seeker. This was necessitated by the increased order book of the missile system, with orders having been placed by both the Indian Army and Navy. [186][187], Missile is likely to be ready in late 2022. "BrahMos surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile featuring indigenous booster and airframe section along with many other 'Made in India' sub-systems was successfully flight tested for designated range at 1030 hours today," the defence ministry said. It is a joint venture between the Russian Federation's NPO Mashinostroyeniya and India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), who together have formed BrahMos Aerospace. It can engage ground targets from an altitude as low as 10 metres for surgical strikes without any collateral damage. [81], On 10 January 2009, it was reported that two Indian Air Force Su-30MKI fighter jets were sent to Russia for a retrofit program that would enable them to launch the missile. The real value of the BrahMos missile can be leveraged during opening stages of a conflict. The Air launched version: On November 22, 2017, Brahmos was successfully flight-tested for the first time from the IAF frontline fighter aircraft Sukhoi-30MKI against a sea-based target in the Bay of Bengal and has since been successfully tested multiple times. Brahmos is a universal long-range supersonic cruise missile system that can be launched from land, sea and air. According to The Times of India, the BrahMos missiles have been deployed in Ladakh and in Arunachal Pradesh as India is engaged in a military confrontation with China for the past few months. The DRDO successfully tested an 'extended range' variant of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, news agency ANI reported on Thursday.. ANI reported the extended-range variant was fitted with an indigenously built rocket booster.The BrahMos was developed as a joint venture by India and Russia and was first tested in 2001. The Missile Technology Control Regime The BrahMos has a relatively short range—only 190 miles (290 kilometers)—under half the range of the … BALASORE, ODISHA: As part of capability enhancement endeavour, a major milestone was achieved on 11th March 2017 when an enhanced version of the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile with an Extended Range (ER) was successfully test-fired from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) Chandipur at sea in Balasore, off the coast of Odisha. The test firing of the missile comes at a time India and China are locked in a bitter border standoff in eastern Ladakh. In a move to further strengthen the firepower of its warships, Indian Navy has moved a proposal to acquire state of the art 38 extended range BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles. [51] According to BrahMos Corporation, another test of the new missile was to be conducted within one month,[52] but it was eventually conducted on 4 March 2009 and was deemed successful. [18][193] The air-launched version has a smaller booster and additional tail fins for added stability during launch. Sources said while India is working to extend the range of the BrahMos missile, the weapons that will be be exported will be the ones with a “normal range” of 290 km. The test took place two days after Indian media reported that Su-30MKI jets equipped with BrahMos missiles was deployed “in sufficient numbers” to the Ladakh region in the Himalayas to counter China. Test carried out under PJ-10 project of Defence Research and Development Organisation under which the missile was launched with an indigenous booster.

The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land platforms. Cruise missile "BrahMos" with a range of over 400 km has been successfully tested in India. [76], The missile was also planned to arm the Indian Navy's Ilyushin Il-38 and Tupolev Tu-142 maritime patrol and anti-submarine aircraft with 6 missiles per aircraft, but this could not be made possible due to insufficient ground clearance of the IL-38, high cost of modifying the Tu-142 and the questionable benefits of modifying an ageing fleet. [89][90] This made Indian Air Force the first in the world to have successfully tested such a type of air launched trisonic-class missile on a sea-based target. Jointly developed by India and Russia Brahmos is based on the Yakhont missile, whose actual range is 600 kms. [77] To reduce the missile's weight to 2.55 tons, many modifications were made like using a smaller booster, adding fins for airborne stability after launch, and relocating the connector. (Photograph:AFP) Russia and India's joint venture . BrahMos missile, developed as part of a joint venture between India and Russia, was originally built with a range of 290 kilometres. It has a diameter of 70 cm and a wingspan of 1.7 m.[192] It can gain a speed of Mach 2.8, and has a maximum range of 450 km. Explaining the significance of these tests, a retired IAF commander said, “While the tests of land, ship and air launched BrahMos have been done time and again, it is rare that they are being tested back-to-back that too in the Indian Ocean Region. BrahMos successfully hit the intended target in two and a half minutes of launch. The missile can be fitted on a vertical launcher installed in the pressure hull of the submarine. … China is one of the main nations that has objections about its neighbours getting these missiles for their navies.
