India Tests Air-Launched BrahMos Missiles

The Indian Navy has successfully demonstrated the lethal land-attack capabilities of the BrahMos cruise missile, affirming India’s tactical edge in the region.

Developed jointly by India and Russia, based on the Russian Oniks missile, the first version of BrahMos was tested in 2001.

Various variants of the versatile missile now arm India’s air force, army and navy. Travelling at speeds of 3430 km/h, they can strike both ships and land-based targets beyond visual range.

In 2021, the Indian Air Force began testing a modified version of the missile that can be used with Sukhoi fighter jets. It has a range of 300 km and can strike targets far beyond visual range.
