India "upgrade" BrahMos. What is the radius of destruction of targets by these missiles?

20
Indian media reported that the developers of the BrahMos supersonic rockets at this stage lay the foundation for testing types of missiles capable of hitting targets at a distance greater than 800 km. Portal IDNReferring to a source close to the program, the missile with a significantly increased target range will be completed in India before the end of 2018.


Earlier, the range of the BrahMos rocket was increased from 290 to 400 km. In March last year, the "400-km" modification was tested. A significant increase in the range of the rocket, reportedly due to the implementation of a new concept of rocket security. It is noted that earlier India adhered to the restrictions in the format of the Russian-Indian treaty. These restrictions dictated the maximum range of the destruction of targets by missiles in 300 km. That is why the BrahMos declared radius was 290 km.

India "upgrade" BrahMos. What is the radius of destruction of targets by these missiles?


Now, as the newspaper notes, fighters of the Indian Air Force "will be able to attack targets from more significant distances."

BrahMos modifications can be launched from land, air, sea and from a submerged position. India previously launched the world's fastest supersonic cruise missile in the world for the first time (an interpretation of India itself) from the Su-30 aircraft. The rocket successfully hit a target in the Bay of Bengal in November 2017.

From the material:
The launch of Su-30 missiles with a target radius of more than 800 km will significantly increase the coverage of the territory even without taking into account the possibility of refueling in the air.


Aviation The BrahMos modification is about 500 kg lighter than similar sea and ground-based missiles.

    It is noted that India previously adhered to restrictions in the format of the Russian-Indian treaty.
    The Hindus understood that the time had come when the value of the contract is equal to the value of the paper on which it is written. Learn from the states. And increasing the range of missiles significantly increases combat capabilities. Maybe, in light of recent events, it’s time for us to take a closer look at the INF Treaty?

      The deployment of the INF Treaty in Europe is beneficial to the Americans, but not to us. They will threaten Moscow, but not Washington. What is the use of a nuclear explosion in Narva and the response in St. Petersburg?

        In addition to the United States, there is also NATO and there are American bases and dual-purpose launchers. For the United States there is a Strategic Missile Forces.

      The fact that the radius will be increased by the beginning of mass production was planned initially. Just because all copies of our missiles in China have no range limitations. And the Indians simply do not need a rocket with a range of 300 km. hi

    So soon, Russia may remain the only state that respects the treaty ...

      Russia can afford it. And the USA can. They just don’t want to.

      We can zero the entire ball more than once. But this is an extreme option

    fastest supersonic cruise missile in the world
    The DPRK is trying to make it more expensive (with all due respect to the Koreans), so the niche has long been occupied. It would be better to dance, sing and it would turn out more believable.

    However! Unless, of course, this is an ordinary Indian exaggeration. They are very standard, these exaggerations. About twice ... wassat

    Then they will have to increase the length of the rocket, and put on it a more powerful, and therefore more gluttonous engine! belay Will they have one? ??

      Good day. I want to add. If the engine power is increased (for example), then the diameter of the rocket also increases (combustion chamber, nozzle); otherwise, an explosion.

      Often, in such cases, i.e. under "paper" restrictions, the range is limited simply by the volume of the fuel tank.
      But 400 km is a lot, to achieve such a range will have to completely remove the low-altitude portion of the flight.

    And to give target designation at such distances who will request Or does India have similar systems?
    The USA has it, Russia has Liana in experimental combat mode, the satellites plow, and India what?

    Was the aircraft version of Bramos lighter than the sea by 500 kg? Here it is, an opportunity to increase the fuel supply and, consequently, the missile range without major alterations.

      not for that the launch accelerator was removed and lightened the rocket, to again weight it by half a ton and try to push it into the fighter for another 15 years. alterations of the aircraft will take a lot of time and money. It’s easier to halve warheads

        I agree with you ... not for that ... if you "lengthen" the missile, then it "will not fit" into the dimensions of the carrier. Reduce warheads? Not the best option! Now, usually the warhead is equal to 200 kg, but they say about the aviation version that 300 kg ... what happens. If you "halve" your advice?

    In fact, the small box opens much easier, without all the inventions there about the values ​​of the contract and the value of the paper written on it. In 2017, India became a full member of the Wassenaar Accords (if it tells you something) with all the ensuing consequences

    I imagine how the real characteristics of our Onyx can differ from the paper ones. The head developer certainly has more "trump cards in the sleeve".
