The range of BrahMos missiles in India was increased to 500 km, accuracy - up to a meter


A new version of the BraMos cruise missile of joint production of Russia and India will be tested this year. It will have a range of more than 300 kilometers and greater accuracy. The range of the updated rocket in India will be 500 kilometers. In this case, it will hit the target with an accuracy of one meter. The previous version in range did not exceed 300 kilometers and had an accuracy of 10 meters.


The new BraMos will be equipped with improved sensors and tracking devices. This will be done immediately after the relevant studies.

India will be able to produce rockets with a range of more than 300 kilometers after joining the "elite club" of countries that have recognized the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR). The countries included in this structure have agreed not to transfer to other states technologies that allow them to produce missiles with a range of over 300 kilometers. It was precisely because of these limitations that India was not allowed to take advantage of the Russian development of long-range missiles. Russia did not have the right to share them.

Currently, the BrahMos missile can be used for land, air, submarine and surface launch systems. The structure of the armed forces of India includes three missile regiments of such missiles located in the west of the country near the Pakistan border. Another such unit is stationed in Arunachal Pradesh.

BrahMos is the result of military-technical cooperation between the Russian Federation and India. Its name consists of the names of two rivers - the Brahmaputra and Moscow.

The Bramos rocket platform, already adopted by the Indian army, its naval and air forces, is now on display at DefExpo 2020 in the Indian city of Lucknow.

Here you can see how closely Russia and India cooperate in the military-industrial sphere. For example, in the Russian exhibition you can see the layout of the Russian Ka-226T helicopter, which will soon be made in India. The T-90 tank, which has long been successfully produced by our Indian partners, is also presented at the exhibition.

In addition, Russia presents products of the Kalashnikov concern, a new artillery module for infantry fighting vehicles and much more.

According to the deputy director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation Vladimir Drozhzhov, over the entire existence of the Russian Federation, our country has sold India $ 70 billion worth of weapons.

    Hindus, unlike the Chinese, though more capricious in choosing equipment, do not steal anything from us, and honestly, they do it under license.

      This is our market, and the rocket from our components, even if the Indians promote it on the market, this is our market, especially since India has no restrictions and sanctions.

    Last time on a branch, a colleague fiercely argued with me about the range of BrahMos. I was advised not to talk about the actual range until the appearance of "information in the open press." But I did not have to wait long!
    About accuracy. Up to a meter, you can only select ECO. Apparently ours and it was delivered to the Indians.

        Optoelectronic guidance system. She puts lighter products "a pretty penny", because they have less moment of inertia, so they are easier to control.

              On tanks may Israeli Spike-NLOS. Range up to 25 km, optoelectronic guidance on the target. If there is an OEC on Bramos, then it’s “simpler” - they don’t shoot individual tanks at 500 km with cruise missiles. But on fixed objects - launchers, command posts, positions of heavy artillery, etc. - yes. On ships, Bramos can also "work" with the OES, because, due to the size of the vessel, it is practically motionless for a super (hyper) sound rocket.

    Why do we give some kind of international structure our sovereign right to decide to whom we can sell rocket technologies and to whom not, and call this the "elite club"? Are future amendments to the Constitution against this?

    India was the first country to adopt a single cruise missile for three environments. More than 70 times from land, surface / underwater and air systems. And EVERYTHING is successful. WORLD record, however.

      An air missile is essentially a new development, albeit with a certain unification.

      Like Iskander and the Dagger.

      Aviation, ships, land? And Harpoon, Exoset are not considered? These from under water still work. Yes, and unsuccessful launches were at Bramos

      In your opinion, the use of the X-35 from airplanes, helicopters, surface ships and coastal complexes is not a record. And Onyx, which is also launched from submarines, surface ships, DBK and aviation? Although BrahMos is the Onyx adapted for production in India

    good Cool! fellow
    stop And these are not those missiles whose analogues under the name "Caliber" fly at a distance of up to 2 km?
    According to senior government officials at the beginning of February 2019, the range of a sea-based Caliber-NK missile, if transferred to land, will be up to 2,6 thousand km

    You are on the right track, gentlemen, Indians! Keep it up! Fifteen years and [3x (2600: 500) = 15] will not pass and you will have everything ... yes

      I give a hint: The Russian analogue of Bramos, the yacht flies the same 500 km.

        "Yakhont" is an export version of Onyx, the father of BrahMos, and just for this reason, its range is up to 300km, and of Brahmos

    We ourselves are participating in this "international structure." And some restrictions should always be in order to restrain the arms race.
    I think that it doesn’t matter to us whether some country of the same Georgia will deliver ballistic missiles with a range of 300 km or deliver missiles with a range of 2000 km. Limitations should be in any case. But members of this "elite club" among "their own" can export the same missiles, but with parameters exceeding the restrictions imposed by the MTCR
    And the upcoming changes to the Constitution are aimed against those situations when we were forced to look first of all at the concluded agreements, and not at our own constitution. These are most often political and legal issues.

    This is the same development. In the early 2000s, we dragged Sukhoi's car with the Onyx suspended from the fuselage to all MAKS air shows. But the hands did not reach equipping their own aviation with such a complex. Two rockets became a new development. "Bramos-NG", which is slightly smaller than just "Bramos" and a missile with a range of over 300 km

    And what, "Onyx" and "Caliber" - = is it like twin brothers? Two completely different missiles, two completely different design bricks. Moreover, the olna is supersonic, and the second subsonic have already become analogues? And at 2600, the Caliber will be able to fly only on condition that it has either half the warhead weight, or if this warhead is nuclear. From that, from the ground they will shoot such a rocket or from a ship - nothing will change. So a high-ranking source in government agencies stupid

      Today, Onyx anti-ship missiles are in service with several countries at once. In Russia, this complex was installed on a Project 1234.7 “Nakat” rocket ship, on Project 21631 “Buyan-M” ships, as well as on the Severodvinsk MPLATKR. In 2014, this missile was installed on 35 Su-30 SM aircraft. In addition, Onyx is the basis of the Bastion coastal complex.

    The accuracy of hitting targets up to a meter is impressive. We worked with an error at these ranges up to 5 meters. And it was a triumph.

    Actually, the Russian analogue of Bramos is Onyx. "Yakhont", as well as "Jasper" - export options. And even now it flies 600-650 km
