In India: in cooperation with Russia, we will increase the combat radius of BrahMos missiles to 600 km

12

An official from the Indian Ministry of Defense spoke in an interview with Indian media about important changes regarding the design of the BraMos rocket. The materials of the Indian press say that between India and Russia, agreements were reached on increasing the radius of action of a supersonic cruise missile.


If you believe these messages, then the agreement is to increase the combat radius of the BrahMos missiles to 600 km. In cooperation, India intends to obtain just such a parameter of missiles.

An Indian military official noted that India has entered the missile technology control program. It is alleged that under this program the country can participate in the development of missiles of various types, including shorter and medium ranges.

In the Indian media it is noted that the possibility of increasing the combat radius of the BrahMos missiles was discussed back in October last year at the Intergovernmental Commission.

In India, it is reminded that at the moment, the maximum range for hitting targets with the BraMos missile, both land and sea, is about 300 km. Thus, the updated design will allow the racket to increase this range to 600 km.

Military analyst Rahul Bhonsl notes that this is a very promising area of ​​cooperation with Russia.

Expert:

If, with a combat radius of 300 km, the BraMos rockets had to be deployed closer to the targets, the new modification will allow for a more flexible approach to basing.

    А давайте индуса одного нашего руководителя, главу "...космоса" передадим! И обязательства выполним, и конкуренцию ограничим - вдруг индусы решат с ракетой этой на внешние рынки выходить?

      what if the Indians decide to enter foreign markets with this rocket?

      =======
      Им это будет очень непросто сделать! Рынок сбыта ракет типа "Яхонт" - крайне ограничен - при всех своих безусловно, outstanding qualities - these missiles have prohibitive cost! Тот же "Брамос" обходится индийским ВМС по $ 20 млн за штуку! Такое "удовольствие" могут позволить себе далеко не все, а только достаточно богатые страны! Причем те, которые расчитывают противостоять высокотехнологимными флотами, в.т.ч. имеющими АУГ.
      До сих пор их ("Яхонты") приобрели у нас только Сирия, Вьетнам, Индонезия да Индия!

      So it’s good what they want. We just need to teach them to link these Wishlist with their actions in the field of military-technical cooperation and not only.

        Frankly, I personally would have thought 10 times, but is it worth going with them on this cooperation? Now the mattress regional committee will begin to put pressure on the Indians and those legs uphill. And we have losses and technology leak.

    Well, yes, she took it right (rocket) and flew 600 km. Do they even think about the consequences of this? Recently, I personally have completely neglected them. Many of our bureaucrats also began to behave this way, why would it ?! fellow

      just like that she took (rocket) and flew 600 km.

      The fact is that the non-export version, that is, Onyx, flies 600 km. Export Bramos, due to limitations, flies 300 km. The new version of Onyx-M has a range of 800 km. This can all be found on the Internet.

    Indeed, India is the 35th country in the regime of limiting missile technologies and can develop such missiles together with other participants.
    China does not enter into non-proliferation agreement

      India cannot be left behind from Pakistan. By the way, does anyone know what ballistic RCC Pakistan has recently experienced?
      Pakistan's naval forces have successfully tested anti-ship ballistic missiles in the North Arabian Sea. This was reported by Dispatch News Desk (DND).
      В обнародованном 25 апреля заявлении, официальный представитель военно-морского флота Пакистана отметил, что начальник штаба ВМФ страны адмирал Зафар Махмуд Аббаси лично присутствовал при ракетных стрельбах. В заявлении говорится, что военные корабли и самолеты ВМС Пакистана выпустили противокорабельные ракеты класса "земля-поверхность".

    Не совсем понятен ваш пассаж насчет того, "думают ли они о последствиях". Что конкретно они должны думать??

    Теоретически. Хотя о ЛИ я что-то не слышал, это во-1. А во-2, если верить открытой информации, то возникает очень много вопросов относительно "Оникс-М"

    Я не особо бы доверял информации от украинского источника. Да, испытания противокорабельной ракеты были. Ракета называется Harbah (Харбах), но это не баллистическая, а крылатая противокорабельная ракета. Создана на основе ракет Hatf-VII "Бабур" (на основе какой из модификаций - Бабур-1, Бабур-2 или Бабур-3 - информации нет). Помимо этой ракеты испытывалась новая крылатая ракета Hatf-VIII "Raad-2". Но это тоже крылатая ракета. Из баллистических за последние 10 месяцев есть информация об испытании трех ракет - "Газвани" (она же Hatf-III), Шахин-1 и "Шахин-2". Но это не противокорабельные ракеты...
