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


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.

      =======
      It will be very difficult for them to do it! The sales market for Yakhont missiles is extremely limited - for all its certainties, outstanding qualities - these missiles have prohibitive cost! The same "Bramos" costs the Indian Navy $ 20 million apiece! Not everyone can afford such a “pleasure”, but only fairly rich countries! Moreover, those who expect to oppose high-tech fleets, including having AUG.
      Until now, they ("Yakhonts") have been purchased from us only by Syria, Vietnam, Indonesia and India!

        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.

      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).
      In a statement released on April 25, an official from the Pakistani Navy noted that Admiral Zafar Mahmoud Abbashi, chief of staff of the country's Navy, was personally present at the missile firing. The statement said that Pakistan’s warships and aircraft launched ground-to-surface anti-ship missiles.

    Your passage about "whether they think about the consequences" is not entirely clear. What exactly should they think ??

    In theory. Although I haven’t heard something about LEE, this is one. And secondly, if you believe the open information, then a lot of questions arise regarding Onyx-M

    I would not really trust information from a Ukrainian source. Yes, there were anti-ship missile tests. The missile is called Harbah, but it’s not a ballistic, but a cruise anti-ship missile. It was created on the basis of Hatf-VII "Babur" missiles (on the basis of which of the modifications - Babur-1, Babur-2 or Babur-3 - there is no information). In addition to this missile, the new Hatf-VIII Raad-2 cruise missile was tested. But this is also a cruise missile. Of the ballistic data for the past 10 months, there is information about the testing of three missiles - Gazvani (aka Hatf-III), Shahin-1 and Shahin-2. But these are not anti-ship missiles ...
