Rocket "BrahMos" covered the distance on the Indian engine

The Indian defense industry has managed to cope with the task of switching to a number of domestic components in the production of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, which is produced at a joint venture with Russia.


According to the publication Financial Express, due to the transition to its own propulsion system, airframe and other critical components of the rocket, it was possible to achieve localization of 70%. On September 30 the new BrahMos was successfully tested.

Driving at a maximum speed of Mach 2,8, high-precision impact weapon overcame the specified maximum flight range [...] The test was successful. The missile traveled more than 400 km without any disruption [...] Now they [domestic components, including the engine] are ready for serial production in India

- notes Financial Express.

We are talking about testing the missile in the LACM version - "ground-to-ground". At the same time, there are modifications designed to be launched from ships and aircraft. The missiles have been supplied to the Navy since 2005. In 2017, the Kyrgyz Republic fired a Su-30MKI fighter, after which it was decided to equip the BrahMos with a combat aviation.

Thus, this CD, created on the basis of the Yakhont (export version of the Russian Onyx), has become a universal and most advanced missile weapon in the Indian troops.

    Their camouflage is still funny - the Indians are in their repertoire.
    Garlands and fringes are missing as in famous photographs of Indian tanks.

    Glider yourself. The engine itself. The head is already even better than ours.
    So you look, and they will do without us completely.
    Soon we will start buying from them, as it happened with China.

      This is probably not a radar, but a plate of relay channel-forming communication with the control panel.

    Green-brown - they have a lot of jungle there, and where there is sand, the left option is suitable.

    Does it bother you that they went the same way as everyone else?
