"For confrontation with China": the Philippines buys Indian anti-ship missiles BrahMos

The Russian-Indian BrahMos rocket is exported. According to the Janes portal, the Philippines became the first foreign buyer of the rocket.


According to the publication, the Philippines is purchasing the BrahMos anti-ship missile as part of the confrontation with China over the disputed islands. On March 2, 2021, the governments of India and the Philippines signed an agreement to supply BrahMos missiles for the benefit of the Philippine Armed Forces. At the moment, the details of the deal have not been disclosed, there is no information about the delivery time or the number of ordered missiles. Earlier it was reported that the anti-ship missiles will go into service with the coastal forces of the Philippine army.

The fact that the Philippines became the first buyer of the BrahMos anti-ship missiles is not surprising, the talk about the likely purchase of these missiles by Manila was conducted back in 2019. At the same time, information appeared in Indian government circles that Russia did not object to the supply of missiles to foreign buyers.

In the same 2019, the Minister of Defense of the Philippines announced his intention to purchase two batteries of anti-ship missiles for the country's Navy in 2020 as part of an intergovernmental agreement with New Delhi. However, the deal was postponed for reasons unknown to us and took place only now.

For India itself, the sale of its own production of anti-ship missiles to the Philippines will bring not only financial benefits, but also strengthen its position in the confrontation with China.

    Brahmos is not exactly an Indian rocket after all.
    BrahmaputraMOSqua is more our rocket than Indian.
    And what will our "best friends" from the Middle Kingdom say to this?
    I don't think Big SI will like it ...

      They won't say anything. BrahMos is made on the basis of our complex P 800 / 3K55 Onyx / Yakhont - SS-N-26 STROBILE.
      Rocket development began in the early 80s. Throwing launch in 87g. Introduced into service in the early 90s. Further terms to the right, there was no money in the country. In February 1998, an agreement was signed with India for the joint creation of the BrahMos missile system.
      Our brains and technology, Indian money. hi

    Sells India, which does not care what China thinks, tk. in contradiction. So, there are no complaints against us. We also do not like something about the behavior of China, but we do not interfere in their affairs and continue to "be friends."

    The main thing in this deal is that it is not American.

      I think not, but there are plenty of ours in it, so in any case, Russia is the winner.

        I think no ,

        Why ? Joint production, shares - equally. So export profits should come anyway. And the Indians are unlikely to cheat, because their production depends on our components.
        Here is China, that would - yes, it would send, as it sent with a contract on the Su-27, Su-30 and is now going to send on a joint wide-body.
