Indian sailors successfully test sea-launched BrahMos missile

Indian sailors successfully test sea-launched BrahMos missile

On Sunday, the Indian Navy successfully tested a BrahMos missile launched from a warship in the Arabian Sea, an agency spokesman said. At the same time, it is said that the missile managed to accurately hit the target at a distance of several hundred nautical miles.

The BrahMos missile was fired from the Kolkata-class destroyer. The Indian Ministry of Defense said that the missile is equipped with a warhead developed by the Defense Research Organization (DRDO).

The Navy said the BrahMos missile reinforces India's commitment to defense self-sufficiency. Earlier, the Indian Air Force also successfully tested the BrahMos missile from the Su-30MKI aircraft. This test was carried out by the Indian Air Force in December last year.

According to the Indian Air Force, the air-launched missile can hit targets at a distance of about 400 km.

The name of the cruise missile BrahMos is derived from the words Brahmaputra and Moscow. This is a joint Russian-Indian project. The first launch of a sample of such a rocket took place in 2001. The Russian-Indian enterprise itself began its activities 3 years before the first launch in 1998.

      Definitely, from the Arabian Sea to Zhmerinka, the flight is less than 400 km.

    It's good that it's not from the words Ganges and Don. laughing

    India is arming itself primarily against Pakistan and China. Who is closer to us? We are not talking about alliances. Not that case. Hope it doesn't hurt us.

      This is a situation with two chairs, but in which one cannot really choose one of them.

    Indian sailors successfully test sea-launched BrahMos missile

    The information is well presented.
    But the title of the news...

    Indian fishermen once gathered to go on ships and catch seafood, and they decided to test the rocket, the place of which they accidentally found. Indian sailors separately, the Indian Navy separately, and the missile separately.

    I remember just in 1998 in the 11th grade I read an article about the joint cooperation begun on this rocket, etc., etc. ... And now 25 years have passed and I am reading about the successful launch of this rocket by India!
