India has tested the advanced BrahMos rocket

The rocket was launched at the Pokhran test site in the western part of the Rajasthan desert at 10.55 local time (8: 25 MSK)


As the official representative of the company BrahMos Aerospace reported from the Rajasthan test site, the rocket was launched from the ground-based mobile autonomous launcher MAL (Mobile Autonomous Launcher), deployed in full configuration with the Mobile Control Post MCP (Mobile Command Post).

After launch, the rocket reached the pre-planned flight trajectory and successfully hit the designated highly protected target out of concrete, reports Military Industrial Courier.

According to a company representative, “this launch fully confirmed the possibility of defending strong targets with the BrahMos missiles.”

The commander of the land forces of India, Lieutenant-General Amit Sharma, who was present at the test together with other commanders of the Indian army, congratulated the crew, who launched the missile, with a successful test result.

The “BrahMos” missile in the Block III variant is designed for highly accurate destruction of highly protected ground targets and at the final part of the trajectory it is climbing and followed by a dive to the target, which allows you to hit the assigned targets during combat operations in mountainous terrain.

Currently, the Indian army has two regiments with BrahMos missiles, and the third regiment is being formed.

In the near future, the Indian government is expected to form a fourth missile regiment with highly maneuverable BrahMos missiles, which will be deployed in mountainous areas.

Recall that in July, India ordered various versions of Russian-Indian supersonic BrahMos cruise missile for 250 billion rupees (4,2 billion dollars).

The BrahMos missile can be launched from land, surface, underwater and air carriers. The ground forces and the Indian Navy have already adopted this missile, and flight tests of the BrahMos air-based missile will be carried out by the Indian Air Force in the near future, BrahMos Aerospace said.

    I wonder how much the Russian side will get, and how much it will reach the budget?

    What can I say ... Joyfully for India and us!

    Here are just the ostentatiousness of the "packs" of missiles at the Indian parade SMILE lol .

    Although our "creatives" are not lagging behind, I remember that the main requirement for the participation of the newest TOR air defense system in the Parade on Red Square were missiles "sticking out" from the BM, without which (according to officials request ) "TOP" was "not formidable enough" fellow

    There was, once, we had a "friend", almost a "bro". We give him weapons, technology, and for free, and for cheap ... Then such garbage happened that suddenly all friendship was gone! Instead, an enemy armed and trained by us appeared on our border. So we also rolled out a nuclear bomb to them, as opposed to the former allies.
    For now, I emphasize - for now !, we have no common ground with India that are of strategic interest to our countries. However, you need to look deeper and more carefully. We need to arm someone with an eye to how, in the case of new garbage, we will fight with what we ourselves have sold or developed.

      Hindi rusi phai-phai! For ever and ever ... And the Indians, in any case, at the expense of the territory of Russia, will not be able to grow, like China, for example ... Yes, and they need it, besides, weights in the form of Pakistan and China are well delayed, and there are many separatists along the borders ... They have someone to fight with, the next 50 years ... Also, after all, the Indians and the United States lick their lips as a client for the purchase of weapons ... They are even ready to sell "unsold" - the newest wunderwafers ... Aegis and F-35. ..

    Let them paint under Khokhloma, if they like, the most important thing is that they fly and perform a combat mission. Good rocket turned out.

    I don’t know, I just typed in the Russian layout and gave it a ride. Maybe the fact that I have a cut-off Internet at work and a computer brake also played a role here, much is not available to me. Emoticons, etc. do not work for me, in general, everything except "insert quote", most likely because of this.

    The fact that the Chinese defense industry was created "with the world on a string" is no secret to anyone.
    And how do the Indians do it?
    From the publication we read about the cooperation of developers with Russian manufacturers.
    But to step out of historical oblivion into the century of atom, electronics, and enviable computer programmers is India's world achievement, where until now steam locomotives have been used on railway transport and the level of diesel locomotive and electric locomotive have not passed ??? !!!
    And in agriculture, instead of tractors, oxen are used everywhere, as a tax ??? !!!

      I think that heating a steam locomotive with a tree is much cheaper than electrification
      as is the use of an ox, which itself feeds and breeds
      And you don’t need a tractor for a couple of hundredth farm

    I am glad that India took this missile seriously enough. Modifications were additionally developed for aircraft, launching a missile from a submarine, and now to destroy fortified targets.
    Well what can you say - well done!

    The Indians are very offended that we do not buy Bramos for ourselves. At the same time, the capacities of our factories are clearly not enough. So, they can buy these missiles (in the land version, which I don’t think is). I don’t think it will be more expensive, otherwise and cheaper. Even if the range is shorter than that of Onyx. But it will turn out much faster. And then the Bastions make an teaspoon per hour (year). Moreover, they need to be retrained for shooting (ground-to-ground). And the Indians will be happy.

    We have been friends with the Indians for a long time, have been supplying them with weapons for a long time, and, as far as I know, they always paid for it.

    Interestingly, and Senator McCain’s head is also made of high-strength concrete? Is it included in the list of protected targets for hitting missiles of this type?

    The Indians and I are friends against China, and we won’t be friends, the Americans will be. So the dialectic here is also a love triangle, and even a quartet of printers. We wouldn’t have sold the technology. Besides, we should remember that we tried to make friends with everyone in the most difficult period. Our friends twisted our hands, and our neighbors simply robbed. And we have nothing to share with India, except perhaps the love of America.
