The test launch of the BrahMos missile, developed at a joint Russian-Indian venture, is scheduled for September this year, reports RIA News with reference to BrahMos Aerospace director Sudhir Mishra.


The first launch of the "BrahMos" from the board of the Su-30MKI will be held in September


“This year is very important for BrahMos Aerospace - within six months we will launch our rocket from the board of the Su-30MKI. It will be a whole series of start-ups, ”said the director.

He also said that in the next few months "the signing of a contract for the development of the BrahMos-mini rocket is expected - negotiations are underway with many contractors."

Help Agency: “Brahmos” is a two-stage cruise missile with a solid-fuel starting first stage, which accelerates it to supersonic speed, after which it is separated. The rocket has a range of up to 290 kilometers and retains a supersonic speed throughout the entire flight. The altitude can be up to 15 kilometers, and the lowest altitude can be up to 10 meters. The rocket carries an ordinary warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kilograms. It has the same configuration for ground, surface and underwater launchers. "

The BrahMos-mini (a smaller version of the rocket) will be able to use various types of combat aircraft, including the deck MiG-29K / KUB supplied to the Indians.

      Since 2002, an aviation version has been developed. Since 2008, they promise to launch. Every year. Now 2016. Not interesting anymore

      Do we have BrahMos in service?

        The analogue is Yakhont. Although not so: Yakhont (Onyx) was taken as the basis of BrahMos.

        There is information that in Russia, onyx base is also being used to build a rocket of a similar class, but with the best characteristics. At the same time, work is already underway on the BraMos-2 hyper-high-speed rocket. And if so, then this work is underway.

    Something stunted - up to 290km, 300kg. What is the killer of aircraft carriers? And they won’t drown with one, and they won’t let them go so close, unless they stick it into the deck if the air defense is gaping.

      Controversial issue ...
      And if they drown?
      The plane will deliver the rocket to a distance of 300-500 km from the shore / base, and then it will get by itself, another +300 km ...
      A 300 kg. at supersonic flies a little will not even seem to an aircraft carrier, and not just an escort ship.
      In my opinion, not bad.

      So it is stated. But, I would not be surprised if Bramosy-M (for example) fly 1800 km. Suddenly. Like calibers with declared 400 km. repeat

        by 1800 on supersonic, well, it’s just nothing, but on the sound, even on ships it’s pointless, they will sail away from it, except for ground targets.

      Of course, neither Brahmos nor Yakhont is a killer of aircraft carriers. the radius of the air defense of the AUG is much farther and the plane will not fly up to 300 km - unless in specific conditions - when the AUG is "right off the coast somewhere in the Persian Gulf"

      But as an anti-ship complex - an irresistible weapon, yes!

      290 km range is a limitation on the import of rocket technology -

      So Russia itself can, in principle, modify its Onyxa Yakhonts and maybe it already does that.

      With a range of 500 km in some theaters - if the AOGs have come close - that is, under certain conditions - it’s possible aviation will be able to attack Onyxes

      But in reality - we all understand - that it is more realistic to strike at AUG from under water - from Caliber submarines or the same onyxes - from 200 and even 100 km

      And from the air they used to be Tu 22 with x-22 - now it’s kind of outdated - they promise x-32 or zircons - something hypersonic

      It depends on where they get - look how "Forrestal" crumpled one NURS (by the way, it did not even explode) -

    Let's cool the euphoria a little. The Brahmos rocket should receive target designation from the Su-30MKI onboard radar, and only then lock the target with its head. The detection range of a surface target of the "aircraft carrier" type of the Su-30MKI radar or a large ground target is known. Therefore, the launch range will always be limited by the detection and capture range of the locator, and vice versa, with a large detection and capture range of the locator, not every missile has the ability, in terms of its energy, instrumental and ballistic characteristics, to be effectively used at the maximum ranges of the locator.

    Brahmos is a good missile, but not a super weapon.
    Missile defense "Barak-8" successfully intercepted Bramos
    (counter interception) on trials in India.
    Maybe the mini-Bramos will be faster, I don’t know ...
