Tests "BrahMos" on the Su-30 aircraft will begin in the coming months

Tests of the BrahMos missile on Su-30 fighters should begin in a couple of months, reports RIA News a message from the representative of BrahMos Aerospace, Pravina Pathak, at the DSA-2016 arms exhibition in Malaysia.

Tests "BrahMos" on the Su-30 aircraft will begin in the coming months

"By aviation the missile has already completed ground tests, now we are going to install it on the Su-30, and in one to two months will be throwing tests, "said Pathak.

“First we plan to conduct tests with a weight and size mockup, and then with technological and standard rockets,” he added.

“We hope that all tests in November-December will be completed,” said a company spokesman.

Help edition: “The BrahMos is a two-stage cruise missile with a solid, first-stage launch, which accelerates it to supersonic speed, after which it is separated. The rocket has a range of up to 290 kilometers and retains supersonic speed throughout the entire flight. The rocket has the same configuration for ground, surface and underwater launchers (carriers). The rocket version for launching from an air carrier has less weight and additional tailing, providing it with greater aerodynamic stability at the moment of its separation from the aircraft carrier. ”

    Well, some kind of mockery! Pin..dos haven’t moved away from the caliber, but BrahMos is here !! laughing

      Plans told, well.
      Better after the combat launches report the results.

      As I understand it, I'm the only one who doubts the effectiveness of Onyx / Yahont / Bramos, right?

      With such a flight altitude on the marching section (14 km), this missile will be detected early, literally from the beginning of its flight, by the enemy. Or do you think that today the West is not able to bring down a rocket at such a height, even if it is flying at a speed of Mach 2,5-2,9? The Italians five years ago, with the Astre 30 rocket, shot down a target rocket flying at Mach 2,5 at a height of only five meters above the water! And here is 14000 meters!

      As for me, the anti-ship Caliber (which is 3m54) will be more effective. Let it be subsonic on the march, but it flies low - it will be detected already on the approaches to the target, rushing towards it already at Mach 2,9! This is an unexpected! bully

        Learn the materiel!
        14 km is a marching section to achieve maximum range. You can immediately dive down, but the range will be less and harder to find a ship homing missile radar (from above it can be seen better and further). On the marching section it can’t be reached by air defense because of the long range (unless SM-3 can try) For several tens of kilometers the rocket drops and dives under the radio horizon. After that, ship radars lose it. The only thing that can launch a missile at this stage is the AWACS hanging in the air.
        When a 2-3M missile appears on the radar locators of the attacked ship, flying over the crests of the waves, then hope remains only on the automatic systems of the short-range air defense and electronic warfare systems.

          Don’t teach your father .... well, don’t teach in short winked
          The length of the marching section of this missile is at least 250 km (when firing at the maximum range, of course), and the final (by simple calculations) is 30-40 km.

          On the marching section, it can’t be reached by air defense systems because of the long range (unless SM-3 can try)

          First: there are SM-2 (about 170 km range), SM-6 (about 240 km) and Aster 30 (about 120 km). And this I only called from memory, it was possible to search the network.
          Secondly: teach the mathematical part itself! SM-3 vs Onyx / Yahont / Brahmos is powerless. Not only does our rocket fly along a complex trajectory (God forbid an American), the SM-3 also has a minimum intercept altitude in the region of 25-40 km (according to various sources).

            Sorry virus, clicked on +, and flew out -, I agree with you about the rocket, in this case, you can’t get through to connecting ships with modern air defense, another thing is large single targets and the like repeat

              First, think about who is the geopolitical adversary of India. Against whom is this weapon aimed? On, and then count the odds ...

              Excuse me, gentlemen, Experts, and what kind of outfit do you allocate to break through the air defense circuit of the ships? Enlighten the amateur.

    A great example of cooperation in the defense industry, which will provide invaluable experience to young designers and diplomats.

      I do not know. For some reason, I remembered the cartoon "How a man sold a cow". The main thing is, how is it, not to decide that you need such a cow yourself laughing

        An old story, with the money of the Hindus we bring promising types of weapons. So it was already with the Su-30MKI, which became our SU-30SM, the Shtil-1 air defense missile system was completed on the Talvars, Onyx became Brahmos, we will be completing the PAK FA due to FGFA, hypersonic Zircon, most likely (after cutting off a number of characteristics) will become Brahmos II

    With a mass-scale model of the test, IMHO should have been carried out a long time ago ..

    The missile has a range of up to 290 kilometers and maintains supersonic speed throughout the flight.
    Well, yes, well, yes ... But our own, native, Indian. "Shmalnite", guys, we are also very interested.

    I hope that on this joint base, our people will bungle something of their superfood. Otherwise, the meaning of the Indians to give technology.
    1. Wiruz
      Wiruz April 20 2016 17: 11
      And why not give it? Especially when you consider that Brahmos is only Yakhont, painted with Indian paint, on top of the Soviet one; and Yahont himself is an export version of Onyx. Well, yes, like Bramos on the march, Yakhont flies faster - Mach 2,9 versus 2,5. I do not consider this a serious difference.

      Just remember what time it was, the military-industrial complex was on its way, there was an opportunity for the Indians to push the goods - pushed, such as a joint development. And for ourselves, today, we are already planing Zircon. And by the way, that previously vaunted Brahmos-2 is in no way hypersonic, "only" Mach 4-4,5, unlike our Zircon.

        Bramos-2 is a castrated Zircon. There is no other given and nowhere to come from!
        And Bramos Indians seriously tightened in terms of software.

    I don’t understand ... such a debate has unfolded over the yet untested BrahMos ... let the SU-30 with a missile be tested, shoot at targets, etc., for any missile a good and superfluous slap on the mattresses ...
