In India, a demonstration flight of the Su-30 with the BrahMos missiles

On Saturday, the Indian Air Force conducted a demonstration flight of a Su-30MKI fighter with a suspended Russian-Indian missile "BrahMos", reports RIA News Post press service of a joint venture.

“BrahMos Aerospace today, 25 June 2016, successfully demonstrated the compatibility of the most advanced supersonic cruise missile“ BrahMos ”on the Su-30MKI Indian Air Force fighter,” the release said.

It is reported that "the flight took place at the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited site in Nasik", "it was closely watched by several countries in the world that have Su-30 fighter jets in service and want to buy weapons for Russian military aircraft."

“Today’s (25 June launch) brings the air-based BrahMos version development program directly to fire tests when the BrahMos air-to-ground missile and 2,5 tons of weight will be released from Su-30 in the coming months,” the press said to service.

“The Indian Air Force is inspired by the firepower and range that the lethal combination of the Su-30 and the BrahMos will provide them. The use of the BrahMos missiles will allow strikes from outside the reach of the enemy’s weapons, as well as attack objects protected by air defenses, ”the release said.

Enterprise Reference: “The 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 maintains supersonic speed throughout the entire flight. Flight altitude can be up to 15 kilometers, and as low as possible 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 (carriers). "

    Advertising aircraft and rockets - ext. money in the military-industrial complex of Russia. So we will build for ourselves and not really leaning on the budget.

      Advertising by advertising, and the SU-30 plus BraMos complex turned out to be really killer.

        Navar to whom? Us or Hindus? Or in half? By the way, no one canceled the combat protection of the AUG at a distance from the main forces. This is a word about starting from afar.

    “The Indian Air Force is excited about the firepower and range that the lethal combination of the Su-30 and BrahMos will provide.

    The Hindus received excellent offensive weapons ... but against whom will they be directed in a possible armed conflict?
    Only PAKISTAN and CHINA come to mind ... how will they respond to the appearance of such a formidable tandem in a neighbor?

      Hindus got a great offensive weapon

      For an aircraft with a maximum takeoff of 34,5 tons, it is truly a masterpiece. Bramos - a kind of "half" of the X-22 turned out

      so, for comparison. "Big brother" X-22 1968. Carriers - already "bombers" Tu-22.

      Flight Speed: M = 3,5-4,6
      Firing Range: 140-300 (460-600) km
      Flight height: 22,5-25 km
      Application height: 10 (11-12) km
      Guidance system: ARLGSN or PRLGSN or inertial PSI
      Warhead: warhead weight 630-900 (1000) kg
      thermonuclear 0,35-1,0 Mt
      high explosive cumulative
      Engine: LRE C5.44 (R201-300)

      Type of PU: BD-294 (Tu-22 in the cargo compartment), BD-45K (wing Tu-22M, Tu-95K-22), BD-45F (in the cargo compartment Tu-22M), BD-206 (Tu-95K-22 in the cargo bay)

      Let's just say: both there and there were startled. Since this is really a serious argument in armed confrontation, but if a couple of conditions are met, it’s necessary to establish their mass production and install nuclear warheads on parts of them.

      I want to believe that someday they, India, China and Pakistan will come together to drive the US fleet out of the Indian Ocean. This is their ocean, and the Americans have their own - the Gulf of Mexico is called.

    not a single advertisement of a weapon will give such an effect .. like the combat use of a weapon .. which showed the use of this handsome man in the sky of Syria.

    And in Syria, Allah gave rockets to Osa to Jaish Islam - this installation shot all 6 rockets back in the 2014 year (and all launches were recorded - and this is really a new video, not the shooting of those 6 rockets).

    And then, all of a sudden, that night a helicopter was fired upon (it seemed that a distant explosion had also passed) - that is, missiles were delivered.

    Hindus do two things at once, and rearm, and our weapons are advertised along the way.

    The tandem is really good. However, the range ... UP TO 290km., I think there can be no talk about YBCh. IMHO hi

      According to the Missile Technology Nonproliferation Regime, 300 km is the maximum range that can be sold. In fact, if the missile is "made" completely Indian, then technically the missile has a much greater range. I am not an international lawyer and do not have information on how this can be done (she has a ramjet for any made in Russia). Although, in the event of a real threat, the Indians will probably spit on all international treaties and "suddenly" the missile will fly much further.

    Probably all eyes were striped, because they had already entered the second group of ships into that region against China. But Bramos works very well against ships.

    290 km - BJC can.
    If the tactical 152mm shells are with YaBCh

    We, by the way, instead of Bramos have a Mosquito, which seems to be suspended under Su.
    Su-33, Su-27K, Su-34

    Unfortunately, these missiles are far from equal. Onyx (Brahmos's base) is lighter, shorter, longer-range and more powerful than Mosquito. Paradoxically, being the creators of the Onyx missile system and the Su-3X aircraft, we still cannot "marry" one with the other. The Hindus were able to, but ours either need it or be lazy ...
    Even the Su-34, which God himself ordered, it would seem, to carry Onyx, they do not carry.

    I really wanted to watch a video of this material.
    In fact, pilots are specially trained for such launches, and the problem is not the very launch of the rocket in flight, the problem begins when the launch is canceled with the landing of the aircraft with the rocket.
