The defence ministry reported that due to the size and hull specifications of the BrahMos, few if any of its new ships will be able to accommodate it. The missile was launched from a land-based facility in Odisha. This is the second test-firing of the extended range version of the missile which has an indigenously developed airframe and booster. The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired from a Su-30 MKI fighter aircraft on May 22, 2019. ThePrint has learnt that India is working on a 1,500-km range version of the system that can be launched from land, water or air. The missile was in a top-attack configuration, hitting a target in Bay of Bengal with pin point accuracy.Early copy: https://t.co/FSPuCDtwky@BrahMosMissile@akananth@DRDO_India @Onmanorama pic.twitter.com/5Yv1w2KvBd. Tested with India-developed propulsion system, airframe and power supply. , The new navigation system uses an Indian chip called G3OM (GPS, GLONASS, GAGAN on a Module). BrahMos can be fired on both modes depending upon the user-designated profile. Both land attack and Air launched versions were tested in two firings. The missile was fired from INS Chennai, a stealth destroyer, and it hit the target with pin-point accuracy … It can engage ground targets from an altitude as low as 10 metres for surgical strikes without any collateral damage. , The 5 September 2010 test of BrahMos created a world record for being the first cruise missile to be tested at supersonic speeds in a steep-dive mode. , The missile will arm the Sukhoi Su-30MKI, Mikoyan MiG-29K, HAL Tejas and future inductions such as the Dassault Rafale, Sukhoi Su-57, HAL FGFA, HAL MWF and possibly the Mikoyan MiG-35. Last month, a BrahMos missile from was successfully tested from Indian Navy’s stealth destroyer, INS Chennai.  It is based on the Russian P-800 Oniks cruise missile and other similar sea-skimming Russian cruise missile technology. BrahMos test with indigenous components has gone up now: DRDO Chairman Dr G Satheesh Reddy. BrahMos Aerospace Corporation's director Dr Sivathanu Pillai said, "The missile performance was absolutely normal until the last phase, but the missile missed the target, though it maintained the direction." This is the second successful test …  The vertical launch of BrahMos was conducted on 18 December 2008 from INS Ranvir. Prior to that on September 30 this year, a BrahMos missile carrying an indigenous booster and airframe section was successfully flight tested from ITR, Balasore in Odisha. The cost of adapting the BrahMos for air launch was "phenomenal," but efforts to downsize the missile were abandoned after an attempt to reduce the size of the ramjet.  The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service. In February 2010, a senior executive said that BrahMos was in negotiations with Chile, Brazil, South Africa and Indonesia regarding the purchase of the missile. India successfully test-fires naval version of BrahMos missile from INS Chennai. All Rights Reserved.  BrahMos-NG will have lesser RCS (radar cross section) compared to its predecessor, making it harder for air defense systems to locate and engage the target. New Delhi: India successfully test fired the surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile BrahMos in Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Tuesday. In 2020 alone so far, BrahMos saw five launches including one by Indian Navy, two for IAF, one for Indian Army and one development trial. Air-breathing ramjet propulsion is much more fuel-efficient than rocket propulsion, giving the BrahMos a longer range than a pure rocket-powered missile would achieve.  Informal negotiations are ongoing between India and Vietnam for the sale of BrahMos missiles. This was the second time that the extended range version of BrahMos supersonic missile was test-fired. According to sources, the missile was fired from INS Ranvijay, a Rajput-class destroyer, in the Bay of Bengal region. Defence sources said the test, the second of the extended range BrahMos missile, took place from a land-based mobile launcher at 10.30 am. This was necessitated by the increased order book of the missile system, with orders having been placed by both the Indian Army and Navy.  The procurement process of BrahMos was already in the advanced stage by March 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic halted the process and caused the Philippines reprioritizing its budget. Its 2.8 mach speed means that it cannot be intercepted by some existing missile defence systems and its precision makes it lethal to water targets. Defence Minister chairs first DAC meeting, clears BRAHMOS mobile coastal battery for Navy , 40 IAF SU-30MKI are to undergo modifications to be equipped to carry the missile. BrahMos Missile: In the last two-and-half months, India has test-fired a number of missiles including an anti-radiation missile named Rudram-1 which is … , India wanted the BrahMos to be based on a mid range cruise missile like the P-700 Granit. This was the first vertical launch of a supersonic missile from a submerged platform. The missile demonstrated the weapon’s unmatched lethal ability and formidable precision strike capability.  On 5 September 2010 BrahMos created a record for the first supersonic steep dive. With this launch, the Indian army's requirement for land attacks with Block-II advanced seeker software with target discriminating capabilities was met.  , BrahMos-NG (Next Generation) is a mini version based on the existing BrahMos, will have same 290 km range and mach 3.5 speed but it will weigh around 1.5 tons, 5 metres in length and 50 cm in diameter, making BrahMos-NG 50 percent lighter and three metres shorter than its predecessor. Integrated Test Range and Kalaikunda airbase. During the DefExpo2020 in February this year, Dr Sudhir Kumar Mishra, CEO & MD of BrahMos Aerospace, had told Onmanorama the missile variants will be tested with enhanced range this year. , Although BrahMos was primarily an anti-ship missile, the BrahMos Block III can also engage land-based targets. According to official sources, "The new seeker is unique and would help us to hit our targets, which are insignificant in terms of size, in a cluster of large buildings. , The high speed of the BrahMos likely gives it better target-penetration characteristics than lighter subsonic cruise-missiles, such as Tomahawk. BrahMos anti-cruise missile tyest fired Indian Navy on December 1, 2020, successfully test-fired the naval-version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in …  On 22 October 2008, A. Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Controller, R&D, DRDO and CEO and managing director of BrahMos Aerospace, announced that trials and tests were to be carried out by 2011, and the IAF would get its own version of BrahMos by 2012. , Missile is likely to be ready in late 2022. Bengaluru: A land attack version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired from Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Tuesday. As reported by Onmanorama earlier, scientists at BrahMos Aerospace and Defence Research and Development Organisation have successfully extended the range of the missile from 290 km to over 400 km. The IAF has operationalised the No 222 Sqn based out of Thanjavur as the first Sukhoi Sqn armed with BrahMos early this year.  The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) said that there were "small hitches" in the last stage of the test firing due to delay in input of satellite navigation input to the Inertial Navigation System, the missile travelled for 112 seconds instead of the slated 84 seconds and fell 7 km away from the target. According to the agency's sources, India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) was able to boost the missile's range from around 300 kilometres (186 miles) to over 400 kilometres (250 miles). It is expected to be ready for testing by 2020. He also said that a new takeoff engine for the launching of the missile in air and at extremely high altitudes had been developed, and the initial test firing of the missile would be undertaken from the Su-30 MKI but did not specify the dates. , The submarine-launched variant of Brahmos was test fired successfully for the first time from a submerged pontoon near Visakhapatnam at the coast of Bay of Bengal on 20 March 2013. More launches of the missile on different modes are lined up this week to test the accuracy and extended range of the weapon. , The air-launched version for the Indian Air Force was ready for testing in 2008.  The air-launched version has a smaller booster and additional tail fins for added stability during launch.  Approximately ₹1,500 crore (equivalent to ₹34 billion or US$471.7 million in 2019) will be invested in the facility to make BrahMos components and integrate the missile systems. Two Su-30MKI of the IAF would be modified by the HAL at its Nashik facility where they will also be integrated with the missile's aerial launcher. For perspective, conventional missiles like the US' Tomahawk travel at around 900 kmph – a speed at which supersonic aircraft can overtake them. Submarine-launched, anti-ship variant – Tested successfully for the first time from a submerged pontoon on 20 March 2013.  A Su-30MKI is able to only carry one BrahMos missile. India Successfully Test-Fires BrahMos Supersonic Nuclear-Capable Cruise Missile From Sukhoi Su-30  An air-launched variant of BrahMos appeared in 2012 and entered service in 2019. The missile was launched approximately around 10:03 am from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL). , BrahMos claims it has the capability of attacking surface targets by flying as low as five metres in altitude and the maximum altitude it can fly is 14,000 metres. With this successful mission, the indigenous content in the formidable weapon has reached a high value, thus bolstering India’s defence indigenisation and the flagship ‘Make in India’ programme.  On 8 August 2009, Alexander Leonov, Director of the Russian Machine Building Research and Production Centre, said "we are ready for test launches." By April 2013, Brahmos has been inducted in eight warships of the Indian Navy. On September 30, the Army successfully test-fired an extended range variant of the BrahMos that, reportedly, struck a target over 400km away. The BrahMos has currently been configured for aerial deployment with the Su-30MKI as its carrier.  The army has raised one regiment (numbered 861) of the Mark I and two missile regiments of the BrahMos Mark II, numbered 881 and 1889. BrahMos successfully hit the intended target in two and a half minutes of launch. BrahMos Aerospace, an India-Russian joint venture, produces the supersonic cruise missile … Last month, a BrahMos missile from was successfully tested from Indian Navy’s stealth destroyer, INS Chennai.  He stated that a hypersonic version of BrahMos would be needed that could deliver its payload and return to base.  The BrahMos I Block-I for the army was successfully tested with new capabilities in the deserts of Rajasthan, at a test range near Pokharan in December 2004 and March 2007. “Indian Army successfully launched its BrahMos supersonic cruise missile today in a top-attack configuration, hitting a target in the Bay of Bengal with pin point accuracy,” Southern Command of Indian Army said. , The purchase of over 200 air-launched BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles for the IAF was cleared by Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on 19 October 2012, at the cost of ₹6,000 crore (equivalent to ₹91 billion or US$1 billion in 2019). The missile had hit a Battle Practice Target positioned in the Arabian Sea during the launch on October 18. , Defence Research and Development Organisation, "BrahMos missile: Pune lab develops indigenous booster for BrahMos missile | Pune News -

The land attack version of BrahMos has the capability of cruising at 2.8 Mach speed and is in service since 2007.  On 22 November 2017, the missile was successfully test fired for the first time from a Sukhoi-30MKI against a sea-based target in the Bay of Bengal. BrahMos-NG will have Land, Air, ship-borne and Submarine tube-launched variants. Air-launched, anti-ship variant (In induction), Air-launched, land-attack variant (In induction). The Asian-Pacific nation would be a friendly nation that neither Russia nor India has any conflicts with. The designated target was located at 200 kilometers in Bay of Bengal. The BrahMos missile has an identical configuration for land, sea, and sub-sea platforms. In the last two-and-half months, India has test fired a number of missiles including an anti-radiation missile named Rudram-1 which is planned to be inducted into service by 2022. The air version of the missile was also test-fired from a Sukhoi fighter last month, in an extended mission involving multiple Indian Air Force assets.  In late January 2016, Russia confirmed that future Indian-made submarines would be armed with smaller version of the missile that could fit inside a torpedo tube. On 14 June 2004, another test was conducted at ITR and BrahMos was fired from a mobile launcher. , Block III has advanced guidance and upgraded software, incorporating high manoeuvres at multiple points and steep dive from high altitude. Each mobile autonomous launchers will consist of two to three missile tubes.  The Brahmos headquarters complex is located at New Delhi and consists of a design centre and aerospace knowledge centre. This launch had paved the way for the serial production of the indigenous booster and other indigenous components of the BrahMos weapon system.  The Indian Army confirmed that the test was successful and the army is satisfied with the missile. India has test-fired a new version of the surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile BrahMos and anti-radiation missile Rudram-1. , The missile was also planned to arm the Indian Navy's Ilyushin Il-38 and Tupolev Tu-142 maritime patrol and anti-submarine aircraft with 6 missiles per aircraft, but this could not be made possible due to insufficient ground clearance of the IL-38, high cost of modifying the Tu-142 and the questionable benefits of modifying an ageing fleet. The operational BrahMos regiments are:, India has deployed Brahmos along with long range cruise missile Nirbhay and Akash surface to air missile to deter Chinese aggression along the Line of Actual Control in eastern Ladakh.  According to BrahMos Corporation, another test of the new missile was to be conducted within one month, but it was eventually conducted on 4 March 2009 and was deemed successful. , In 2016, India became a member of the MTCR. So far, the Indian Army has inducted three regiments of BrahMos. Industry sources say that interested countries include Vietnam, Indonesia, and Venezuela. India test-fires air launched version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. New Delhi: India Tuesday began a series of tests of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, even as work goes on to extend its range. In top attack mode, the missile climbs sharply after the launch and cruises at very high altitude (evident in today’s launch video). In the last two months, India has test fired a number of missiles including a new version of the surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile BrahMos and an anti-radiation missile named Rudram-1. This was the fourth successful test of BrahMos missile in a span of just over a week.
