The supersonic cruise missile was test fired successfully recently as part of a service life extension programme
Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and BrahMos scientists recently conducted a successful test firing of the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile at the Integrated Test Range in Balasore, Odisha. These tests were a part of a service life extension programme. Conducted from a Static Inclined Launcher, the life extension test firing of BRAHMOS proved its efficacy and longevity. This precision strike cruise missile followed its designated trajectory and key components accurately.
A joint venture between DRDO of India and NPOM of Russia, the BRAHMOS missile’s versatility has made it the ultimate weapon of choice in modern warfare. Its speed, precision, and raw firepower are unmatched.
Congratulating the DRDO and BRAHMOS teams, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that the successful test-firing would result in saving replacement costs of missiles in the Indian Armed Forces arsenal.
Secretary Department of Defence R&D and Chairman DRDO, Dr S Christophe also congratulated the team on the successful validation of life extension. DG & CEO & MD, BrahMos Aerospace Dr Sudhir Mishra praised the team and said that the launch would benefit the Armed Forces in maintaining inventory for a more economical and longer duration.
