BrahMos Aerospace operates with Indo-Russian cooperation. It produces supersonic cruise missiles that can be successfully launched from aircraft, ships, submarines or terrain.
BrahMos supersonic cruise missile is also the fastest operating system of its kind in the world. DRDO has recently increased the firepower of this missile system from the current 298 km to 450 km.
The anti-ship version of this supersonic cruise missile with a strike range of 300 km successfully destroyed its target ship in this test.
The target of this missile was deployed near the Car-Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal. The missile, developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization-DRDO, was launched by the Indian Navy’s INS Rannvijay.
