India successfully test-fires new version of BrahMos missile

Brahmos Missile

India has successfully test-fired a new version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile off the coast of Odisha in Balasore on Thursday.

The news:  According to a news agency, the missile was loaded with new technological breakthroughs that had been successfully verified by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

  • The DRDO successfully test-fired a naval variant of the BrahMos from an Indian Navy stealth guided-missile ship just over a week ago, on January 11. The DRDO had said that the missile hit the designated target “precisely”.

What they’re saying: Rajnath Singh, the Union defence minister, thanked DRDO personnel on the successful launch, saying it “reconfirmed the toughness of the Indian Navy’s mission preparedness.”

  • BrahMos is a joint venture between the DRDO and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya that resulted in the formation of Brahmos Aerospace. The missile gets its name from two rivers: India’s Brahmaputra and Russia’s Moskva.
  • The supersonic cruise missile is produced by BrahMos Aerospace, a joint venture between India and Russia. It can be launched from submarines, ships, aeroplanes, or ground platforms.
  • The BrahMos missile travels at 2.8 Mach, or nearly three times the speed of sound.

India has already deployed a significant number of the original BrahMos missiles, as well as other important weapons, in a number of vital locations.
