BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile With Indigenous Technologies Test-Fired Off Odisha coast
Balasore: India on Wednesday successfully test-fired supersonic cruise missile BrahMos with new indigenous technologies, including the control system, off Odisha coast.
The missile was test-fired from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) launch pad-III at Chandipur around 10.45 am. The ‘copy book flight’ followed a new optimal trajectory set for the mission for better performance, DRDO sources said.
On December 21, the air version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired from supersonic fighter aircraft Sukhoi 30 MK-I at 10:30 am from the integrated test range of Chandipur.
BrahMos is a joint venture between India (DRDO) and Russia (NPOM) for the development, production and marketing of the supersonic cruise missile. It has been inducted into the Armed Forces.
