Indian Army has test-fired Brahmos Block- III missile from a mobile autonomous launcher (MAL) in Andaman & Nicobar Islands Tuesday.
The launch of the Brahmos Block-III missile demonstrated the weapon’s lethality of hitting the centre of a designated target with “bull’s eye” precision, a senior Army officer was quoted as saying by India Tv today.
The Brahmo Block-III, the supersonic cruise missile hit the land-based target with desired precision in a “top attack configuration”, meeting all flight parameters in a copybook manner.
The launch involved high level and complex manoeuvering by the missile. The test-fire conducted on Tuesday was the fourth successive launch of the Block -III version of BRAHMOS LACM.
The first test-fire of the advanced supersonic cruise missile Brahmos was conducted on April 22 by Indian Navy.
The Brahmos missile is developed by a joint-venture between Russia’s Mashinostroyenia and India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
The cruise missile is based on the Russian P-800 Oniks cruise missile and other similar sea-skimming Russian cruise missile technology.
After India became a member of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) in 2016, India and Russia jointly planned to develop a new generation of Brahmos missiles with 600 km-plus range and an ability to hit protected targets with pinpoint accuracy.
Russias Severnoye Design Bureau is ready to integrate the BrahMos strike missile system into the armament set of Project 11356M frigates for the Indian Navy. The step for integration follows once they are ordered by India,
