The BrahMos-Su-30MKI simulator provides pilot-in-loop simulation. It also allows the pilot to strategize BrahMos deployment with a complete mission planning and 3D real time flying experience.
The simulator was on display and demonstration at the recently concluded DefExpo 2018 at Chennai, India.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) concluded the second phase of its mega war-drill, Gagan Shakti-2018 with successful target strikes by the Sukhoi Su-30 MKI fighter jet fitted with BrahMos missile in the Malacca Strait on Monday.
Malacca strait is the entry point Chinese military is likely to enter the Indian Ocean region.
The cruise missile, launched from a Su-30MKI fighter jet will be tested against a land target in the coming 2-3 months. The missile was earlier tested against a sea target in November 2017. Once the land target test is completed, it will signal an end of the testing phase of the air-launched version.
The air-launched Brahmos cruise missile is intended to take out critical infrastructure, ships and military targets on land. The missile, traveling at speeds of over Mach 5, will be difficult to intercept by current anti-missile systems in the world. The launcher, trigger mechanism and control electronics have been made by Indian firms assisting Brahmos Aerospace. India's HAL has played a part in the integration of the system.
