India successfully test-fires advanced version of Brahmos cruise missile

STORY: Indian Army successfully test-fired an advanced version of Brahmos land-attack cruise missile in the southern Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Wednesday (May 03), revalidating the weapon’s precision strike capability.

The land-to-land configuration of Brahmos block-III version was launched from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL) for its full-range and reportedly hit the center of a designated target with “bull’s eye” precision.

The supersonic cruise missile successfully met all flight parameters in a copybook manner while conducting high-level and complex maneuvers, said local media reports.

The Brahmos, named after India’s Brahmaputra river and Russia’s Moscow river, was developed by a joint venture between India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyen.
