BrahMos updated with a range of 500 km ready: CEO of BrahMos Aerospace

New Delhi, July 7 () The improved version of the homegrown BrahMos missile with an improved range of up to 500 km is ready, said BrahMos Aerospace CEO Sudhir Kumar Mishra.

Mishra, in an interview aired on Doordarshan News Sunday, said it is possible to increase the range of this missile because India is now part of the elite missile technology control regime (MTCR).

India has successfully tested a vertical deep dive version of BrahMos, the world's fastest supersonic cruise missile, which can now change the dynamics of conventional warfare ... The improved version of the missile with an improved range of up to 500 km He is also Ready, he said.

He said India is now the only country in the world that integrates long-range missiles into combat aircraft after the BrahMos missile was tested from a Sukhoi 30 aircraft of the Indian Air Force.

The Brahmos missile, which crosses nearly three times the speed of sound at Mach 2.8, is the heaviest weapon to be deployed on Su-30 fighters.

We can take any boat in the sea up to 300 to 400 km (far) and after a while, it can be longer; We can take land targets up to hundreds of kilometers and with the test we have done some time ago (since Sukhoi 30), it extends up to thousands of kilometers, he said, according to a statement from the state broadcaster.

Mishra said that for the Army, the Navy and the Air Force, Brahmos has become a weapon of choice and the steep 90-degree version has become a definitive aircraft carrier assassin.

He said that the technologies that BrahMos Aerospace has developed did not exist before in India or Russia.

BrahMos Aerospace is a joint venture owned by the governments of India and Russia and their missiles are produced in India. Former Army deputy chief Lieutenant General Subrata Saha, who also spoke about the program, said the immersion version of the missile is a game changer for mountain warfare (the kind seen during the Kargil war).
