India successfully test-fires BrahMos with Indian made seeker

Supersonic cruise missile BrahMos, which has become the preferred conventional precision-strike weapon for the armed forces, successfully tested for the first time with Indian-made seeker at Pokhran at 8.42 am.

The supersonic cruise missile that provides a major strategic deterrence against China and Pakistan can be utilised in ‘multi-mission’ roles, including precision strikes on terror camps across the LoC, against highvalue naval targets, including aircraft carriers and nuclear bunkers.

In March, an extended-range version of the missile, with a flight range of more than 400 km, was successfully test-fired.
The BrahMos ALCM weighing 2.5 tonnes is the heaviest weapon to be deployed on the Su-30 fighter aircraft, modified by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd to carry weapons.
BrahMos Aerospace, a joint venture between India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation and NPOM of Russia, is responsible for designing, developing and producing the missile.
