BRAHMOS Joint Venture: A Prominent Role Model Between India & Russia


Defence cooperation is an important keystone of the India-Russia strategic partnership. The longstanding time-tested relationship is guided by the programme for Military Technical Cooperation signed between the two nations to further develop and strengthen the defence requirements of the two countries.

The synergistic defence and military-technical relationship has progressed from a purely buyer-seller relationship to joint research, design development and production of state-of-the-art military platforms.

The BRAHMOS missile, a unique example of such a successful joint venture (JV), between India’s Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russia’s JSC MIC NPO Mashinostroyeniya (NPOM), has carved a distinct place for itself in the Indian Armed Forces.

India and Russia have made impressive strides in jointly developing the high-technology BRAHMOS. The weapon stands out as the only Universal supersonic cruise missile system in the whole BRAHMOS with a fine combination of speed, precision and power, has three times more velocity, 2.5 to 3 times more flight range, three to four times more seeker range and nine times more kinetic energy than any existing subsonic cruise missiles.

The multi-platform, multi-target cruise missile, carrying a conventional warhead weighing 200 to 300 kg, is capable of flying up to 290-km at a top speed of around Mach 3. Read More
