BrahMos Test-fire Gives Indian Army Another Boost, Can Hit Targets In China and Pakistan In Seconds
In a matter of seconds, everything will be over. Even the adversaries will have trouble remembering what transpired. The Indian Army’s might has been bolstered further by the successful test-fire of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile.
In seconds, the rocket may hit targets in China and Pakistan. It has the virtue of being able to be utilised in any conditions. The missile travels at 2.8 Mach, which is nearly three times the speed of sound. As a result, the enemy will be unable to retaliate in time.
The missile’s range is expected to be around 350 kilometres, up from the original 290 kilometres. The target of the BrahMos supersonic missile will never be missed. This was also visible in the previous day’s testing.
A decommissioned Indian Navy ship was the missile’s intended target. “The missile’s lack of a warhead caused a hole in the abandoned ship since it travels at speeds of over 3000 km/h and is difficult to intercept by air defence systems,” BrahMos officials claimed. The missile was launched from an eastern seaboard Sukhoi fighter plane. Submarines, ships, and ground platforms can all be used to launch it.
BrahMos Aerospace, a joint venture between India and Russia, is developing the BrahMos missile. On March 5, the Navy successfully fired a long-range version of the BrahMos cruise missile from INS Chennai.
