Chile, Peru Show Interest In BrahMos Cruise Missile


South American countries Chile and Peru have shown interest in acquiring the BrahMos cruise missile that India has jointly developed with Russia at a budget of $300 million, officials said.

According to diplomatic sources, “The Chilean armed forces are interested in buying the missile. There have been active discussions between the two sides.

There have been several queries from the government of Peru in the last few months and more so when trials of the missile aboard the SU-30 were successful, sources told FE.

“To get a hold of the Latin American market, BrahMos is participating in the FIDAE show taking place in Santiago, Chile, from April 3-8. Lot of interest has been generated in the region after the successful launch of BrahMos from SU-30 aircraft against a sea target, as many countries in the region have opted for the Sukhoi aircraft.” Read More…
