IAF Successfully Tested The BrahMos Missile From The Su30-MKI and Recorded A ‘Direct Hit On The Target’

On Tuesday, the Indian Air Force (IAF) successfully launched a BrahMos missile from a Su30-MkI aircraft on the Eastern seaboard in collaboration with the Indian Navy. “On the Eastern Seaboard today, the Indian Air Force fired a live BrahMos missile from a Su30 MkI aircraft. The missile hit the target, a decommissioned Indian Navy ship, with a direct hit.

The mission was carried out in close cooperation with the Indian Navy, according to a tweet from the Indian Air Force.

The BrahMos missile gives the Indian Air Force with a long-awaited capability to hit any target at sea or on land with pinpoint accuracy at any time of day or night and in any weather condition.

India successfully tested the Helina anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) from an advanced light helicopter (ALH) at a high altitude on April 11, opening the way for the weapon’s integration with the chopper. Following a series of experiments at the Pokhran firing range in Rajasthan, this test was undertaken.

The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the Indian Air Force, and the army collaborated on the test. The Nag missile, which is launched from a helicopter, can hit targets up to seven kilometres away.

According to the defence ministry, the fire-and-forget missile successfully engaged a simulated tank target at high-altitude ranges, guided by an infrared image seeker system.

In the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India tested a surface-to-surface BrahMos supersonic cruise missile on March 23. According to defence sources, the long-range missile hit its target with precise accuracy.
