India’s first Su-30MKIs rearmed with Russian-Indian supersonic cruise missile- BrahMos


The first two Sukhoi Su-30MKI fighters operated by the Indian Air Force have been rearmed with the Russian-Indian BRAHMOS-A supersonic cruise missiles, Praveen Pathak, the chief general manager of the two countries’ joint venture BrahMos Aerospace, told Sputnik on Friday.

“The first two fighters have already been re-equipped with the brand-new BRAHMOS missile system. Other aircraft will be rearmed over the next few years,” Pathak said at the International Maritime Defence Show 2019, which is being held in Russia’s St. Petersburg.

Pathak noted that new missile tests would be carried out in August, aimed at testing its ability to destroy sea-based targets. Read More
