The world’s fastest supersonic cruise missile, BrahMos has turned deadlier with the new technological advancements made by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).
The missile which was earlier capable of striking upto 300 km range, will now be able to strike as far as 500 km after the latest tests, according to CEO of Brahmos Aerospace, Sudhir Kumar Mishra. This development came after India became a member of the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) last year.
“India has successfully test fired a vertical deep dive version of BrahMos, world’s fastest supersonic cruise missile, that can now change the dynamics of conventional warfare. The upgraded version of the missile with enhanced range of upto 500 km is also ready,” Mishra told in an interview to the Doordarshan news.
