BHUBANESWAR: Land attack variant of supersonic cruise missile BrahMos was successfully test fired by Indian army on Tuesday.
The Block-III version of the weapon system was tested in steep-dive mode as part of its capability enhancement endeavour. It was fourth successive launch of the Block-III version of the BrahMos land attack cruise missile which has once again stamped its impeccable precision strike capability.
The strike range of the missile was recently enhanced from 290 km to 450 km following the technology upgradation after India’s full membership to the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR), which removed caps on the range. Defence sources said, the missile was fired from a mobile autonomous launcher in full operational configuration.
All telemetry and tracking stations including naval ships near terminal point confirmed that the mission was successful.
