India successfully fires ‘super’ BrahMos
NEW DELHI: India on Wed- nesday successfully tested the extended range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, which has emerged as a primary precision-strike conventional weapon for the armed forces, from the integrated test range at Balasore in Odisha.
Defence sources said the new BrahMos missile can strike targets over 400-km away with pin-point accuracy. This was the third test of the extended range land-attack BrahMos cruise missile, which has an indigenous airframe, booster and many other subsystems.
The test comes at a time when the original 290-km range BrahMos, jointly developed with Russia, has already been deployed in Ladakh as well as Arunachal Pradesh during the ongoing military confrontation with China.

well done keep going great, congrats
we should develop setlite based fire finder and attack system, this should incorporate to our artilary guns and shoulder fired missiles etc.
Great going India! India needs to be militarily and economically strong to get its rightful place in the new world order!
Jai Hind. VANDE MATARAM
When your neighbours are like Pakistan and China, you will have to strengthen the defence.
Kudos to DRDO and Russia, Indian army, and Indian go nment led by Modi!
Incidentally Bhramos was comissioned in 2006 under Cong and all variants etc have been since 2006 . To give Modi credit for everything is good . Please let him also take the credit for shattered economy by failed demonetisation
we need in large numbers to counter chinese. Please deploy thousands of batteries of Brohmos
Each Brahmos missile costs about ₹30 crore. Think of budget too..
Can you tell me what is our current GDP. How many elderly have not been paid pensions yet. What is the state of Corona situation. How many indians follow social distancing and how many more dalits need to get gangraped and killed in up? Where are the enemies of these people inside the borders or outside the borders.
It really makes your day, when you see good news like these are published. Congratulation to all those who contributed in achieving a successful test of this precision striker. The congrats extends to those all those men and women who put their effort in the Successful Design, Manufacture and Test of this Brahmos missile.
We will see the effects of the invention if forces face the dragon!
Big appreciation for the scientific community engaged in defence inventions enabling India to face the world boldly! Kudos to the forces! Congrats to the people.
Instead of firing towards the Bay of Bengal, fire them from Leh towards the Chinese troops which will give a better knowledge on its effectiveness. If the Chinese reacts, it will mean that it has hit the target. 'The taste of the pudding is in the eating'.
You have to prepare every defence asset you have duly validated ( zeroed) for maximum effect before a potential conflict. This was not sabre rattling and we dont care what our adversaries have. We are preparing all that we have in TIME for any eventuality.
Super or Not will be known only after operational use.
iSALUTE ALL THOSE INVOLVED IN THIS SUCCESS
