In a major accomplishment, the air version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile on Wednesday was successfully test-fired from Sukhoi 30 MK-I off Odisha coast.

Official sources said, the missile which was launched from the aircraft followed the pre-planned trajectory and met all the mission objectives. The air version of BrahMos was last flight tested in July 2021.

As per a PIB release, the launch is a major milestone in the development of BrahMos missile as it now clears the system for the serial production of air-version BrahMos missiles within the country.

“Major airframe assemblies which form the integral part of the Ramjet Engine are indigenously developed by Indian Industry. These include non-metallic air frame sections comprising Ramjet fuel tank and pneumatic fuel supply system. During the test, the structural integrity and functional performance have been proven,” the release read.

Raksha Mantri Rajnath Singh congratulated the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), BrahMos, Indian Air Force and the industry on the successful test firing.

BrahMos is a Joint Venture between India (DRDO) and Russia (NPOM) for the development, production and marketing of the supersonic cruise missile. BrahMos is the potent offensive missile weapon system already inducted into the Armed Forces, the release added.
