An advanced version of Brahmos land-attack supersonic cruise missile system was successfully test fired on Friday at 12 noon in the Western Sector by the Indian Air Force.

The unique BrahMos weapon system on numerous occasions has established its supremacy in the World of supersonic cruise missile.

The flight, conducted in one of the firing range in western sector, has met its mission parameters in a copybook manner.

Meeting all flight parameters, the formidable weapon successfully hit and annihilated the designated target, officials confirmed.

“I congratulate the Indian Air force for successfully accomplishing such a complex mission. BrahMos has proved its mettle once again as the best supersonic cruise missile system in the world,” Sudhir Mishra, CEO and MD of BrahMos Aerospace, said.

Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) chief S. Christopher also congratulated the Indian Air Force, BrahMos team and the DRDO scientists involved in the successful mission.

The accuracy in mountain warfare mode was recently re-established in a campaign conducted by the Indian Army in the eastern sector last year and repeated last month.

This formidable missile system has empowered all three wings of the armed forces with impeccable anti-ship and land attack capability.

This model of JV has yielded results in shortest possible time and has been well recognised by the Indian as well as armed forces of many countries who are interested in acquiring this weapon complex.
