BrahMos Land Attack Cruise Missile test fired successfully

Jointly developed by India and Russia, the latest Brah- Mos ‘Land Attack’ Supersonic Cruise Missile can hit targets at a 290 KM strike Range while travelling at Mach 2.8 speeds. The missile will be installed on Indian 7000 tonne ‘Kolkata Class Destroyers’. The missile was successfully testfired in the Bay of Bengal from a stealth frigate ‘Teg’ and put Indian Navy in the elite club of Superpower Navies having weapons to strike targets on land from the sea. The navies of countries including Russia, China, US and Britain have the power of similar strike capability but after this test-firing, Indian has also entered the league. Indian Navy has frontline ships like Teg, Kolkata, and Ranvir to fire Supersonic missile like this on a target on land. With Brah- Mos adding the land attack variant, Indian Navy will be capable of neutralizing the selected target deep inside enemy territories.
