BrahMos missile is a universal long range supersonic cruise missile system that can be launched by land, sea and air. This missile has been built by the Indian Army, DRDO and Russia. Its system is designed according to two variants. It is designed according to anti-ship and land-attack rolls. BrahMos missile is commissioned in the Indian Army and Navy. The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile system is the fastest operational system in the entire world in its category. Recently DRDO has extended the range of the missile from 298 km to 450 km.
In the last two months, DRDO has successfully test fired earlier and newer missiles. It also includes the Shaurya missile system that can hit the target up to 800 kilometers. It also includes hypersonic missile technology. Last month, the Indian Navy successfully test-fired the BrahMos missile from its warship INS Chennai. It is capable of attacking up to 400 kilometers.
India is now exploring markets to export supersonic cruise missiles. These missiles are built under Project PJ 10 of DRDO. These missiles were inducted into the three forces after a joint effort between India and Russia after the 90s.
