Successful test firing of BrahMos to validate service life extension

BrahMos, the supersonic cruise missile has been successfully test-fired recently, from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Balasore, Odisha. The test-firing conducted from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher was part of service life extension programme for Indian Army under extreme weather conditions.

The precision strike missile followed the designated trajectory and the key components functioned perfectly. DRDO's range capability to operate in the most severe weather condition was also validated at ITR Balasore. Senior Army officials and scientists from DRDO and BrahMos witnessed the trial.

BrahMos is a joint venture between DRDO of India and NPOM of Russia.  BrahMos missile has established itself as a major force multiplier in modern-day complex battlefields with its land-attack, anti-ship capabilities with multi-role and multi-platform abilities.
