Chennai:18/10/20:BRAHMOS, the supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired today from Indian Navy’s indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai, hitting a target in the Arabian Sea. The missile hit the target successfully with pinpoint accuracy after performing high-level and extremely complex manoeuvres.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Indian Navy for the successful launch. Secretary, Department of Defence Research and Development and DRDO Chairman Dr G Satheesh Reddy congratulated the scientists and all personnel of DRDO, BrahMos, Indian Navy and industry for the successful feat.
DRDO Chairman Dr Reddy said, BRAHMOS missiles will add to the capabilities of Indian Armed Forces in many ways.
BRAHMOS as a prime strike weapon will ensure the warship’s invincibility by engaging naval surface targets at long ranges, thus making the destroyer another lethal platform of Indian Navy. The highly versatile BRAHMOS has been jointly designed, developed and produced by India and Russia.
