India on Thursday successfully test-fired an updated version of the supersonic BrahMos cruise missile. The missile was fired from the Balasore coast of Odisha. Defense sources said that new technology has been used in this BrahMos missile. This missile was fully equipped with new technology, which was successfully tested. According to DRDO, the supersonic BrahMos missile with new additional technologies including control system was test-fired from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) Launch Pad-3 at Chandipur at around 10.45 am.

Earlier on January 11, India had test-fired a new variant of the modernized supersonic BrahMos cruise missile. The Indian Navy had successfully test-fired it in a secretly guided missile destroyer. The Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) said that the missile hit the target accurately. This missile has the ability to strike a range of 350 to 400 km. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said the readiness and tenacity of the Indian Navy was evident with the successful launch of the missile. He tweeted and congratulated the Indian Navy and DRDO for this achievement.

Why is it named Brahmos

Explain that the Indo-Russian joint venture ‘Brahmos Aerospace’ produces supersonic cruise missiles. The name of Brahmos is derived from two of our country’s Brahmaputra river and Russia’s Moskva river. It is considered the world’s fastest anti-ship cruise missile. It can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or ground-based platforms. BrahMos missiles can launch at Mach 2.8 or nearly three times the speed of sound. India has deployed a large number of original BrahMos missiles etc. at various places of strategic importance.

The target penetrates everywhere from the depth of the sea to the sky

The fastest supersonic cruise missile ‘BrahMos’ is ringing all over the world. It targets the enemy from land, air, water or even from the depths of the sea. Two years ago, when India deployed BrahMos missiles on the border, Pakistan’s spit was lost. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan even wrote a letter to the United Nations. From this, guess why the enemy countries are afraid of ‘Brahmos’ missile.

When did BrahMos take off for the first test flight?

The missile made its first test flight on 12 June 2001. It was prepared jointly by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and the Russian agency. DRDO also congratulated BrahMos missile on its 20th anniversary.
