BrahMos, India’s supersonic cruise missile was successfully test-fired on July 16 from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Balasore, Odisha.

The precision strike missile followed the designated trajectory and the key components functioned perfectly. BRAHMOS has proved again all-weather capability flying in sea-state 7 with waves as high as 9 meters. DRDO’s range capability to operate in the most severe weather condition has also been validated at ITR Balasore.

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 impeccable land-attack, anti-ship capabilities with multi-role and multi-platform abilities.
