Army successfully test-fires BrahMos missile
The Army successfully test-fired the BrahMos supersonic land attack cruise missile in Pokhran.
“The Indian Army fired BrahMos land attack cruise missile successfully against a designated target at Pokhran test range in Rajasthan, demonstrating the weapon’s supreme operational capability,” Defence officials said.
The missile was test-fired from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL) deployed in full configuration.
The Army has already inducted three regiments of BrahMos in its arsenal. All are equipped with Block-III version of missile, which was tested earlier this year. The fire-and-forget missile has the capability to take on surface-based targets by flying at a combined high-low trajectory, thus evading enemy air defence systems.
