Demonstrating its operational preparedness, the Indian Air Force on Tuesday successfully test-fired BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a Sukhoi fighter aircraft on the eastern seaboard. The Air Force said the missile was tested in close coordination with the Navy. Officials said the missile hit the target with precision.

In a tweet, the Air Force said, “Today, off the Eastern Seaboard, the Air Force test-fired the BrahMos missile from a Sukhoi 30 MKI aircraft. The missile hit the decommissioned Indian Navy ship directly on target. In close coordination with the Indian Navy This test happened.”

In 2016, the government decided to add air-capable variants of BrahMos to over 40 Sukhoi fighter jets. The project was envisioned to enhance the capability of the IAF to strike any target at sea or on land from a large ‘stand-off range’.

The Indian Navy on March 5 successfully test-fired an upgraded version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a stealth destroyer in the Indian Ocean. The missile was test fired from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai. BrahMos Aerospace is an Indo-Russian joint venture that produces supersonic cruise missiles that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land platforms. The BrahMos missile flies at a speed of Mach 2.8 or nearly three times the speed of sound. The range of the advanced version of the missile has been increased to about 350 km from 290 km earlier.
