Jaipur: Indian Air Force on Friday successfully test fired an advanced version of BrahMos land-attack supersonic cruise missile system in the western sector of Rajasthan.
The flight conducted today from one of the firing ranges in the western sector met its mission parameters. The weapon successfully hit and annihilated the designated target, officials said.
“BrahMos has proved its mettle once again as the best supersonic cruise missile system in the world,” Sudhir Mishra, CEO and MD of BrahMos Aerospace, said, while congratulating the IAF for the successful mission.
DRDO chief S Christopher congratulated the IAF, BrahMos team and DRDO scientists involved in the mission.
The accuracy in mountain warfare mode was recently re-established in a campaign conducted by the Indian Army in the eastern sector last year and repeated last month, a release from BrahMos aerospace said.
This formidable missile system has empowered all three wings of the armed forces with impeccable anti-ship and land attack capability.
