The Indian Navy successfully test-fired the BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile (BRAHMOS Supersonic Cruise Missile) on Sunday. The Navy conducted this test with the indigenous stealth destroyer INS Chennai (INS Chennai). The BrahMos missile successfully targeted its target in the Arabian Sea. The missile successfully pierced the target with pin point. Defense Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated the DRDO and the Indian Navy on this occasion.
BrahMos as a ‘prime strike weapon’ will ensure the invincibility of the warship by targeting long-range targets. Thus the destroyer warship has become a deadly platform of the Indian Navy. The BrahMos missile has been jointly designed, developed and produced by India and Russia.
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has thanked the Indian Navy, BrahMos and the team of Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) for the successful test. At the same time, Dr. Satish Reddy, Chairman of DRDO has thanked all the staff and scientists of DRDO, BrahMos, Indian Navy and the industry team for this successful event. He said that BrahMos missiles will increase the capabilities of the Indian armed forces in many ways.
