NEW DELHI (Sputnik) – India successfully conducted a test of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in the Arabian Sea, India’s Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) reported.

“The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully launched today, October 18, 2020, from the home-made Indian Navy INS Chennai stealth destroyer. The missile hit the target with pinpoint accuracy,” DRDO posted on Twitter.

The Indo-Russian company BrahMos Aerospace, created in 1998, specializes in the development of supersonic cruise missiles that can be launched from land, ships, aircraft or submarines.

The main function of the BrahMos missiles is to destroy land and naval targets, but the director of that joint venture, Alexandr Maxichev, advanced to Sputnik last September that engineers plan to complete by 2024 the development of a model capable of destroying control aircraft and aerial surveillance, AWACS, for its acronym in English.
