India successfully test-fired BrahMos supersonic cruise missile
This is not the first time India has conducted a new weapon test in the near future. On September 30th, India successfully tested a BrahMos supersonic cruise missile with a domestic booster from a test site off the coast of Orissa.
The “Dreadnought” short-range supersonic tactical missile and the latest SMART anti-submarine missile were subsequently successfully tested. There are also reports of successful testing of the new anti-radar missile Rudram-1 and Prithvi-2 (Prithvi-2) ballistic missiles.
The Russian-Indian joint venture “BrahMos Aerospace” (BrahMos Aerospace) was established in 1998 and named it to commemorate the Brahmaputra and Moskva Rivers. The company produces cruise missiles of the same name, launch equipment, and missile control systems, builds warehouses, and is responsible for personnel training, missile maintenance and upgrades.
