In the midst of the impasse with China in the east of the Ladakh region, India successfully tested this Sunday a supersonic cruise missile BrahMos from its destroyer INS Chennai.
After performing very complex maneuvers, the missile accurately hit the target in the Arabian Sea.
As the “main weapon of attack”, BrahMos will ensure the protection of the Indian warship, allowing it to reach surface naval targets at great distances.
The supersonic missile is considered an important milestone in military cooperation between Russia and India.
THE Army Indian has already deployed BrahMos cruise missiles, with a range of 400 km, and Nirbhay cruise missiles, with a range of 800 km, in the Ladakh region.
Tensions with China remain high despite several rounds of both military and diplomatic talks between the two countries.
On September 30, India successfully tested a long-range supersonic BrahMos cruise missile, with a locally manufactured booster, from a facility off the coast of Odisha.
