India successfully test-fires extended range BrahMos missile

New Delhi: Massively bolstering India’s combat capability and enhancing national security, the BRAHMOS surface-to-surface supersonic cruise missile featuring an indigenous Booster and Airframe Section along with many other Made in India sub-systems was successfully test fired on Wednesday for designated range at 1030 hours today on September 30, 2020 from ITR, Balasore in Odisha.

This was a test of the extended version of the missile that has a strike range of 400 kms. It is the second time that the extended-range version of BrahMos has been test-fired. BrahMos missile was originally built with a range of 290 kms.
 
The test firing was jointly conducted by DRDO and BrahMos Aerospace.
 
In a press release issued here by the Brahmos Aerospace, “The BRAHMOS Land-Attack Cruise Missile (LACM) incorporating an indigenously developed first stage solid propellant booster along with other major ‘Made-in-India’ components was successfully test launched today. Cruising at a top speed of Mach 2.8, the precision attack weapon flew for designated full range.”
 
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh congratulated DRDO and team BrahMos for the spectacular mission. Dr Satheesh Reedy, Secretary DRDO congratulated the scientific community with this feat

“Congratulate @DRDO_India on the successful test-firing of an extended range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. The missile with an indigenous booster will further strengthen India's defence capability,” tweeted Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
 
Today’s successful launch has paved the way for the serial production of the indigenous booster and other indigenous components of the powerful BRAHMOS Weapon System realising ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ pledge.
