Indian Navy successfully test-fires BrahMos missile from warship

Indian Navy carried out a successful precision strike in the Arabian Sea by ship launched BrahMos missile with Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) designed Indigenous Seeker and Booster. The missile test was carried out from a Kolkata-class guided missile destroyer warship.

BrahMos Aerospace Pvt Ltd, an India-Russian joint venture, manufactures BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles (also designated as PJ-10) that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or land platforms. BrahMos missile flies at a speed of 2.8 Mach or almost three times the speed of sound. The per unit cost of the missile is expected to be approximately USD 5 million.

India is also exporting BrahMos missiles. Notably, in January 2022, India sealed a $375 million deal with the Philippines for supplying three batteries of the missile.
