Let us tell you that India is going to do many tests of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile amidst the ongoing dispute with China in Ladakh. The BrahMos missile can also be fired from land, sea and fighter jets. India has already deployed a large number of BrahMos missiles at several strategic sites along the border with China in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.
The BrahMos missile is a medium range ‘Ramjet supersonic cruise’ missile jointly developed by DRDO and Russia’s leading aerospace venture NPOM, which can be fired from submarines, warships, fighters jets and land. The missile is already with the Indian Army, Navy and Air Force. It is considered to be the world’s fastest supersonic cruise missile. In May last year, the Indian Air Force successfully test-fired an aerial version of the BrahMos missile from the Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter aircraft.
