The Navy wrote on Twitter, “Successful test-firing of the extended-range #BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from #INSVisakhapatnam, #IndianNavy’s newest indigenously-built guided missile destroyer, represents a twin achievement…- certifies the accuracy of the ship’s combat system & armament complex. – validates a new capability the missile provides the Navy & Nation. Augurs very well for #AatmaNirbharBharat & provides the Navy yet another shot in the arm. This is a historic day indeed Sam no Varunah! (sic).”

In December 2020, BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in anti-ship mode, was successfully test-fired against a decommissioned Ship. The test firing was carried out by Indian Navy. The missile performed highly complex manoeuvres and hit Bull’s eye of the target.

BrahMos is the supersonic cruise missile jointly developed by DRDO and NPOM of Russia as a Brahmos Aerospace joint venture, which became Brahmos Aerospace Private Limited. The missile has established itself as a major force multiplier in modern-day complex battlefields with its impeccable anti-ship and land-attack capabilities with multi-role and multi-platform abilities and has been deployed in all the three wings of the Indian Armed Forces.

The first launch of Brahmos took place in 2001 and numerous launches have taken place from various ships, Mobile Autonomous Launchers and Su-30 MKI aircraft, making it a versatile weapon.
