India Builds Supersonic Cruise Missile for Navy
 
 
(Source: Indian Ministry of Defence; issued August 26, 2004)
 
 
 After a series of successful flight trials from ship and land the BrahMos missile has proved its accurate performance against ship target with devastative destruction capability. The Navy has placed a Letter of Interest for inducting BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missiles in certain types of ships and in shore.  
 
Production has commenced for induction in the Indian Navy in 2005.  
 
The missile has a maximum range of 290 kms. As there is no equivalent of BrahMos missile in any other country, the Indian Navy’s fire power will enhance multiple times, thereby getting the competitive advantage in warfare.  
 
This information was given by the Defence Minister Shri Pranab Mukherjee in a written reply [to Parliament.]
