India wants Russian navy to induct BrahMos
India asked Russia on Tuesday to induct the 290-kilometre range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in its navy to strengthen the joint venture between the two countries. This was conveyed to the Russian deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin here by the head of the BrahMos joint venture A Sivathanu Pillai.

BrahMos missile has been inducted in all the three wings of the Indian armed forces, but the Russian side has not yet done so.

During Rogozin's visit to the BrahMos complex, Pillai urged him to ensure induction of the missile in the Russian navy, officials said. The Russian deputy prime minister was given a presentation about the missile's capabilities and recent achievements along with live demonstration of its mobile launcher. Assuring full support to the BrahMos CEO, Rogozin said, 'BrahMos is not only a successful joint venture but also a model for cooperation which has immense political value for our two countries.'
