New Delhi/ Pokhran: India on Thursday successfully test-fired the Brahmos supersonic cruise missile with an indigenous seeker at Pokhran test range in Rajasthan. Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said the missile hit the target with "pin-point" accuracy and the success will further bolster India's national security.
The test firing comes three months after the Brahmos cruise missile was successfully test fired for the first time from the Indian Air Force's frontline Sukhoi-30 MKI combat jet. "Formidable Supersonic Cruise Missile #BrahMos was successfully flight tested at 8:42 AM today at Pokhran test range, Rajasthan. The precision strike weapon with Indian-made seeker flew in its designated trajectory and hit the target with pin-point accuracy," Sitharaman tweeted. Brahmos is a joint venture between DRDO of India and NPO Mashinostroyenia (NPOM) of Russia.
