India successfully testfired the surface to surface BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The Andaman and Nicobar Command of the Indian Armed Forces said that the extended range missile hit its target with pinpoint accuracy.

The BrahMos is a Medium-range Ramjet Supersonic Cruise Missile that can be launched from Submarine, Surface Warship, Aircraft or Land. It is one of the fastest supersonic cruise missiles in the world. It is a joint-venture between the Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya and India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), who together have formed BrahMos Aerospace.

BrahMos is a two stage with a solid propellant booster engine as its first stage which brings it to a supersonic speed, higher than the speed of sound, and then gets seperated.

BrahMos-2 is a hypersonic cruise missile currently under joint development by India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyenia, which have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited. It is the second of the BrahMos series of cruise missiles. The BrahMos-II is expected to have a range of 1,000 kilometres.
