New Delhi: The Defence Ministry on Thursday entered into a contract for the purchase of extra Brahmos missiles for front-line warships for the amount of 1700 crore rupees.

A joint venture between India and Russia called Brahmos Aerospace Private Limited (BAPL) has made a significant contribution to the development of the new generation of Surface-to-Surface Missiles.

How it will help India

The inclusion of these dual-role capable missiles will significantly increase the fleet assets of the Indian Navy’s operational capacity.
The ensuing communication will greatly increase domestic manufacture of the crucial armament system. The Brahmos missiles are expected to improve ammunition with the active involvement of local industries.

Brahmos Missiles: All you need to know about them

The air-breathing BrahMos fires at around three times the speed of sound at Mach 2.8. A “precision-strike conventional (non-nuclear) weapon” has arisen in the form of missiles. In Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh, the Army created missile batteries for the BrahMos missile. Alongside the missiles are tanks, howitzers, surface-to-air missiles, and other weaponry. The last guided missile destroyer for the Indian Navy, INS Visakhapatnam, was commissioned in November 2021.

In January 2022, INS Visakhapatnam successfully tested the missile’s extended range variant. Additionally, the missiles have already been installed on ten front-line vessels, and five more destroyers already have vertical launchers.

India has inducted two BrahMos squadrons that are land-based, and Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jets are also gradually receiving the more streamlined air-launched variant of the system. The original 290 km range of the BrahMos, developed jointly by Russia, has been increased to 350–400 km.
