NEW DELHI: Today on the 8th of May 2015, an advanced version of BRAHMOS land-attack cruise missile was successfully test fired in the eastern sector, revalidating the formidable weapon's precision strike capability.

The land-to-land configuration of BRAHMOS Block-III version was test launched from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL) for its full-range of 290-kms at 1310 hrs.

The flight was witnessed by Additional Director General Artillery along with many senior officers from the Indian Army & Indian Air Force.

Meeting all flight parameters including high level manoeuvers, the supersonic cruise missile successfully hit the designated land-based target with desired accuracy, officials confirmed.

Today's launch was the 47th test-firing of BRAHMOS, with the missile achieving unmatched precise hit.

"Today BRAHMOS LACM has been tested in the Eastern Sector. The test has once again established our missile as an incredibly lethal weapon with pin-point accuracy to take on enemy targets anywhere. I congratulate the Indian Army on this successful launch," Sudhir Mishra, CEO & MD of BrahMos Aerospace said.

BRAHMOS has been jointly developed by India and Russia. The multi-mission missile, having a range of 290-km and flying at a speed of Mach 2.8, is capable of being launched from land, sea, sub-sea and air against sea and land targets.

The air version BRAHMOS is being readied for flight trial from the Indian Air Force's Su-30MKI strike fighter very soon.
