NEW DELHI (PTI): The Indian Army on Tuesday successfully test fired an advanced version of BRAHMOS land-attack cruise missile in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, revalidating the weapon's strike capability.

The land-to-land configuration of BRAHMOS missile was launched from a mobile autonomous launcher (MAL).

The test firing of the block III version of the missile demonstrated the weapon's unmatched lethality of hitting the centre of a designated target with "bull's eye" precision, a senior army officer said.

He said the supersonic cruise missile successfully hit the land-based target with desired precision in a "top attack configuration", meeting all flight parameters in a copybook manner.

The test firing involved high level and complex manoeuvering by the missile, said the official.
