BENGALURU (BNS): In an impressive display of its missile making capabilities, BrahMos Aerospace, the producer of BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile system, is exhibiting the air, land and sea variants of the world-class weapon at Aero India 2017 in Bengaluru.

A full-scale model of the air launched variant of BRAHMOS integrated with Sukhoi-30 strike fighter of the Indian Air Force is a major draw at the five-day international event which started on February 14.

The BRAHMOS-A programme is steadily advancing in its live test firing from the long-range Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter in the coming months.

The air launched variant of the formidable missile has lesser weight and additional rear fins for aerodynamic stability during separation from the aircraft and launch.

The Indian Air Force has chosen the Su-30MKI as the launch platform for the 290-km range BRAHMOS.

Besides the air-launched missile, BrahMos Aerospace is also displaying the land-attack and anti-ship variants of the weapon at the 11th edition of Aero India. Also in focus is the underwater launch version of the missile which has been successfully test-fired in 2013.

The JV entity between India & Russia has established a robust “Missile Industrial Complex” wherein a large number of public and private sector firms are associated in the design, development and production of the missile.

To highlight the indigenous efforts made by several Indian firms, the company is exhibiting some of the critical systems and sub-systems of the weapon supplied by these firms.

The Government has initiated the ambitious Make-In-India programme to realise full-scale indigenisation of the Indian defence industry, and BRAHMOS has emerged as a perfect role model in this campaign.
