BENGALURU (BNS): The BRAHMOS recognised as the fastest supersonic cruise missile is one of the major attractions at Aero India 2021 which began here today.

The BRAHMOS with a lethal trident-like combination of speed, precision plus power has emerged as a game changer for India elevating its image worldwide.

The stealthy killer has a range of 290 km and rams its targets at a maximum velocity of Mach 2.8 after cruising at altitudes varying from a mere 10 m to 15 km.

BrahMos Aerospace, the JV entity between India’s DRDO and Russia’s NPOM, is exhibiting the air, land and sea variants of the powerful weapon system at the biennial event.

The Mobile Autonomous Launcher with 3 missile configuration is on display at the India Pavilion. Other displays at the airshow include the BRAHMOS-NG, along with various indigenously developed system and the full scale airborne missile with the SU-30MKI.

The state-of-the-art BRAHMOS weapon system is a multi-platform cruise missile that can strike from various types of land, sea and air-based platforms, including mobile and fixed ones. The missile is capable of flights at supersonic speeds, making it hard for enemy radar to track, as well as being practically invincible to modern anti-missile and air defence systems.
