New Delhi, Indian Navy successfully demonstrated the accuracy of an extended-range land attack Brahmos supersonic cruise missile when it was test fired from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai on March 5.
The missile hit its intended target with pinpoint accuracy after traversing an extended range trajectory and performing complex manoeuvres.
Both the Brahmos missile and INS Chennai are indigenously built and highlight the cutting-edge of Indian missile and ship-building prowess. They reinforce the Indian Navy’s contribution towards the Atmanirbhar Bharat and Make in India endeavours.
The current achievement establishes the Indian Navy’s ability to strike even deeper and influence land operations further away from sea, when and where required.
