BENGALURU (BNS): Chairman, Chiefs of Staff Committee and Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Sunil Lanba and Indian Air Force Chief Air Chief Marshal B S Dhanoa visited the BrahMos Aerospace pavilion on the second day of Aero India 2017 being held at Bengaluru.
The Service Chiefs were briefed about the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile programme and its latest developments.
While the Indian Navy has inducted the formidable missile in its frontline warships, the Indian Air Force’s Sukhoi-30 strike fighter is gearing up to test fire the deadly air-to-land variant of the versatile weapon in the coming months.
A full-scale model of BRAHMOS-A missile integrated with the Sukhoi-30 aircraft is being displayed at Aero India 2017. The air-borne launcher for the missile developed indigenously by BrahMos Aerospace is also being exhibited at the international show along with other indigenous systems.
Also on display are the land and sea variants of BRAHMOS.
Jointly designed, developed and produced by India’s DRDO and Russia’s NPOM, the multi-role, multi-platform BRAHMOS has established its supremacy as an unparalleled weapon system in its class. With both land-attack and anti-ship strike capabilities, BRAHMOS has become the ultimate weapon of choice for the Indian Armed Forces.
