PARIS (BNS): Test launch of the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile will be carried out from the Indian Navy's Project 11356 frigate in early 2011 in the Baltic Sea, BrahMos Aerospace Joint Managing Director Alexander Maksichev has said.

"Cruise missile BRAHMOS will be tested during the ship's sea trials in the Baltic; that will happen early next year," an Itar-Tass report quoting Maksichev said Tuesday.

Maksichev who was attending the Euronaval 10 said, it was difficult to set the precise time for the trials as it will all depend on the weather in the Baltic.

The Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad is building three Project 11356 frigates for the Indian Navy. The first of them would start sea and mooring trials very soon, Maksichev said.

He added that all the work related to the BRAHMOS weapon system installation and commissioning is on schedule.
