KUALA LUMPUR (BNS): Malaysia's Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi applauded the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile during his visit to the BrahMos Aerospace pavilion at the Defence Services Asia 2010 here on Tuesday.

The Minister took a view of all four variants of the weapon system land, sea, air and underwater, and was briefed about its unique capabilities.

He also congratulated the BrahMos team present at the exhibition for the recent successful launch of BRAHMOS in vertical configuration from a moving warship.

BRAHMOS has already proved its mettle in the land and sea versions and has been inducted in the Indian Army and Navy.

Work is under progress to develop the missile's air and submarine-launched variants.

Malaysia, which is hosting the 12th edition of the Defence Services Asia, has evinced interest in the world's only supersonic cruise missile. The country is planning to procure a range of weapon systems, aircraft and ships to strengthen its armed forces as stated by its Defence Minister earlier.

DSA 2010, showcasing cutting-edge technology for the army, navy, air force as well as for the security and homeland enforcement agencies, is Asia's largest defence and security exhibition and among the five of the most prestigious defence exhibitions in the world.
