    Can you please elaborate more on this? Unless one designed it, how can a third party identify this?

    Or are there schematics out there?

    Because Brahmos sport a similar fuel tank to that of Russian P-800 Onix. The only difference being, due to MTCR regulations, a screen had to be included in the fuel tank to reduce its capacity. This reduced fuel capacity is what reduced the missile's overall range. Reducing the fuel capacity thereby helped make Brahmos, MTCR compliant. However there is no mention about, if India could ever be stopped from using the fuel tanks to full capacity if a war ever broke out. :achmed:

    As for the schematics, the entire airframe of Brahmos is made in India. So... :innocent:

    Good Day!

    Ok. So I know about the explanation you gave. But saying a separator sounded more of a fact than a theory to me. :blink:

    How the Speed will be affected when the range is increased? i always thought that Brahmos consume all its larger fuel tank to maintain Mac3 throughout the flight. if range increase means reducing speed , may be cover the distance in subsonic speed and near the target increase the speed?

    Russia and India to develop BrahMos light cruise missile for PAK FA 5th-generation jet

    REUTOV, January 27. /TASS/. The BrahMos light cruise missile will be mounted both in submarines’ torpedo launchers and on Russia’s fifth-generation T-50 PAK FA (Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation) fighter jet, CEO and General Designer of the Machine-Building R&D Consortium Alexander Leonov said on Friday.

    "We are working on the missile’s light version. It should fit the size of a torpedo tube and be almost 1.5 times smaller by its weight. It will be possible to mount our airborne missile on a wide range [of aircraft]. Of course, we’ll be developing it, first of all, for the fifth-generation plane but, possibly, it will be mounted on the MiG-35 fighter, although we have not carried out such developments," he said.

    The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile is the product of Russia’s Machine-Building Research and Development Consortium and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization, which set up BrahMos Aerospace joint venture in 1998.

    The missile’s name comes from the names of two rivers: the Indian Brahmaputra of and the Russian Moscow river. The missile has a range of 290 km and carries a warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kg.

    800km.....

    Now we are talking... It's more than 650+ km we said here..

    @Abingdonboy @vstol jockey
    800km .. Air launched version from high altitude should reach a bit more..
    Its Great news really

    If Navy surface ships get this 800km range missile it will be an awesome capability extension.. I hope we get sub torpedo launch version too .. that if we can mate it with our subs, it will boost our reach and firepower by a huge margin

    For submarine launched long range anti ship and land attack missile , work is already on for Klubs.

    450 Km minimum range for super sonic anti ship variant and 650 km + range for subsonic land attack variant.

    I'm skeptic about this range. Even P-800 Oniks only have 600km. It maybe on some particular maneuver or air launched.
    4 regiments guarding Tibet is good enough deterrence to any dragons.

    Well as the cat is out of the bag, it was never 290 to begin with.

    And yet again when we said that out , our friends from Western border and eastern border mocked us at brahmos being 290km...

    I hope they learn now what's in store.

    Btw will China now understand both Agni 4 and 5 can hit them hard as they are actually ICBMs... ??

    We might be able to do it bcz Oniks RnD was long way back and now fuel has much evolved.. we can get better motors too.. and possibly a small booster stage with a pulse motor.. possibility exists.. we have to see how we can implement it..

    But anything between 650-800km will mean the indigenous subsonic CM will have to be in the range of 1000-1500km range as @MilSpec Pointed Klub is already there is almost 600km plus range in subsonic speed..

    Edit

    For Tibet TAR, block 4 will come soon with surround and steep dive at 90 degree and double S maneuver capability in order to take on deep bunkers protected by natural fortifications
