    We need undersea Brahmos for offensive capability from submarines.

    why was there a interruption in booster phase ? In this video I noticed, first booster firing at 18 sec for half a second, then sustained booster phase 21 sec onwards. Then booster should take this to 14000 meters altitude, where scramjet engine will take over, cruising at this altitude. Was this transition from booster stage to cruise filmed ?

    I know, but we don't have a platform for it.

    We don't have aircraft that can follow Brahmos.

    It's ramjet btw.

    @ 18Sec is the firing of the nose cone that clear the intake - NOT Main Engine
    Then

    @ 22sec is the firing of the main Engine

    Missile has a free-fall of approx 15 sec , means approx 1.1 KM drop. Su 30 with large radar cross-section, carrying 2.5 ton Brahmos at nearly 14000 meters, the aircraft carrying this missile will be very vulnerable.

    Any Bomber will have the same issue yes or no? (eg B52, B1,Tu22M, H6k etc etc)

    Very Sure the IAF will have SOPs in place for this

    Successful firing of Brahmos Air Launched Missile from Su-30 MKI Aircraft

    Today, IAF has successfully fired the BrahMos air version anti shipping missile from its frontline Su-30 MKI fighter aircraft off the Eastern Coast. The launch from the aircraft was smooth and the missile followed the desired trajectory before directly hitting the ship target. The missile was fired by the test crew comprising Wg Cdr Prashant Nair and Wg Cdr KP Kiran Kumar. The chase aircraft was flown by Sqn Ldr Angad Pratap and Gp Capt Badrish N Athreya.

    The air launched BrahMos missile is a 2.5 ton supersonic air to surface cruise missile with ranges of more than 400 kms. The IAF is the first Air Force in the world to have successfully fired an air launched 2.8 Mach surface attack missile of this category.

    The integration on the aircraft was very complex involving mechanical, electrical and software modifications on aircraft.

    The IAF was totally involved in the activity from its inception. The software development of the aircraft was undertaken by the IAF engineers while the HAL carried out mechanical and electrical modifications on aircraft.

    One of the major challenges overcome by scientists of RCI, DRDO in the missile development was optimization of Transfer Alignment of the inertial sensors of the missile.

    The rich experience of the IAF flight test crew ensured that the integration was smooth. The dedicated and synergetic efforts of the IAF, DRDO, BAPL and HAL have proven the capability of the nation to undertake such complex integrations on its own.

    The firing could be successfully undertaken with dedicated support from Indian Navy by way of ensuring availability of the target and a large number of monitoring ships to ensure range safety clearance.

    The BrahMos missile provides Indian Air Force a much desired capability to strike from large stand-off ranges on any target be in sea or land with pinpoint accuracy by day or night and in all weather conditions. The capability of the missile coupled with the superlative performance of the Su-30 aircraft gives the IAF a strategic reach and allows it to dominate the ocean and the battle fields.

    The mission profile here still is not fully revealing the max extent of the range...

    Interesting to note that ALCM has a heavier warhead by 100 kg and warhead is all conventional..

    and for all people who have propagated the TERCOM being a key component of subsonic missile, BMos still goes 3-4m.. Which is pretty good at that speed..

    Accuracy of 1m is very very sharp.. the GLCM Block 3 and Block 3+/4 with extra S and inverted S capability and almost 90 degree steep dive with extra Kinetic energy is very effective for mountains and deep bunkers.

    from http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/brahmos-test-india-china-russia/1/791087.html

    From the same article from 2016
    The test will hit the warship target at an angle of 65 degrees and destroy it. But this capability would not enough to stop an aircraft carrier of over 60,000 tonnes. "Carriers have sealable compartments designed to survive multiple hits from anti-ship missiles," one missile scientist says. This is where Phase 2 of the Brahmos missile test comes in next year-fitting a modified radar seeker on the missile that can lock onto a moving aircraft carrier and plunge onto its decks in a near 90-degree death dive. The deck of a large aircraft carrier-nearly 300 metres long and 75 metres wide-presents the largest available target for a homing cruise missile's radar seeker.

    "The sheer kinetic energy of the missile travelling at nearly three times the speed of sound and the high explosive warhead will destroy the aircraft carrier," a scientist says. This development comes amidst reports of China's aircraft carrier programme.


    Thus the extra warhead weight, S and inverted S loop and diving almost 90 degree making this ALCM Block 3+/4 (like the mountain version deployed in Arunachal with 3+/4)

    It would be interesting which version is fired by IAF... and will they enact firing both the versions to a moving target instead of a moving and a stationary target (AShM and LACM)..
    Logic says should test both LACM and AShM capabilities first and then collect more data on the steep dive maneuver in order to understand the efficient way of increase in Kinetic energy to take out the ACCs...

    That would make Single Brahmos far more deadly in its present version and pave way to development of NG with better capabilities at lighter weight and lesser dimensions..

    Bhai, if anyone ever doubts the accuracy of BrahMos, just show them these gifs...

    Missile is flying through target approx 3 -4 m height ...horizontally.

    After supersonic success of BrahMos, DRDO to make its booster motor in India

    After successfully launching the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet, the Indian scientists are now working on making the missile more indigenous.

    The scientists from High Energy Materials Research Laboratory (HEMRL) who have worked on high energy materials in BrahMos stated that they will be developing the booster motor of BrahMos ingenuously at HEMRL.

    PK Mehta, director general (Armament and Combat Engineering) DRDO said, "All the missile program of the country has some connection with Pune's HEMRL as in every missile, the high energy material is used."

    "In case of BrahMos missile, HEMRL has played key role when it comes to use of high energy material. So far, the booster motor used in BrahMos is being supplied by our joint venture partner Russia. However, now the booster motor is going to be developed in the country. The development of the booster motor is being worked out at HEMRL. Once it is done, BrahMos will have the large indigenous component," Mehta added.

    Brahmos, the supersonic cruise missile was tested for the first time from a Sukhoi-30MKI jet on Wednesday.

    "The BrahMos missile so far was being fire tested from land and naval platform. Now it has been fired successfully from SU-30 platform also. After the successful test from air platform, the effective range of the missile has increased. Now the missile can be fire with pinpoint accuracy from nearly 250 to 300 kilometers away from the target," Mehta said.

    When asked about the policy on high energy materials being worked by the government, Mehta said, "It is a white paper primary to do with strategic material which country needs. The government wants to ensure that it wants to keep the resources intact and if the need arises they can be imported and made available."
