    Navy successfully test-fires Brahmos supersonic missile
    India today successfully test-fired a land-attack BrahMos supersonic cruise missile today.

    "Land attack version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was fired for the first time from an Indian Navy's stealth frigate, off the eastern coast, at a land target," said a source in the Ministry of Defence.

    "So, far only anti-ship version of BrahMos had been fired by Indian Navy," the source added.

    This puts India in a select club of nations with such capability.

    The land-attack version of BrahMos has been operationalised in the Indian Army since 2007.




    The BrahMos missile, with a range of 290 km and a Mach 2.8 speed, is capable of being launched from land, sea and sub-sea pads against sea and land targets.

    BrahMos, jointly developed by India and Russia, is considered the only supersonic cruise missile in the world. The missile was first inducted in the India Navy in 2005.

    When I first saw the article, I yawned.... Title says Brahmos successful again....... Yeah...:blah::blah::blah: .
    We know it works and works real good. Nothing exciting. I read it anyways.

    But, this is a whole new missile, A Land Attack version. @ni8mare can u change title to reflect its a land Attack version.
    Excellent development. Also we should change 290 KM to MILES. Its not a short range missile as we were first told.

    We are increasing the range and it will be increased to 600 KM in june and 800+ km in next couple of years. This will bring a lots of more area of china under our reach and whole pakistan shall be included.

    I always wondered, what would be the difference in algorithm, if any, for a guided projectile to travel from point A to point B, whether over sea or land, besides the terrain contour?
