    QRSAM with indigenous RF seeker is now on advanced stages. Can expect test firing this year.

    Tender documents. 1 Year wait max.

    Only IA version under development now. Both QR and SR requirement will be filled by this missile.
    IA canceled QRSAM tender last week.

    Google translated & slightly edited article from a Russian source : http://sdelanounas.ru/blogs/90244/

    News of the BrahMos

    Russian-Indian joint venture BrahMos was established in 1998, named after the Brahmaputra and Moscow rivers. The main project of the company was a supersonic cruise missile, which received a similar name - "BrahMos". The first launch was on June 12, 2001 from a shore launcher.

    The first launch of the Russian-Indian supersonic missile "BrahMos" from Su-30MKI at a sea target will take place in the next 2-3 months. And work on the creation of hypersonic missiles, capable of speeds of 4-5 thousand kilometers per hour, will take 2-3 years. This was told the managing director of the Russian-Indian joint venture "BrahMos Aerospace" Sudhir Kumar Mishra.

    [​IMG]

    he said - "In December last year the first reset layout missiles" BrahMos-A "in flight, in March plan to hold three such dumping was carried out."

    After that will hold two full-time starter "BrahMos-A" missiles on board a fighter, in which Russian and Indian specialists to participate. One missile with dummy warhead will be launched at a moving maritime target and the second missile - on stationary ground target. "

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    "BrahMos" is becoming the world's first cruise missile for tactical combat aircraft, combining supersonic speed, long range (up to 300 km), powerful penetrating warhead (weight up to 250 kg) and an active homing head with a detection range of up to 80 km and scan sector -45 - +45 degrees. The latter allows to implement the principle of "fire and forget" - the rocket will automatically find the target.

    [​IMG]

    However, no country has ever integrated such heavy missiles on fighter - the weight of "BrahMos" on the hardpoint of Su-30MKI is now almost 2.5 tons. Air-launched missile is lighter than land or ship variant by 500 kg.

    [​IMG]

    To test the new, air-launched missiles two Indian Su-30MKI have been upgraded. Now the multi-role fighters are the main striking force of the Indian Air Force - 230 aircraft are in service and the total order in the country is 270. And in the world as a whole aircraft, built on the concept of the Su-30MKI, ordered more than 470( including Su 30 SM?).

    [​IMG]

    Fighters for Delhi currently produced in India under the license of Russian corporation "Irkut". To equip the "drying" (?) "BrahMos", Russian and Indian specialists had to make a number of structural changes, in particular to strengthen the attachment of suspension and "connection" with missile avionics.

    [​IMG]

    Testing began in late June last year. These included a series of flights with the weight and dimensional layout missiles, and then the rocket itself with a fighter without starting its engine.

    With the combination of "BrahMos" missile and Su-30MKI fighters, able to fly without refueling at a distance of 3000 km (with Brahmos?), Russia and India may get a shock complex, which has no equal in effectiveness in the class of non-nuclear aircraft weapons, experts say
    . In addition, it can significantly extend the range of the Su-30MK fighters customers, mainly among coastal states with large territory.

    [​IMG]

    At the same time, Russia and India are working on two other projects - a hypersonic missile, which is planned to be 1-2 thousand kilometers per hour faster than supersonic and easy version of "BrahMos", which reduced the weight by almost 1.5 times - up to 1400 kg.

    According to preliminary estimates, the rocket will be set up in two or three years. Previously, general designer and director general of the NGO Engineering Alexander Leonov said that the lighter version of "BrahMos" can be installed on the fifth-generation fighter T-50.


    [​IMG]

    "Until 2022 the total value of orders of BrahMos is 8 billion dollars", - informed Pathak, refusing to name the number of missiles ordered by the three branches of the armed forces of India.

    [​IMG]

    According to him, to date with 11 surface ships of the Indian Navy, including frigates of Project 11356 and Project 15A destroyers & four regiments of the Army are armed with Brahmos missile.. Two regiments CB will be armed with these missiles in the near future. "BrahMos" is also ordered by the Air Force in India.

    [​IMG]

    According to the Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), in the years 2006-2014, India had 75 anti-ship missiles (ASM) "BrahMos" and 315 missiles "BrahMos-A" air-based to equip the Su-30MKI. (?)

    RFID tags to keep track of ordnance factories’ ammunition

    In a first-ever exercise, ammunition produced in all ordnance factories will get radio frequency identification (RFID) tags containing details of the make, batch and manufacturing date and time. This project will improve “traceability” of the ammunitions kept across the depots and for better mobilisation of such items in case of need. The ordnance factory is carrying out the project following discussions with the Army. This will entail an investment of Rs 400 crore with the process expected to start by end of this year, said sources in the ordnance factory board. RFID will provide traceability of the ammunition. This means the Army, which is the user, will be able to track all the vital facts about the ordnance. Apart from the date of manufacture, details like the shop floor in which it was made, the shift timings and even the worker engaged in the job can be known. He added tagging the ammunition has greater significance when India is stepping up production to supply them to other countries. “The authorities will be able to keep track of the ammunition that needs to be taken out of stock and destroyed quickly since all the details will be available at the click of a mouse,” the source said. TOI has learnt that GS1 India, an entity set up by commerce and industry ministry along with leading industry chambers, has been engaged with central ammunition depot (CAD) Pulgaon in Maharashtra for the use of such automatic identification and data capture technologies based on global standards for ammunition supply chain management. CAD Pulgaon is responsible for the supply of ammunition and explosives across India, after receiving them from different procurement agencies including ordnance factories. Sources said using RFID tags is being seen as a better option over barcoding since to read barcodes the reading devices have to be kept close to the products. “RFID tags is much better since the divides can read details from a distance, say of 100 meters. That will be a safer proposition since here items are ammunitions,” a source privy to the development said.



    It's about damn time we have some accountability and track ability of our weapons. When u have entire stock in your database, it will be much easier to know where your assets are and how many?

    Updates from Prasun K. Sengupta -

    The Pralay will be a loitering missile that weighs much lesser than BrahMos, and will be powered by HTFE-25 turbofan.

    check above pdf that I uploaded .................... 9m in length 12T Missile Jig ..............
    any missile weighing less than Brahmos and powered by 15 -27kn T/F will be at least mach 2.5 ........................

    anyway I am putting this theory of prasunji of Pralay being powered by 25kn engine along with his alien theories .......................

    Regarding Pralay
    Any word about ramjet / scramjet Propulsion.... What will be its speed regime !?

    Subsonic won't make sense (Because Nirbhay....)

    Could it be a improved indigenized version of Brahmos !?

    This is confusing...

    To me it's China specific shorya with better maneuerability to target their air-defense systems and air bases in TAR and also as a troop killer to halt advances .................

    Not improved version because B-NG is already there in development ............. scramjet is HSTDV .............. subsonic is a joke unless it is a saturation attack ..............
