The BrahMos is a super sonic cruise missile of medium-range which is capable of launching from any platform either it be land or submarines or fighter jet warships. Developed by the joint Cooperation of DRDO and NPOM (leading aerosapce enterprise of Russia).
Earlier in January, first Sukmoi-30 MKI squadron armed with BrahMos missiles, with a range of 1500 km without mid-air-refueling, commissioned at Thanjuvar.
The armed force commissioned fighter jet and land-based version of with a range of 290 km, that can move upto 3 times the speed of the sound at mach 2.8 was test-fired from Sukmoi-30 last year. These ground-to-air missiles can penetrate into the comouflaged terror camps deep inside the enemy’s territory, high value military targets, command and control centres and can also strike the underground nuclear bunkers.
In June 2016, India joined 34 nation Missile Technology Control Regime(MTCR). MTCR is responsible for keeping a check on the range of the missiles upto the range of 300 km. With this, it "removed the caps" and helped in extending the range upto 450 km the range of this missile jointly developed by Russia,
