India-China standoff: Indian navy to acquire 38 wide-range BrahMos missiles for new warships soon

Amid the ongoing Indo-China border dispute on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in eastern Ladakh and ongoing tensions on the border with Pakistan, the strength of the Indian navy is set to increase. The Navy is going to buy 38 new high-range BrahMos missiles for its new warships.

The missiles have a range of 450 km. Can easily pierce any target of the distant enemy. If any Sino-Pakistani warship comes against these missiles, they can be targeted by destroying them in the blink of an eye. The missiles will be fitted on the Visakhapatnam class warships under construction by the Indian Navy, which will be in active service in the near future.

A further 38 range of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles will cost Rs. The Rs 1,800 crore proposal is with the defense ministry and is likely to be approved soon. The BrahMos will be the main strike weapon of warships. Many warships are already engaged.

The Indian Navy also tested a BrahMos missile from its warship INS Chennai. The missile has a range of 400 km. At the distant target was the sea level. India is also working on finding an external market for exporting supersonic cruise missiles. The missile has been largely domesticated by the DRDO under its project PJ-10.

Since the beginning of the joint venture between India and Russia, the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile has become a powerful weapon for the three armed forces, using it for a variety of roles. At the same time, last month, the Indian Navy successfully tested a naval version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in the Bay of Bengal. The missile was capable of flying enemy warships from a distance of 300 km. During the test, he was fired from INS Ranavijay and he hit the target in the blink of an eye.
