At a time when India is evolving as a great power, economically as well as militarily, the country has gained immense expertise in designing and developing state-of-the-art defence systems.
This accomplishment has made it enter into an elite club of powerful nations at the global stage having the capability to build their own military platforms and systems. A perfect emblem of India’s growing military might is the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile system.
BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile has been indomitably scaling greater heights of success since its inception in 1998. The journey of BRAHMOS Joint Venture started on February 12, 1998 after the landmark signing of the Inter-Governmental Agreement at Moscow, by the Government of India and Government of Russia.
Since its historic maiden launch on June 12, 2001, the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile system has charted many milestones and strengthened all three services of the Indian Armed Forces.
The BRAHMOS Joint Venture (JV), a unique role-model between India’s Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russia’s JSC MIC NPO Mashinostroyeniya (NPOM), has today become a shining example of Indian-Russian military and technological cooperation. The supersonic cruise missile with its multi-role capability, universality and utmost lethality, has carved a distinct place for itself in the Indian Armed Forces.
The weapon stands out as the only universal supersonic cruise missile system in the whole world with the capability of neutralising land or sea-based targets.
