Indian Army successfully test-fires BRAHMOS land-attack missilePTI , (May 02, 2017)
NEW DELHI (PTI): The Indian Army on Tuesday successfully test fired an advanced version of BRAHMOS land-attack cruise missile in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, revalidating the weapon's strike capability.
The land-to-land configuration of BRAHMOS missile was launched from a mobile autonomous launcher (MAL).
The test firing of the block III version of the missile demonstrated the weapon's unmatched lethality of hitting the centre of a designated target with "bull's eye" precision, a senior army officer said.
He said the supersonic cruise missile successfully hit the land-based target with desired precision in a "top attack configuration", meeting all flight parameters in a copybook manner.
The test firing involved high level and complex manoeuvering by the missile, said the official.
