India on Tuesday successfully test-fired the anti-ship version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands territory. The test was the part of the trials conducted by the Indian Navy, sources told.

The test-firing of the anti-ship version of the BrahMos missile took place at 9:25 am. During the test held today around 925 AM, the DRDO-developed BrahMos supersonic cruise missile with a strike range of 300 km was launched from the Navy’s INS Ranvijay.

Sources said, “The BrahMos missile successfully hit its target ship near the Car Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal.”

Last week, India had tested a land-attack version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The supersonic cruise missile was test-fired at 10 am and it successfully hit its target, which was on another island.

The test was conducted by the Indian Army which has many regiments of the DRDO-developed missile system. According to the sources, the strike range of the BrahMos missile has now been enhanced to over 400 km.

The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile is the world’s fastest operational system in its class. Recently the DRDO had extended the range of the missile system from the existing 298 km to around 450 km.
