India successfully flight-tests supersonic cruise missile BrahMos
India successfully flight-tested its precision strike BrahMos weapon, which is called the world's fastest supersonic cruise missile from Pokhran test range, Rajasthan.
The missile flies almost three times the speed of sound at Mach 2.8 and has a range of 290 km.
The BrahMos missile has been jointly developed with Russia and is named for the rivers Brahmaputra and Moskva.
The range of the BrahMos missile, an Indo-Russia joint venture, can be extended up to 400 km as certain technical restrictions were lifted after India became a full member of the Missile Technology Control Regime or MTCR in 2016.
