IAF carries out second test of Brahmos fired from Su-30

Published on :

New Delhi, May 22 (IANS) The Indian Air Force on Wednesday carried out second test of air-launch version of supersonic cruise missile which was fired from a Sukhoi30 MKI fighter jet.

The IAF said in a statement that the missile followed the planned trajectory and directly hit the target.

The Indian naval vessels tracked the missile tested on a sea target. The first test of Brahmos fired from Su-30 was carried out on November 22, 2017.

The IAF said that integration of the missile, an Indo-Russian joint production, was a complex task and required several modifications on the aircraft. The IAF carried out software modifications while Hindustan Aeronautics Limited made the mechanical and electrical changes.

The air-launch version of Brahmos is a 2.5-ton cruise missile with a range of 300 km.

With the success, IAF can engage long-range targets on land and at sea in all-weather, day-or-night conditions.
