The Indian Army on Tuesday successfully launched BrahMos, a supersonic land attack cruise missile, at Car Nicobar Islands in a “top-attack” configuration, hitting a target in Bay Bengal. The launch is said to be the first in a series of various versions of the missile in the coming days, in a display of India’s tactical cruise missile triad.
The test by the Army comes over a month after the Naval version of BhahMos was successfully test fired from Indian Navy’s indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai, hitting a target in the Arabian Sea.
Posting a video of the test, the Pune-headquartered Southern Command of the Indian Army tweeted, “Indian Army successfully launched its BrahMos supersonic cruise missile on November 24 in a top-attack configuration, hitting a target in the Bay of Bengal with pin point accuracy.”
