New Delhi: Indian Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) has started a spate of testing, various versions of the supersonic BrahMos missile. On Tuesday, another test of the supersonic BrahMos missile was conducted in the Andaman-Nicobar Islands. The anti-destroyer missile launched from the warship INS Ranvijay, hit the target in the Bay of Bengal, with accuracy. The DRDO had tested the Army version of the BrahMos from the Andaman-Nicobar Islands, only last week.
The BrahMos was launched on Tuesday morning around 9.25 hours. This supersonic cruise missile with a range of 300 Kilometres sank a destroyer positioned in the Bay of Bengal. This is the second test of the anti-destroyer version of BrahMos missile, conducted by the Indian Navy. Before this, the advanced version of the anti-destroyer BrahMos missile was tested in the Arabian Sea.
India has started this spate of missile tests, given the rising tension with China, on the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh and the Pakistani acts of aggression on the Line of control. Three tests of BrahMos missile have been scheduled in the Andaman-Nicobar Islands and testing of army and naval versions has been completed. The air force version will be tested in the next week.
