BrahMos with extended range tested

India's conventional precision-strike capabilities now have a longer reach. A new BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, with an extended range of 450 km, from the earlier 290 km, was successfully test fired from the integrated test range at Balasore off the Odisha coast on Saturday.
The land-attack version of the missile, which flies at the speed of Mach 2.8, was fired at “an electronic target“ at 11.30 am. The launch, executed from the mobile autonomous launcher deployed in full configuration, met all the test parameters, said defence scientists.
