BrahMos soars on the back of Sukhoi

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited's (HAL) Nashik division created history when it conducted a test flight of a 2,500-kg supersonic BrahMos missile integrated with a Sukhoi SU-30 MKI aircraft at its airport here.
The first carriage flight of Su-30 MKI aircraft with BrahMos missile went up at 2.30 pm and was in the air for 45 minutes.
The successful integration of BrahMos on Su-30 MKI aircraft has become “a lethal weapon delivery platform“ for the Indian Air Force. Sudhir Kumar Mishra, the CEO and MD of BAPL, which has developed the missile, claimed this was the first time anywhere in the world that such a heavyweight supersonic cruise missile has been integrated with a fighter aircraft. “The world did not believe we could do it. Thanks to the vision of late President APJ Abdul Kalam that we could achieve this today . History has been made,“ he added.
