India tests 450-km range BrahMos from Sukhoi jet

In a demonstration of deadly precision strike capability from long stand-off distances, India successfully tested the extended range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet in the Bay of Bengal..

“This is the first time the new BrahMos missile with a strike range of over 450-km (original range 290-km) has been tested from the air. The Sukhoi, with a combat radius of almost 1,500-km without mid-air refuelling, combined with the 450-km range BrahMos missile is a formidable weapons package,” a senior defence official said.
