According to an Indian defense source, a highly-maneuverable version of a sea-based Brahmos supersonic cruise missile was successfully tested by the Indian Navy .
India has updated BrahMos missiles by installing the advanced satellite navigation systems from Russia’s Kh-555 and Kh-101 strategic long-range cruise missiles, adding GPS-GLONASS technology to the existing doppler-inertial platform.
The BrahMos missile has a range of 180 miles and can carry a conventional warhead of up to 660 lbs. It can effectively engage targets from an altitude as low as 30 feet and has a top speed of Mach 2.8. The Indian Air Force is planning to arm 40 Su-30MKI Flanker-H fighters with BrahMos missiles. Moreover, Russia and India recently agreed to develop hypersonic BrahMos 2 missile capable of flying at speeds of Mach 5-Mach 7.
