The air-launch version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully tested. On December 8, 2021, the missile was successfully test-fired from the Su-30 MK-I supersonic fighter aircraft at the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur, off the coast of Odisha.


The launch marks a significant step forward in the development of BrahMos. It allows for the serial manufacture of air-version BrahMos missiles.

Raksha Mantri Shri Rajnath Singh lauded the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO), BrahMos, Indian Air Force, and industry.

BrahMos is a joint venture between India's Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and Russia's Ministry of Defence (NPOM) to develop, manufacture, and market a supersonic cruise missile. BrahMos is a powerful offensive missile armament system already incorporated into the Armed Forces.
