India successfully tests BrahMos anti-ship supersonic cruise missile

India has announced that it has successfully tested the anti-ship variant of the BrahMos ramjet supersonic cruise missile.

The Andaman and Nicobar Command (ANC) of the Indian Armed Forces made the following statement after the test: "The Indian Navy and ANC yet again demonstrate combat readiness by successfully destroying target at sea through anti-ship version of BrahMos at Andaman and Nicobar Islands on 27 April 2022."

In addition, the ANC shared a video showing the BrahMos missile being fired from a land launcher towards the sea.

The BrahMos missile, named after India's Brahmaputra River and Russia's Moscow River, was jointly developed by the two countries.

The Indian army announced on March 24 that it had successfully tested a nuclear-capable, surface-to-surface supersonic BrahMos cruise missile, and reported that the missile tested in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands had hit the designated target.

BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.
