India on Tuesday test-fired an improved shipborne version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile intended for the country’s navy. Report informs citing TASS that the Indian Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) tweeted.

“An improved anti-ship version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was launched today from the destroyer Visakhapatnam. The missile hit its target accurately,” the department said.

The test-fire was carried out on the Indian west coast.

In early December, India successfully test-fired an aircraft version of BrahMos, which was launched from a Su-30MKI fighter jet at the Chandipur training ground in the eastern state of Odisha. The supersonic cruise missile is produced by the Russian-Indian joint venture BrahMos Aerospace. It was developed by the Russian NPO Mashinostroeniya and DRDO. Its first test-fire launch took place in 2001. Different versions of the missile are in service with all three types of the Indian Armed Forces: Air Force, Navy, and Ground Forces.
