BRAHMOS leads Indias defence export ambitions
BRAHMOS leads Indias defence export ambitions
Supersonic cruise missile BRAHMOS, designed and developed by India and Russia under a joint military-technological partnership venture, has edged out all other weapons of its genre to emerge as the worlds best, deadliest and most versatile tactical system of modern times.

As an unparalleled multi-role, multi-platform weapon having impeccable precision attack capability to annihilate high-value ground and sea-surface targets from large, stand-off ranges, BRAHMOS has strongly positioned itself as one of Indias most powerful, state-of-the-art force-multiplier asset. The tactical missile has been deployed in all three Services of Indian Armed Forces in the Navy (since 2005); in the Army (since 2007) and in the Air Force (air-launched version since 2020).

The BRAHMOS project started as a Joint Venture (JV) programme between Indias DRDO and Russias NPOM on February 12, 1998 with the signing of an inter-governmental agreement between New Delhi and Moscow. The subsequent formation of BrahMos Aerospace as the JV entity responsible for the design, development, production, marketing and delivery of the formidable BRAHMOS weapon system resulted in innumerable milestones.

Initially conceptualised as an anti-ship weapon primarily designed for launch from naval platforms, BRAHMOS subsequently established itself as a universal system, and validated its deployability onboard land and air platforms. Since its maiden successful test firing conducted on June 12, 2001, the supersonic cruise missile has been tested a record number of times to date, reinforcing its firepower, range, stealth, maneuverability and precision attack capability.

The unique BRAHMOS has thus incredibly evolved and fortified its supremacy as the worlds best deterrent weapon having across-the-spectrum warfare capability in the 21st century.

The tactical missile has been successfully developed, tested and inducted in land-to-land, land-to-sea, sea-to-land, sea-to-sea, air-to-land and air-to-sea configurations in the Indian Armed Forces. An underwater variant of the weapon has also been successfully tested and proved its mettle to be deployed on conventional attack submarines.

BrahMos Aerospace, in close coordination with DRDO and NPOM, has scaled newer heights in design, indigenisation, research and innovation efforts involving the BRAHMOS Weapon System.

The India-Russia JV programme achieved a major breakthrough in the defence exports front when BrahMos Aerospace on January 28, 2022 signed a contract with the Republic of Philippines to supply BRAHMOS shore-based anti-ship missile system to the Philippine Navy.

After developing and delivering the powerful BRAHMOS to the Indian Armed Forces, we are now going to deliver it to a responsible, friendly nation. Exporting the missile to a foreign customer country has become a hallmark achievement for us. Our Mind-to-Market strategy has produced this excellent result. BrahMos, the flag-bearer of Make-In-India, is now going to Make-for-the-World, says Atul D Rane, DG (BrahMos, DRDO) and CEO & MD of BrahMos Aerospace.

This major development has come at a crucial time when India, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, aims to position itself as a top-notch military manufacturer and exporter in the world. New Delhi has set an ambitious target of a total turnover of worth $25 billion in defence manufacturing in the next five years which includes an export target of $5 billion worth of military hardware in the international market.

And BRAHMOS being the first full-scale major weapon system of India achieving the export breakthrough, has provided the much-awaited impetus to boost the countrys status as a net exporter of weapons in the coming years.

The India-Russia JV entity, meanwhile, has initiated work to design and develop more powerful, versatile, futuristic variants of existing BRAHMOS, including BRAHMOS-NG (Next-Generation) stealth weapon and BRAHMOS-II (K) hypersonic weapon, in order to retain and consolidate its leadership position among worldwide cruise missile makers.
