Exactly two months back, the country for the first time had tested the 290-km range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from underwater. The submarine-launched version of the missile was "successfully" tested near Visakhapatnam coast.
BrahMos flies at the speed of Mach 2.8 and is a strike weapon.
The Army will be inducting three versions of the multi-role BrahMos, having already placed orders worth Rs 9,484 crore, over the next two-three years.
Both Navy and IAF have also ordered BrahMos missiles worth Rs 3,568 crore and Rs 1,295 crore.
