Christopher said that the missile, which can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land, with the enhanced range was expected be tested around March 10.
The BrahMos is a short-range ramjet supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land. It is a joint venture between the Russian Federation's NPO Mashinostroeyenia and DRDO who have together formed BrahMos Aerospace.
It is based on the Russian P-800 Oniks cruise missile and other similar sea-skimming Russian cruise missile technology.
The name BrahMos is derived from the names of two rivers, the Brahmaputra of India and the Moskva of Russia.
