Sukhoi does demo flight with BrahMos missile

By Oneindia Staff Writer

Bengaluru, June 25: Supersonic cruise missile had its maiden demonstration flight on board Sukhoi today.

According to BrahMosAerospace officials, the missile's successful integration on Su-30MKI was demonstrated from HAL's Nasik unit.

The officials termed the test as major fillip to the BrahMos air-launched flight test programme.


Today's test paves way to test firing the 2.5-tonne air-to-ground missile in the next couple of months.

Integration of BrahMos with the Su-30MKI will render the weapon a multi-platform capability while making the Indian Air Force the only air force in the world in procession of a supersonic cruise missile system.

"The flight trial has been keenly observed by several other nations in the world in possession of the Su-30 strike fighter who are looking towards acquiring a lethal weapon system for the Russian-made warplanes," says a BrahMos official.

The significant flight was witnessed by HAL Chairman T S Raju and BrahMos CEO S K Mishra.
