India enters elite club after ship-to-land BrahMos launch
India has entered elite club after ship-to-land BrahMos launchas as it has given huge boost to India Navy. “It was a successful test that achieved the desired results. Now we are in an elite club alongside advanced nations with the capability to hit deep land-based targets from the ships in deep sea,” said Navy spokesperson Capt. D.K. Sharma. This BrahMos version is a cruise missile that flies near the ground using terrain-following navigation systems fortified with an already-stored map of obstacles and ground elevation data. The Indian Navy is upgrading its weapons systems and platforms as part of a major modernisation programme.
