Extended Range BrahMos Cruise Missile Test Launched

On March 11, India successfully tested an extended range variant of its BrahMos cruise missile off its eastern coast on the Bay of Bengal. The standard BrahMos has a range of 290 km, but the new variant pushes the range beyond 400 km. The missile is capable of carrying a 300 kg high explosive warhead or submunitions and is the product of development and design collaboration between India and Russia.  India is currently looking to field air-launched, submarine-launched, and ship-based versions of the BrahMos in addition to the ground-based model currently in service.
