Brahmos Integration Work Commenced

Brahmos Integration Work Commenced 18 December, 2017

India has commenced integration work of Brahmos supersonic cruise missile on 40 Sukhoi combat aircraft following the successful test-firing of the missiles from a Sukhoi-30 combat jet on November 22. The Su-30MKI fleet will undergo structural modifications at the state-run aerospace major Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and the project is expected to be completed by 2020.

Brahmos ALCM weighing 2,5 ton is the heaviest weapon to be deployed on India’s Su-30 fighter aircraft modified by HAL to carry weapons. The missile flies almost three times the speed of sound at Mach 2.8 and has a range of 290 km.
