Regional Power Wars in Asia

Regional Power Wars in Asia 9 October, 2019

According to Philippine media reports, the Philippines is considering supplying the BrahMos cruise missile. The missile was developed with a joint subsidiary of Russia and India. “Talks are now ongoing for Philippine Army’s BraHmos missile acquisition project with India,” a senior military official bared. The missile has a ramjet propulsion system and a range of up to 1,900 kilometres. Seeking to supply the land-based variant of the missile, the Philippines is gradually shifting its direction to internal and regional defence. With the handover of BrahMos, the military official said the Philippines would gain strength against local and offshore threats.

The Philippines, which wanted to strengthen regionally, wanted to procure the BrahMos missile after the dispute with China on the South China Sea.
