New Video Shows BrahMos Anti-Ship Missile Launched From Navy's Destroyer

The Navy has released a video of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile being fired from the indigenously-built stealth destroyer. The missile, which was launched on Sunday from INS Chennai, hit its target in the Arabian Sea, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) had said.

The missile hit the target successfully with pin-point accuracy after performing high-level and extremely complex manoeuvres.

BrahMos as ''prime strike weapon'' will ensure the warship's invincibility by engaging naval surface targets at long ranges, thus making the destroyer another lethal platform of the Indian Navy.

"BRAHMOS, the supersonic cruise missile was successfully test fired today on 18th October 2020 from Indian Navy''s indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai, hitting a target in the Arabian Sea. The missile hit the target successfully with pin-point accuracy," the DRDO had said in a tweet.
