This is the second missile test in less than a fortnight. Earlier country's premier defence research agency DRDO successfully test-fired BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from Navy’s indigenously-built stealth destroyer INS Chennai. 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 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, read a statement issued by DRDO on Twitter.
