The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, an Indo-Russian joint venture, currently being built in India, will soon be delivered to Moscow.
The decision to supply the missiles to Russia comes after a meeting between Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin and Indian Defence Minister A.K. Antony in New Delhi.
India, has already inducted BrahMos into the Indian Army and Navy, and is urging Russia to induct the 290 kilometer range missile.
Rogozin, who was visiting the BrahMos complex in New Delhi, was briefed about the capabilities of the different variants of the Indo-Russian missile.
BrahMos was conceived as a joint venture between India and Russia in 1998. The air version of the BrahMos is still in the development stage.
Meanwhile, Antony has asked the Russians to keep to the delivery schedule of the aircraft carrier Vikramaditya which is now on sea trials after a refit at Russian shipyards and is now expected to reach India by July 2013.
