    BrahMos missile successfully fired in salvo mode

    Further boosting Navy's firepower, the 290km-range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was successfully fired from a naval warship INS Trikand in salvo mode in the Arabian Sea.

    "For the first time, the BrahMos cruise missile was fired in salvo mode off the Russian-built warship off the coast of Karnataka with an interval of three seconds off the coast of Goa," a DRDO official said here.

    After the successful test last week, eight cruise missiles could be fired in salvo mode in future, the official said. The two-stage missile, the first one being solid and the second one ramjet liquid propellant, has already been inducted into the Army and Navy, and the Air Force version is in final stage of trial, a defence official said.

    While induction of the first version of Brahmos missile system in the Indian Navy commenced from 2005 with INS Rajput, it is now fully operational with two regiments of the Army. The Army has so far placed orders for the Brahmos missile to be deployed by three regiments and two of them have already been inducted operationally.

    The Defence Ministry has also given a go-ahead to Army to induct a third regiment equipped with the missile system to be deployed in the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh. Brahmos Aerospace, an Indo-Russian joint venture company, is also working to develop the air as well as the submarine launch version of the missile system and work on the project is in progress.

    lol, yeah it can happen, if the reactor room is hit and reactor coolants leaks it will result in chain reaction. Too hot to handle.

    Russia has so many more Long Range Cruise Missiles, so they dont need Brahmos....

    Sympathetic detonation does not occur to Nuclear cores. For a nuclear chain reaction to initiate, first an implosion needs to occur by inward directed conventional explosives.

    Breaching the nuke reactor will only have radioactive fallout, not a nuke explosion.

    Salvo mode! So basically 2 subs with BrahMos VLS and SeaHakeMod4/Varunastra torpedoes can take out an entire CBG and its submarine escorts in under a minute!

    Carrier BG is their if we launch attack and take out first shipwith air defence then all of them in network centric will fall like house of cards. AC might take 4-5 hits to sink.

    Imo brahmos should still try to be incorporated with p8i, it would be a deadly combination

    OK fired from what platform? Imo p8i with warships armed with BrahMos is ideal to
    Take out carrier group and any escorts.

    I was talking about 2x Arihant class SSGN or AIP+VLS SSK firing Brahmos & SeaHakeMod4/Varunastra torpedoes can take out an entire CBG+Sub escort.

    Too bad Russians never modified kilos to launch brahmos.
