    India today successfully carried out the maiden test firing of the over 290 km-range submarine-launched version of BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in the Bay of Bengal becoming the first country in the world to have this capability.

    The submarine-launched version of BrahMos was successfully test fired from an underwater pontoon near Visakhapatnam, said BrahMos CEO A Sivathanu Pillai.

    This is the first test firing of an underwater supersonic cruise missile anywhere in the world and the missile travelled its complete range of over 290 kms, he said.

    He said the performance of the missile during the test launch was “perfect”.

    Ship and ground-launched versions of the missile have been successfully tested and put into service with the Indian Army and the Navy.

    The maiden test of the submarine-launched version of BrahMos comes over a week after the indigenously built long-range subsonic cruise missile Nirbhay failed to hit its target in its first test.

    “BrahMos missile is fully ready for fitment in submarines in vertical launch configuration which will make the platform one of the most powerful weapon platforms in the world,” Pillai said.

    Defence Minister AK Antony congratulated DRDO scientists and Russian specialists along with officers of the Indian Navy associated with the project for successful test launch of missile from an underwater platform.

    Somehow I doubt it....

    Unless this missile hits Dawood Ibrahim's palace or Nawaz Sharrif's mansion or the KYSE, whatever this missile destroys will be cheaper than the missile itself. It would be like breaking a antique vase to kill a cockroach....(Hey, it can happen, well atleast in Tom & Jerry).

    Of course, if it hits Hafiz Saeed's Jihad factory (or his Harem) or The invincible Zaid Hamids council for infinite Jihad, well its a acceptable excuse.
