    105* is a hell. Warships will think that Brahmos has overshot it but it will come back to hit it.

    That is an old trick Russians played since 1970s. The AI of modern air defense system won't take that as "overshot" at all.

    An insightful take on Brahmos by Saluteindia.org Mr Maroof Raza website on national defence.

    BRAHMOS MISSILE: INDIA’S PRIDE
    BrahMos Aerospace was formed as a result of an intergovernmental agreement between India and Russia on February 1998, for producing the BRAHMOS missiles as a joint venture entity between India’s DRDO and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyenia (NPOM). The first BRAHMOS missile was test-fired from the integrated test range at Chandipur in Orissa Coast on June 2001. Since then, the missile has been successfully tested from a variety of platforms, including land-based platforms and warships and is a part of the inventory of the Army, the Navy and land-based weapon complex for the Indian Air Force.

    BRAHMOS is a two-stage missile with a solid propellant booster engine as its first stage which brings it to supersonic speed and then gets separated. The liquid ramjet or the second stage then takes the missile closer to 3 Mach speed in cruise phase. Stealth technology and guidance system with advanced embedded software provides the missile with special features. The missile has a flight range of up to 290 km with supersonic speed all through the flight, leading to shorter flight time, consequently ensuring lower dispersion of targets, quicker engagement time and non-interception by any known weapon system in the world.
