Upgraded BrahMos With 500-km Range Ready: CEO Of BrahMos Aerospace

  • The upgraded version of home-made BrahMos missile is ready, the CEO of BrahMos Aerospace Sudhir Kumar Mishra confirmed
  • The enhanced version of the supersonic cruise missile has a massive range of up to 500 km
  • Mishra also said that India is now the only country in the world to integrate long-range missiles onto fighter jets after the BrahMos missile was test-fired from a Sukhoi 30 aircraft of the Indian Air Force


    "India has successfully test-fired a vertical deep dive version of BrahMos, the world's fastest supersonic cruise missile, that can now change the dynamics of conventional warfare. The upgraded version of the missile with enhanced range of up to 500 km is also ready," he said.

    Mishra also said that India is now the only country in the world to integrate long-range missiles onto fighter jets after the BrahMos missile was test-fired from a Sukhoi 30 aircraft of the Indian Air Force. Earlier in May, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Friday successfully test-fired an indigenously-developed 500 kg class guided bomb from a Sukhoi combat jet at Pokhran in Rajasthan. The guided bomb achieved the desired range and hit the target with high precision.


    Earlier the testing of the missile was delayed due to Cyclone Fani. The IAF and DRDO are planning to testfire the air-launched version of the world's fastest supersonic cruise missile BrahMos from a Su-30MKI combat aircraft.

First prototype of Brahmos-NG to be ready by 2024

The five-metre-long, 50-centimetre-thick, and 1.5 ton Brahmod-NG is half the dimensions of the Brahmos missiles currently in service today with the Indian Air Force (IAF), Army, and the Navy.



The first prototype of the Brahmos-NG, a lighter sleeker variant of the Indo-Russian cruise missile, will be fielded in 2024.

A top official of the Brahmos Aerospace, the Indo-Russian joint venture company which manufactures the missile, told India Today TV that the missile was currently under development between NPO Mashinostroyeniya and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).


The NG or next generation will mark a quantum jump in the offensive abilities of the Indian armed forces.

The five-metre-long, 50-centimetre-thick, and 1.5 ton Brahmod-NG is half the dimensions of the Brahmos missiles currently in service today with the Indian Air Force (IAF), Army, and the Navy.

The Brahmos-NG’s significant weight and size reductions mean that it can be carried by many more platforms including the conventional submarines and the fighter aircraft.

It will, however, have the same speed, range and lethality of the first generation Brahmos which flies at three times the speed of sound.

The Su-30MKI which carries one Brahmos presently, carries one Brahmos-NG, will be able to carry five Brahmos-NGs. We can put it on the MiG-29 and on the indigenous LCA Tejas, Praveen Pathak, Chief General Manager (Marketing Promotions and Export) Brahmos Aerospace International Maritime at the Defence Show (IMDS), said.

The Indo-Russian Brahmos joint venture was formed in 1998 and is the oldest military joint venture between India and Russia.

According to reports, first prototype of the Brahmos-NG will be fielded in 2024. It will be a lighter sleeker variant of current BrahMos . But the range and firepower will remain same . A Su-30MKI will be able to carry 5 such missiles together! Tejas too will carry this.

MKI cannot carry 5 of these, 2-3 is feasible. 5 would make it a sluggish bull instead of a feline ballet dancer.

Tejas MK-2 can carry it only if center line store can support 1.5 tons of weight, this is not the case for Tejas now.

Tejas MK2 can carry 1.5 ton payload in the wing pylon. So, it can carry 2 Brahmos NG, 1 under each wing

Tejas mk1a will carry it. Mk1 can carry 1200 kg on inner wing pylon. In mk1a these will be strengthened to carry 1500kg.

Mwf /mk2 will be able to lift 6.5 ton so that may Carry 3 bramhos Ng simultaneously.

No, 3 brahmos is not possible, That will impose too much drag. We can have 2 Brahmos NG in inner wing pylons and a 1 ton fuel tank in centre. Flying 3 Brahmos without fuel tank will be suicide as the drag will reduce the range to very low number

Anyway mwf is 7-8 years away. By then we'll have 1000km bramhos in service. We would be able to hit most of our targets directly from the ground.

#Thailand in talks with #India to buy #BrahMoscruise missiles

.

In possibly the first sale of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles to another country, Thailand is in talks with India for their purchase, official sources said. A few other countries have also expressed interest in BrahMos but nothing has fructified yet.

“Negotiations are on. It may not happen this year, but most likely next year,” diplomatic sources said. While Thailand expressed interest in the missiles some time back, discussions picked pace after the visit of Royal Thai Navy Chief Admiral Ruddit to India in December last year.

As part of the expanding defence cooperation between the two countries, Thailand has made a request for repair and refurbishing their Dornier maritime patrol aircraft. “A joint team of Indian Navy, Bharat Electronics Limited and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited visited Thailand in mid-June to discuss the issue,” a defence source said.

In addition, Thailand Navy is looking to increase its capabilities and planning to induct more ships, defence sources said. In line with that, Indian Navy is exploring opportunities wherein India could help in ship design and has even “offered ship construction at the various defence public sector undertaking shipyards.” “The Indian Navy’s foreign cooperation initiatives include highlighting the capability of various Defence Public Sector Undertakings and Indian defence industry to friendly foreign navies,” the defence source stated.

Discussions are on to integrate Thailand into India’s coastal surveillance radar chain network which sources is “likely to be finalised by year end.” Several littoral states including Maldives and Seychelles have already been integrated into it.

#Trilateral_exercise

The inaugural India, Thailand and Singapore trilateral naval exercise announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address at Shangri-La dialogue in June 2018 is scheduled to be held later this year. Finalising the exercise got delayed and it got a push during the visit of Navy Chief Admiral Sunil Lanba to Thailand in April.

“India will host the first edition of the exercise in September this year,” diplomatic sources said adding Singapore will host the second edition and Thailand the third. The Initial Planning Conference to discuss the modalities of the exercise was held in May and the Final Planning Conference to finalise the details is scheduled to be held in August, officials said. Malaysia has also evinced interest in joining the exercise.

The two navies already conduct a Coordinated Patrol (CORPAT) and a new bilateral exercise is also in the works apart from the trilateral. As members of the Indian Ocean rim association (IORA) and Indian Ocean Naval symposium (IONS), navies of India and Thailand are working closely in the areas of disaster risk management, maritime security safety, information sharing and interoperability.

Defence ministry to decide on buying two BrahMos missile coastal batteries to tackle enemy warships
NEW DELHI: In his first Defence Acquisition Council (DAC) meeting, defence minister Rajnath Singh will decide on acquisition of weapon systems worth around Rs 12,000 crore including the procurement of two Brahmossupersonic cruise missile batteries for the Indian Navy.

The meeting is scheduled to be held on Thursday in which the defence minister is also going to take a call on several acquisitions from both India and abroad.

"The two mobile missile coastal batteries have to be acquired for the Navy. The Navy would deploy the Rs 1400 crore BrahMos supersonic cruise missile batteries on the Tatra trucks close to major cities from where it can destroy any incoming enemy warship in case it is posing any threat," government sources said.

The Navy wants to use the two BrahMos missile batteries to replace its existing systems which have become old and need replacement, they said.

In the DAC meeting, Singh is scheduled to take a call on the acquisition of 14 medium-lift choppers for the Indian Coast Guard which are likely to cost more than Rs 7,000 crore.
The meeting will also take a call on the deviations in the proposal for acquisition and manufacturing of AK-203 assault rifles between India and Russia.

The defence minister will also decide on the proposed procurement of two electronic warfare systems for deployment along the Pakistan and China borders.


Though the DAC is meeting for the first time since the new government was formed, the Narendra Modi administration has already spent around Rs 8500 crore for meeting the emergency requirement of the forces in its first 50 days.
Weapon systems such as the Spice 2000 stand off bombs and Spike anti-tank guided missiles from Israel, Strum Ataka air-launched ATGM and several other spare parts from Russia have been acquired under these powers by the Indian Air Force
