So is this is the final confirmation
Too late now, I don't understand why can't MoD force DRDO and Army to shut up and let PRO MoD release statements only ? we saw this blunder during 26/11 too.. One organization for media interaction fer Godsake.They need to keep these tests quiet ;don't need to reveal any details to the press or public.
Yes, I hope the Brahmos 2 comes with a greater ranger because it is a problem using it against China. And, as far as I'm concerned, China does seem to be the bigger threat with his encricling policy of us.We have to realize one thing here,
We are wasting resources. BrahMos has a current range of 290Kms. Granted, that is because of MTCR, and granted, for a missile of its size, it should have more range-but we dont know that.
Considering its official range of 290kms, it is woefully inadequate-against China.
We are developing another subsonic CM with a 700km range. But the point is that BrahMos should have the operational flexibility to be deployed against China as well.
With a range of 300 kms, BrahMos is not useful for targeting anything deeper than Tibet. Since India is obviously mass producing these missiles, would it not have been better, that the stocks could also be pressed to service in the North East as well if the situation so demanded?
That i feel has been a major short-comming of those who made the decision to go for a JV with Russia for BrahMos. There are other means by which BrahMos could have been made with Russia, which would not have made MTCR regulations come in the picture.
Very quick missile, but very slow analysis... hehehehe.....
In the 72 hours and more since the test, India’s defence research establishment is still sure about the speed of its missile but is less than sure about the pace of deployment.
