So the Official range now is 400 km.A press statement from the Indian Army said, “On November 24, approximately 1003 hours IST, Indian Army successfully test fired a BrahMos Land Attack Cruise Missile using a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL) from Car Nicobar Islands against a designated target located at a range of approximately 200 kilometers in Bay of Bengal. During this successful test launch, the missile demonstrated the weapon’s unmatched lethal ability and formidable precision strike capability.”
The release added, “The land attack version of BrahMos with capability of cruising at 2.8 Mach speed, is the cutting edge of the Indian Army since 2007. The present Block III version of the missile has successfully executed four operational launches in the past. With the upgraded capability the missile can hit targets at a range of upto 400 Km with precision. The launch marks the achievement of a critical milestone in enhancing India’s capability of engaging enemy’s vitally important targets in depth areas. The launch was witnessed by various dignitaries who lauded the commendable effort demonstrated during the successful execution of the launch.”
I love it when the missile re-orients itself towards the target.......
Which is what I always wondered, is there a particular advantage for a hard orientation as opposed to a gradual one. Is it because the missile can go supersonic ASAP? any experts.I love it when the missile re-orients itself towards the target.......

How much percent is the total indigenous content?HAL produces the AL-31FP from the raw material stage at Koraput .
The HPT, LPT blades and rotor discs and LPC and HPC blades and discs including the guide vanes, combustor and accessory gearbox are all made from raw materials . The HPT single crystal turbines are manufactured by investment casting method.
Investment casting produces castings of excellent surface finish and dimensional accuracy .

High pressure turbine rotor disc is manufactured from Nimonic alloys. Nimonic alloy is used for very high temp applications where structural rigidity and mechanical properties like tensile strength, creep resistance, fatigue life needs to be maintained . This alloy has 50 + percent of Nickel along with Chromium cobalt titanium Manganese.

Microstrip patch antenna element with 1Ghz bandwidth in C band . But they need to move up...to ring/loop or slotted waveguide and then notch radiators fast.
I know. I think they used GaN for patch one first since they are the easiest to built. While the GaAs based Vivaldi one are going into RWR and other EW system first. Imagine a GaN base radar using Vivaldi antenna. bandwidth would be no less than 5 Ghz. LPI and ECCM capabilities will be off the charts. We sure are moving in right direction.
I think it struck Trak Island rather than Taking off from there. Earlier Missile impact can be seen.A Land based Brahmos missile of the IAF was successfully tested today from Trak island . It hit its target with precision . This will pave the way for the operationalisation of the 450 km ranged Brahmos in IAF service .
The Brahmos lacm replaced the Prithvi 2 missile squadrons in IAF service .
