The Grey Eagle had explicitly stated that
Indian Navy , HAL and ADA are jointly working together on the Two Engine Deck Based Fighter (TEDBF). And in his opinion, the indigenous TEDBF is likely to be the future of Indian Naval Aviation.

So we have the Navy backing TEDBF to the hilt.

Actually it's a huge shock to Russian dalals who were expecting more mig29 k infact they even sabotaged the IAC 1 lifts.

Brahmos has left a big gaping hole in the stern portion of hull of this Godavari class .

For ships with higher displacement, Brahmos may not sink the ship with a single hit, but it will surely be a mission kill.

A close-up . There will be huge internal damage to the superstructure. The structural integrity of the hull is weakened . Several fires of severe intensities will be raging inside the hit portion of the ship.

I don't understand the point of this sort of "testing". Its accuracy has already been proven... if you launch, it will hit!

Why not try shooting out down to before reaching target. That way we'll know what both Brahmos & Barak8 will actually perform in real action.

I had always wanted to see a Brahmos hitting a maneuvering mobile target .

Like the ship is zig zagging and Brahmos hits it right at the centre.

Between, newer variants of Brahmos have impact selection point feature. Meaning you can program the missile to strike a particular portion of the ship so as to inflict maximum damage.


They are testing out some new features and mods with this test. It's not a vanilla user test or combat readiness test. That test had already been carried out on 18 th Oct.

I reckon this test tests out the extended range and the larger waypoint selection feature. PS- something's new here. They don't just test a Brahmos like they test the Styx or other ashms .

Maybe they have stimulated a Barak interception by placing a Kolkata class in proximity to the hit frigate. Barak-8 are area defense ships and can also provide protection and organic cover to a taskforce from quite some distance away.


The Israelis had tested the Barak-8 against a live Onyx missile sourced or accuired through various means from Hezbollah . Barak-8 was able to hit it successfully. But we have come a long way since then.
This is Brahmos 4.0.

I have the same thought ...why don't India test barack8 agnaist brahmos....then only we will know capability of brahmos and Barak 8..…
Will brahmos beat an capable air defence
Will barak8 defend agnaist a supersonic cruise missile
Bdw I asked someone ...he says brahmos is not a over hyped missile. It is difficult to shoot it down......but with a 3 tier missile defence system..... brahmos can be shoot down...

Now imagine hitting a warship's magazine with brahmos around starboard.

Bdw almost all eastern airbase s are protected with akash sam
Also one thing more India is not relaxed


So some new infos....from this article
1. Most of the missile s have a direct hit
2.drdo is developing akash prime which will be able to defeat target s at higher altitude location s too
3. Akash with a new seeker will defeat it's target in ease
4. Drdo has modified akash to defeat chineese j20s

Bdw akash prime is a new missile . Many of us thought akash 1s as akash prime might be akash ng

DRDO had experimented with various geometries of Explosively Formed Penetrator(EFP) warheads for Anti-Ship use. Its not known which missile was meant to use this. The DRDO's NASM-SR is the likely candidate. The Brahmos relies on its speed rather than warheads to take out a ship.
