India-Philippines signed agreement for BrahMos missile supply

 


India and the Philippines have signed an agreement to facilitate deals on military hardware, including the potential supply of BrahMos cruise missiles. 

The Philippines will be the first country to receive the Indian-made BrahMos cruise missile, considered the world’s fastest supersonic missile. Both the countries have signed an agreement for a potential supply of the weapon, which would boost the Philippines’ coastal defence. Brahmos is jointly developed by India and Russia. It is a medium-range supersonic (faster than the speed of sound) missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, fighter jets, or land. Last year this missile was successfully tested from the Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter aircraft. 

The earliest versions of the supersonic cruise missiles have been in service with the Indian Navy and the Indian Army since 2005 and 2007 respectively. 

It is the world's fastest anti-ship cruise missile in operation. The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service. An air-launched variant of BrahMos appeared in 2012 and entered service in 2019. A hypersonic version of the missile, BrahMos-II, is also presently under development with a speed of Mach 7–8 to boost aerial fast strike capability. It was expected to be ready for testing by 2020.

India wanted the BrahMos to be based on a mid-range cruise missile like the P-700 Granit. Its propulsion is based on the Russian missile, and missile guidance has been developed by BrahMos Aerospace. The missile is expected to reach a total order of US$13 billion.
