India delivers first batch of BrahMos supersonic missiles to Philippines


  • The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile has a two-stage solid propellant booster engine as its first stage which takes it to supersonic speed.
  • The second stage is the liquid ramjet engine which takes it closer to Mach 3 (3 times the speed of sound) speed in the cruise phase.
  • The BrahMos missile is universal for multiple platforms and can be launched from air, land, and sea platforms.
  • The missile works on the 'Fire and Forget principle', meaning it doesn't require further guidance after launch, and it maintains a high supersonic throughout the flight.

Brahmos NG

  • The BrahMos-NG (Next Generation) will be a scaled-down variant of the current BrahMos missile.
  • Compared to the present BrahMos, it is anticipated to be 50% lighter, three meters smaller, and have the same 290-kilometer range and Mach 3.5 speed.
  • It would have advanced next generation stealth.
  • Greater effectiveness against ECCM.
  • higher versality in underwater combat applications.
  • launch readiness from Torpedo tube and vertical orientation
