The supersonic cruise missile Brahmos was flight tested for the first time in land-to-land role today. This historic flight test was conducted in the
Western Test Range (Rajasthan) at 1230 hrs .
The test flight was witnessed by the Scientific Advisor to Defence Minister Shri M Natarajan, GOC-in-C, Western Command and Army Chief Designate, Lt
Gen JJ Singh and other senior officers from the Army and Navy.
From among a group of identified targets (built up), the mission team chose a target and the missile came dead on target destroying the built up
target. The senior officers flew over the destroyed target immediately thereafter signaling a total success of Brahmos in its capability of taking on
land targets from land platform.
