BrahMos Likely to Sign First Export Contract

: Feb 6, 2020 - : 2:00 pm

The first export contract for Russian-Indian BrahMos medium-range ramjet supersonic cruise missiles to a third country may be signed mid-year, according to BrahMos Chief General Manager Praveen Pathak.

BrahMos is currently carrying out active marketing for these powerful anti-ship missiles in Southeast Asia and the Middle East, in a total of 14 countries.
“A number of South East Asian countries are ready to buy our missiles,” he said.

According to reports, the Philippines may become the first country to purchase the BrahMos missiles. In December 2019, Philippine National Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said the country was interested in buying two BrahMos missile batteries and suggested that a contract could be signed in the first half of 2020.

India, assisted by Russia, has launched a family of supersonic cruise missiles to engage land and sea targets at a speed of 2.8M. Its basic versions for the Navy are based on the design of Onyx Russian supersonic anti-ship missiles. Variants of missiles have been created for land forces and the Air Force with extended range that are based on Russian anti-ship missiles.
