The new BrahMos NG, supersonic cruise missile model is being displayed at the ongoing air show on a Tejas model. The BrahMos-NG is confirmed for fitment on both Tejas Mk1A and Tejas Mk2 variants and the new lighter weight missile features numerous advances in its stealth and seeker technology.
Two BrahMos-NG supersonic cruise missiles can be carried on the Tejas on its outboard wing pylons.
Company officials at the show tell Daily News, that the BrahMos, will dramatically upgrade the combat capability of the Tejas LCA, providing it with a deep-strike supersonic attack capability against high value targets.
The high speed of BrahMos-NG coupled with its advanced seekers, which provide multi-target capability, will make it a lethal stand-off weapon.
India started the BrahMos joint venture with the inking of the Inter-Governmental Agreement with Russia in February 1998.
The BrahMos has already been integrated on SU-30 MKI aircraft for the airborne strike role.
