By PIB Delhi
The Indian Navy successfully demonstrated the accuracy of an extended-range land-attack BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai, on 5th March, 2022. The missile hit its intended target with pinpoint accuracy after traversing an extended range trajectory and performing complex manoeuvres.
Both Brahmos missile and INS Chennai are indigenously built and highlight the cutting-edge of Indian missile and ship-building prowess. They reinforce the Indian Navy’s contribution towards the Atma Nirbhar Bharat and Make in India endeavours.
This achievement establishes the Indian Navy’s ability to strike even deeper and influence land operations further away from the sea, when and where required.
