Brahmos

  1. 1. WHICH IS THE WORLD’S FASTEST CRUISE MISSILE?<br />
  2. 2. BRAHMOS<br />A cruise missile is a guided missile that carries an explosive payload and uses a lifting wing and a propulsion system, usually a jet engine, to allow sustained flight<br />BRAHMOS is a supersonic cruise missile capable of being launched from multiple platforms based on land , sea , sub-sea and air against sea and land targets<br />
  3. 3. It is a joint venture between India’s (DRDO) and Russia’s NPOM by forming BrahmosAerospace Private Limited .<br />The missile is named after two rivers , the Brahmaputra and the Moskva<br />Travels at a speed of Mach 2.5 to 2.8 ( 3 times the speed of sound ) and have the capability of attacking surface targets as low as 10 meters in altitude.<br />Missile was tested for the Indian Army in the test range in Pokharan (Rajasthan) from 2004 to 2007 <br />Inducted into Army on June 21 , 2007<br />
  4. 4. Maximum range 290km<br />Maximum velocity Mach 2.5 – 2.8<br />Warhead 300kg<br />Weight 3000kg<br />Length 8.4m<br />Diameter 0.6m<br />Unit cost US$ 2.73 million<br />Engine two-stage integrated rocket/ramjet<br />TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS<br />
  5. 5. ADVANTAGES<br />Long Flight Range with supersonic speed all through flight<br />Shorter Flight Time leading to lower target dispersion and quicker engagement<br />Wide Range Of Flight Trajectories<br />‘Fire and Forget’ principle of operation<br />Higher destructive capability reinforced by the large Kinetic energy of impact<br />Greater Effectiveness against ship defences<br />
  6. 6. VARIANTS<br />Ship launched , Land Attacked<br />Ship launched , Anti-Ship <br />Land launched<br />Air Launched<br />Land Launched to Air or Ship<br />Submarine Launched to Land and Ship<br />
  7. 7. BRAHMOS 2 is a hypersonic cruise missile that has been lab tested with a speed of 5.26 Mach making it the fastest missile in the world . <br />Expected to be ready by 2013-2014<br />BRAHMOS II<br />
  8. 8. THANK YOU<br />
