India on Thursday successfully test-fired a new version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile off the coast of Odisha in Balasore, defence sources said.
Earlier on January 11, the country had successfully test-fired BrahMos Supersonic Cruise missile from the Indian Navy's INS Visakhapatnam warship.
The missile is a joint venture between India and Russia where Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) represents the Indian side.
The missile was tested from INS Visakhapatnam which is the latest warship of the Indian Navy inducted recently.
BrahMos is the main weapon system of the Indian Navy warships and has been deployed on almost all of its surface platforms.
An underwater version is also being developed which will not only be used by the submarines of India but will also be offered for export to friendly foreign nations.
