Indian Air Force (IAF) today successfully fired the Extended Range Version of Brahmos Air Launched missile against a Ship Target from a SU-30MKI fighter aircraft.

The missile achieved the desired mission objectives in the Bay of Bengal region.   

With this, India’s IAF has achieved a significant capability boost to carry out precision strikes from SU-30MKI aircraft against land/sea targets over very long ranges.  

The extended range capability of the missile coupled with the high performance of the SU-30MKI aircraft gives the IAF a strategic reach and allows it to dominate the future battle fields.   

This achievement is significant in view of recent episodes of border stand-offs with China.
