India BrahMos-2 Hypersonic Missile: India and Russia are jointly making BrahMos-2 hypersonic missile. BrahMos is considered to be the fastest and deadliest weapon in the world. India’s first hypersonic missile may be based on the model of Russia’s Zircon missile. According to the information, BrahMos-2 missile will not be exported. In terms of performance and power, it will be very close to Russia’s Zircon missile.
Atul Rane, CEO of BrahMos Aerospace, recently said that we are capable of making hypersonic missiles. Within 5 to 6 years we will be successful in making the first hypersonic BrahMos missile.
BrahMos-2 strength and features
Scramjet engine will be installed in BrahMos-2 supersonic missile, which will increase its power significantly. It is being developed with better speed and glide capability. According to the information, the range of this missile will be 600 km. Its range can be increased to 1000 km. This missile will be an anti-ship and surface-to-surface hypersonic cruise missile. It can be launched from fighter jet, warship, submarine.
Radar will not even catch
These missiles of trickster neighbors like China and Pakistan can prove to be very lethal. Its speed will be so high that even radar will not catch it. It can change direction in the sky itself. The specialty of hypersonic weapon is that it is capable of flying even at low altitude. The supersonic version of BrahMos will be capable of flying at a speed of Mach 2.8.
Which Russian missile will match?
Atul Rane, CEO of Brahmos Aerospace, quoted by Russia’s TASS news agency, said that the hypersonic BrahMos-II will have the same performance characteristics as Russia’s Zircon missile. This means that BrahMos-2 will be almost at par with the Zircon missile in terms of performance. Russia has claimed that its hypersonic Zircon missile can fly nine times the speed of sound.
How long will it take to make now?
The supersonic version of Brahmos can fly at a speed of Mach 2.8, which is almost three times the speed of sound. Atul Rane also told that BrahMos-2 may take up to five-six years before the first flight test. BrahMos-II is being jointly developed by DRDO and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya.
