BrahMos Missile Launched Vertically from Indian Ship
The BrahMos Supersonic Cruise Missile was launched from a Naval Warship in the Bay of Bengal today. The DRDO said the launch from the mobile platform was successful and all mission objectives have been met.
This is the first time the missile was launched from a universal vertical launcher fitted in a new ship. All earlier launches of BrahMos missile were carried out from inclined launchers.
With this, the BrahMos missile development programme achieved a milestone as most present day warships are fitted with vertical launchers.
