brahmos-647_061915020425

To start off with, I think many of us know that BRAHMOS is a stealth supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.

And when we go in a bit of detail about it, actually  It is a joint venture between Republic of India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russian Federation’s NPO Mashinostroeyenia who have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited.

It is the world’s fastest cruise missile in operation. The missile travels at speeds of Mach 2.8 to 3.0.

The land launched and ship-launched versions are already in service with air launched and submarine launched versions currently under testing phase.

A hypersonic version of the missile is also presently under development with speed of Mach 7 to boost aerial fast strike capability. It is expected to be ready for testing by 2017.

 

Here are the 10 facts one ‘must know” about BrahMos:-

  1. BrahMos is a joint venture of India and Russia who have together formed BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited. The missile is named after two rivers, the Brahmaputra of India and the Moskva of Russia.
  2. It’s claimed that BrahMos missiles are the fastest cruise missiles in operation in the world.
  3. They can travel close to the surface of the Earth which makes them very difficult to detect. BrahMos claims to have the capability of attacking surface targets by flying as low as 10 metres in altitude.
  4. The supersonic missile is capable of carrying conventional warheads of up to 300 kg for a range of 290 km.

brahmos-4-728

  1. BrahMos is four times faster and is twice as heavier than US’ Tomahawk missile. BrahMos has 32 times the initial kinetic energy of a Tomahawk missile.
  2. Brahmos was first test fired on June 12, 2001 from the Integrated Test Range (ITR), Chandipur in a vertical launch configuration.
  3. The two-stage missile, the first one being solid and the second one ramjet liquid propellant, has already been inducted into the Army and Navy, and the Air Force version is in final stage of trial for equipping the fierce force into the fighter jet SU-30 MKI.

As an Indian Army officer at 21, you’d be looking at a lifestyle that one cannot imagine in any other profession, so early in life. What compromises “Quality of Life”?

On the other hand is a job which offers you challenge, adventure, excitement, honour, prestige, self respect, whole some family life, safety and security for the family and to top it all the love, respect and esteem of our great India. In the somewhat chaotic social and economic conditions that prevail in our country, Armed forces’ life is an island of sanity and social order that is the envy of our countrymen.
