BrahMos Aerospace developed BrahMos-A supersonic cruise missile which was scheduled to be fired from a Sukhoi-30 MKI towards a decommissioned naval ship by end of this month currently waits for approvals from the Lord Indra ( god of lightning, thunder, storms, rains) since the news coming from the test site is not so positive.
Monitoring team at the test site in the Bay of Bengal is witnessing severe bad weather condition in the area which could postpone already delayed first debut flight test of fully loaded BrahMos-A Cruise missile from a Sukhoi-30 MKI.
In series of test planned for BrahMos-A, the first test will be to take down a target in the middle of the ocean for that a decommissioned warships will be towed and will be placed in selected path and to collect enough trial data, both ocean and environment needs to be calm for few days for carrying out missile test in the region .
In the Second stage, BrahMos Aerospace plans to then move on to Air-to-Land flight trails once BrahMos-A clears AshM trials. If bad weather persists then trials will have to be postponed for next month or later if conditions don’t improve. BrahMos Aerospace will be in touch with ISRO and other weather monitoring agencies to look for ideal next launch window if the current month end launch window is missed.
