BrahMos Aerospace has undertaken the task of developing multiple systems and subsystems that may be utilized in the future development of the Hypersonic BrahMos-2 cruise missile. The Hypersonic BrahMos-2 will draw inspiration from Russia’s 3M22 Tsirkon anti-ship hypersonic cruise missile, specifically incorporating elements of its scramjet engine technology.

In a recent revelation, it was disclosed that the accidental firing of a BrahMos combat missile into Pakistan last year resulted in a loss of Rs 24 crore to the Indian state exchequer. The Chief of BrahMos Aerospace has already confirmed that the cost of the Hypersonic BrahMos-2 will be double that of the standard BrahMos missile. This places it in a price range comparable to some of the domestically produced nuclear-capable Intermediate-Range Ballistic Missiles (IRBMs).

BrahMos Aerospace aims to initiate the BrahMos-2 program once a significant portion of the building blocks is manufactured locally, thereby ensuring a high indigenous content. This approach contrasts with the original BrahMos missile, which began with a meagre 13% indigenous content and took over two decades to reach a 75% indigenous capability. By prioritizing a higher indigenous content from the outset, BrahMos Aerospace seeks to streamline the development process and achieve cost efficiency for the Hypersonic BrahMos-2.

This emphasis on indigenous production capabilities aligns with India’s broader objective of self-reliance and strengthening its domestic defence industry. The successful implementation of the BrahMos-2 program will not only enhance India’s technological prowess but also promote the nation’s defence exports, establishing it as a key player in the global defence market.
