In a significant stride towards enhancing its air power capabilities, the Indian Air Force (IAF) is gearing up to Place orders for BrahMos-NG (Next Generation) Air-Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) once it clears Developmental Trials.

Pravin Pathak, Export Director of BrahMos Aerospace, has announced that the design of the BrahMos-NG has been finalized, and the manufacturing process is scheduled to commence by the end of 2023 or early next year.

One of the standout features of the BrahMos-NG ALCM is its versatility, as it is intended to be integrated into the IAF’s Su-30 and LCA-Tejas Mk1A fleet. The IAF’s plan to acquire around 400 units of the BrahMos-NG ALCM underscores its recognition of the weapon’s strategic value and potential to significantly enhance India’s air combat capabilities.

The development and production of the BrahMos-NG ALCM coincide with the upgrade of the BrahMos Aerospace facility in Lucknow. This facility has been modernized to enable the production of 80-100 units per year, a significant increase in manufacturing capacity. With these advancements, it is projected that the BrahMos-NG ALCM will enter full-scale production by late 2026, provided it successfully clears the developmental trials.

Drawing upon the success of its predecessor, the BrahMos-A ALCM, the BrahMos-NG boasts impressive specifications. With a range of 290 kilometers and a top speed of Mach 3.5, the missile is poised to provide the IAF with enhanced strategic reach and precision strike capabilities. The BrahMos-NG ALCM’s adaptability to different fighter jets is a strategic advantage, with the Su-30MKI capable of carrying three units, and the LCA-Tejas equipped to carry two.
