The next-generation BrahMos cruise missile, a joint project between Russia and India, is set for its first test flights by the end of 2025, according to Praveen Pathak, General Manager for Market Promotion & Export at BrahMos Aerospace.
Speaking at the World Defense Show in Riyadh, Pathak revealed that the development of BrahMos-NG is progressing smoothly, with production of flight test prototypes running parallel to the construction of a dedicated production plant. This facility is expected to begin operations in late 2025 or early 2026.
“First flight specimens of the new BrahMos-NG missile will be assembled for fight tests. They are planned to be assembled, and flight tests will start by the end of 2025,” Pathak said, expressing confidence in achieving this targeted timeline.
The BrahMos-NG is designed to be lighter and more maneuverable than its predecessor, while also boasting an extended range and improved performance. This next-generation missile is expected to significantly enhance the capabilities of the Indian and Russian armed forces.
