Following the successful delivery of the first batch of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles to the Philippines Marine Corps, India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is setting its sights on an even larger order from the Philippine Army.

The BrahMos, a joint Indo-Russian venture, has garnered significant interest with its speed, precision, and long-range strike capabilities. The initial delivery to the Marines paves the way for potential expansion into the Philippine Army’s arsenal.

The Philippines Army is reportedly in the process of obtaining clearance for the acquisition of BrahMos missiles. DRDO is optimistic that discussions will commence later in 2024, potentially culminating in a finalized deal by next year. This timeline suggests deliveries could begin around 2027.

A larger BrahMos deal with the Philippine Army would solidify the growing strategic partnership between India and the Philippines. This collaboration not only strengthens the Philippines’ defense capabilities but also presents India with a significant export opportunity, showcasing its indigenous defense technology on the global stage.

The potential acquisition of BrahMos missiles by the Philippine Army signifies a growing focus on bolstering the country’s defense capabilities. This, coupled with India’s aspirations to become a major defense exporter, positions the two nations for a mutually beneficial partnership.
