The Indian Air Force (IAF) successfully delivered the first batch of indigenously developed BrahMos cruise missiles to the Philippines today. A C-17 Globemaster transport and a Civilian IL-76 aircraft operated by the Volga Dnepr Airlines landed at Clark Airbase, Philippines, carrying the missiles destined for the Philippine Marine Corps (PMC).

This delivery marks a significant milestone in the growing defense partnership between India and the Philippines. A deal valued at USD 375 million was signed in 2022, paving the way for India to supply the Philippines with a total of three BrahMos missile batteries.

The BrahMos missile, known for its supersonic speed and high precision, is expected to significantly enhance the Philippines’ defensive capabilities. The addition of these missiles will provide the PMC with a powerful deterrent against potential threats.

The India-Philippines defense cooperation, exemplified by the BrahMos deal, contributes to broader regional security in the Indo-Pacific. This collaboration demonstrates India’s commitment to partnering with Southeast Asian nations for a more stable and secure region.
