In a significant achievement, the BrahMos Missile Regiment of the Indian Army conducted a highly successful launch of the extended-range BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. The missile demonstrated its prowess by striking its intended target with pinpoint accuracy in the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. This remarkable event was attended by esteemed dignitaries, including the Hon’ble Lieutenant Governor, Devendra Kumar Joshi, and the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (GOC-in-C) of Southern Command, Pune.
The extended-range BrahMos missile, known as BrahMos-ER, boasts an impressive enhancement in its operational range compared to the older version.

The successful launch and pinpoint accuracy of the BrahMos-ER missile underscore India’s commitment to maintaining a strong and capable defense force. The strategic location of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands makes them a crucial part of India’s defense architecture, and the BrahMos missile’s extended range further strengthens the nation’s ability to safeguard its interests in the region.
The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile has earned a reputation for its speed, precision, and versatility, making it a formidable asset for the Indian armed forces. Its ability to engage both land and naval targets with remarkable accuracy makes it a vital component of India’s defense strategy.
