In an article published by “The Times of India,” it has been revealed that the Indian Navy is preparing to conduct tests of Long-Range Land-Attack Cruise Missiles (LR-LACMs) from a Russian Kilo-class Electric-Diesel Conventional submarine. These LR-LACMs will be an advanced version derived from the sub-sonic Nirbhay Cruise missile program.
The LR-LACMs, which will be launched from torpedo tubes, are anticipated to have a range of 1500km. Once they enter production, they will be installed on all electric-diesel submarines within the Indian Navy’s fleet. While the exact date of the missile’s testing remains uncertain, it is expected to take place within the next 2-3 years.
In addition to the LR-LACMs, BrahMos Aerospace is also working on the development of the BrahMos-NG variant, a Mach 3.5 capable supersonic Submarine-Launched Cruise Missile (SLCM). This variant will be equipped with both a Vertical Launch System (VLS) for SLCMs and torpedo tube-launched SLCMs. It is intended to be utilized in India’s Project-75I and 76 Electric-Diesel Conventional Submarine programs along with Three Nuclear Powered Nuclear Attack submarines that are under development.
