In a significant stride towards bolstering India’s defense capabilities and achieving self-reliance in defense manufacturing, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh recently announced the commencement of BrahMos missile production in Lucknow from 2026.

The BrahMos missile, known for its precision strike capabilities and supersonic speed, is a joint venture between India’s Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya. With the upcoming establishment of a BrahMos missile production plant in Lucknow, India aims to ramp up its production capacity significantly, thereby reducing its dependency on imports and bolstering its strategic defense capabilities.

One of the key highlights of this announcement is the inclusion of the BrahMos-NG (Next Generation) missile in the production plans. The BrahMos-NG, currently under development, is poised to be a lighter, faster, and more versatile variant of the original BrahMos missile.

While the BrahMos missile production in Lucknow is slated to commence from 2026, the inclusion of BrahMos-NG production, expected to begin in 2027, heralds a new era in India’s defense manufacturing capabilities.

The BrahMos-NG’s advanced features and capabilities are poised to enhance India’s deterrence capabilities and provide a decisive edge in modern warfare scenarios.
