India’s deadly Brahmos missile makes enemy countries tremble.
The fame of Brahmos is now spreading to other countries as well. After the Philippines, Indonesia has also decided to buy the anti-ship version of BrahMos. A deal is likely to be reached between the two countries by the end of this year.
Talks between the two countries to buy super sonic cruise missiles are in the final stages. The deal would have been finalized by now if some internal issues of Indonesia had not interfered.
In 2018 itself, Indonesia expressed its desire to buy BrahMos missiles. The version of the BrahMos that Indonesia wants to buy can be fitted on ships. For this, a team of Brahmos Aerospace Joint Venture of India and Russia has visited Indonesia.
The speed of Brahmos is three times the speed of sound. Other East Asian countries Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam are also showing interest in buying it. BrahMos can be launched from a ship, land or submarine.
