The BrahMos missile has a range of 290 km and can travel at speeds of up to Mach 3, making it one of the fastest cruise missiles in the world. It can be launched from multiple platforms, including land, sea, and air, and can carry a variety of warheads, including conventional and nuclear.

The development of the BrahMos missile began in 1998, and the missile was first test-fired in 2001. Since then, the missile has undergone several upgrades and improvements, including the development of a hypersonic version of the missile.

The BrahMos missile has been inducted into the Indian Army, Navy, and Air Force, and it is considered to be a major strategic asset for India’s defence forces. The missile has also been exported to several countries, including the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
