BrahMos is a medium-range supersonic cruise missile developed by BrahMos Aerospace, the joint venture between the DRDO of India and NPO Mashinostroeyenia of Russia. Its name is derived from two rivers ? Brahmaputra in India and the Moskva in Russia. It is the world?s fastest supersonic missile. It can be launched from submarine, ships, aircraft and land.
The BrahMos failed to take off during a test firing at the Odisha coast recently. The cause may be because of the technical glitches in the propulsion system. The exact reason is going to be examined by a team of scientists from the DRDO and the BrahMos aerospace corporation.
