Bhubaneswar: India Sunday successfully tested the supersonic cruise missile 'BrahMos' from a defence base in Odisha, an official said.

The missile was launched around 10.45 a.m. from the Integrated Test Range in Chandipur in Balasore district, about 230 km from here. "It was an experimental repeat of a previous version," M.V.K.V. Prasad, director of the test range, told IANS.

The BrahMos has a range of 290 km and can carry a conventional warhead of up to 300 kg. It has a top speed of Mach 2.8, which is about three times faster than the US subsonic Tomahawk cruise missile. This makes BrahMos one of the fastest cruise missiles in the world.

The missile can be launched from submarines, ships and aircrafts. Sea and ground launched versions of the missile have been successfully tested and put into service with the army and navy.
