Software glitches resolved, BrahMos tested successfully in Pokharan

The Army version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile was tested successfully in the Pokharan field firing range this morning. A previous test of the same variant failed on January 21 as a result of a software glitch.

I am just speculating but is it possible that the upgraded Brahmos could be using the same DRDO developed KA band seeker as in AAD/PAD. It seems to have the right range, resolution and perhaps size.

to prasun

people like prasun k sengupta mislead people and most of time he is daydreaming he said

the cost of procuring the aircraft carrier comes to about US$2.1 billion, which is what any other foreign shipyard like Fincantieri or Navantia would charge. But having said that, non-Russian shipyards would have delivered such an aircraft carrier within four years of contract signature

french navantia charging australia $ 8 billion for building three aegis destroyers read this----->

world class ships at indian prices

the three 6,250-tonne destroyers, fitted with the hot-selling Aegis radar and fire control system, will set Australia back by Rs 32,000 crore (US $8 billion). At about Rs 11,000 crore per destroyer, that is almost three times the cost India is paying for its Kolkata-class destroyers
so whats wrong with gorshkov and mig29k and helicopters in 2.9 billion US dollars
what else can be cheaper than this

Brahmos has a range of 125 km. when it runs in between 10-15m. altitude.So it is inferior than chinese missile in terms of range

I shall wait for a comment from the Army chief or an army spokesperson. After what happened in the last test, where Mr. Pillai claimed success when the test was a failure, I am not sure i want to trust them this time. Let Gen. Deepak Kapoor come out with a statement.

I am not disputing that the test was successful, just am vary due to the events in the recent past

Mayuresh, and they are trustworthy? LOL. I would rather trust the actual makers.
