Here's the BrahMos-A air-launched supersonic cruise missile on one of two modified IAF Su-30 MKI fighters on display this year at Aero India. As I reported last month, the BrahMos is all set for its first flight in March. Not a moment too soon. The Indian Air Force, which placed an order for 216 BrahMos-A missiles in 2012 wants 42 of its Su-30s to deploy the BrahMos. HAL, involved in the modification of two airframes at its Nashik facility, will conduct the structural mod, reinforcement and additional avionics/software coding in cooperation with Sukhoi Design Bureau.
