Nagpur: Following a recent order from the Philippines, India is in discussions to export BrahMos missiles to as many as eight nations. According to Atul Rane, CEO and MD of BrahMos Aerospace, an Indo-Russian joint venture, these are friendly nations that are situated in South East Asia, the Middle East, and even Africa, according to TOI.

According to him, there is a need in these countries for all variants, including those that are launched from land, ships, and aircraft.

Rane stated the BrahMos Aerospace plant in Nagpur is very significant while speaking at AXIS 2023, an event at the Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT), where he served as the chief guest. The missiles’ airborne version is manufactured in Nagpur.

The new generation (NG) missile, a lighter type, is planned to begin flight trials by the end of the year, according to Rane, and production is anticipated to begin by the end of 2025 or by 2026, depending on the demand of the customers.

The New Generation version will weigh less than half as little as the original BrahMos. The quantity of missiles that can be carried will rise as it is decreased. It can only currently be transported by the Su-30 aircraft. According to him, there are plans to also fit the Tejas in.

On the naval front, the BrahMos has been installed on 10 ships, and orders have been given for 13 more. The ultimate goal, according to him, is to put the missile on every Indian military ship.

In reference to the hypersonic version, he stated that China, Russia, the United States, and India are all involved in its development. India is making better development progress, despite the fact that there is still a long way to go, according to Rane. It would be premature to make a comment, though. Even the cost plays a significant role in the development.

The percentage of indigenization was 13% in the beginning of 1998; today, it can reach 80%. He claimed that only India is in possession of a missile of the BrahMos calibre. This indicates that the majority of the missile, save for the e-engine, which is manufactured in Russia, is constructed in India.

Rane said that only India is the owner of the BrahMos, a unique cruise supersonic missile. He responded, “If asked, who is BrahMos’s competitor, I would say there is none at all.
