The new extended range missile achieved the same precision strike capability as its predecessor. Minor hardware changes to carry more fuel and software updates allowed the missile to fly for a longer period, hence achieving an extended range. This could be done by India and Russia only after we became the latest member of the Missile Technology Control Regime in 2016. The most anticipated Missile for India is definitely the Brahmos Hypersonic Missile that will probably fly at 5 to 6 times the speed of sound. Research and Development work on the Hypersonic version is currently underway at Brahmos Aerospace. But before the Hypersonic Version, Brahmos Aerospace is getting ready to build a bigger, longer supersonic cruise missile whi...
