In a major milestone, the Brahmos supersonic cruise missile was on Wednesday successfully test fired for the first time from a Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet off the Bay of Bengal.

The air force version of 8.4-meter BrahMos missile, fastest in the world, has a strike range of 290 km and carries a conventional warhead up to 300 kg. BrahMos is a mutual endeavor between the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India and NPOM of Russian Federation.

India has offered the BrahMos missile system to Vietnam, which like India is threatened by China's growing military assertiveness. Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and BrahMos Aerospace have been working on integrating the BrahMos missiles on two Sukhois for flight trials, which kicked off in June 2016.

The payload of the missile had to be reduced because of the moving platform from which the missiles were to be launched, and Brahmos took this task into account.
