The BrahMos is a medium-range ramjet supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or land platforms.

It was jointly developed by the Russian Federation's NPO Mashinostroyeniya and India's Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). The land-launched and ship-launched versions are already in service.

The Brahmos missile has a flight range of up to 290-km with supersonic speed all through the flight, leading to shorter flight time, consequently ensuring lower dispersion of targets, quicker engagement time, and non-interception by any known weapon system in the world.

Its cruising altitude could be up to 15 km and its terminal altitude is as low as 10 meters. The missile carries a conventional warhead weighing 200 to 300 kg.
