Big Weapon Milestone: Amid Border Stand-Off With China, India's BrahMos Missile Gets Combat Use Nod

Amidst the border stand-off with China, the BrahMos air launched cruise missile has received combat clearance. As per sources, BrahMos has received the fleet release clearance by the certifying agency. “The fleet release clearance certification has paved the way for the pilots of the Indian Air Force (IAF) squadrons to use the missile during combat missions,” BrahMos Corporation told India Today. The issuance of the fleet release clearance is the final step clearing the way for the IAF to deploy the missile in a combat mission, if deemed necessary. In other words, the BrahMos-A is now fully operational and war-ready. The Sukhoi-30MKI fighter aircraft was inducted at Thanjavur IAF airbase equipped with BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in January. The BrahMos-A is a supersonic land attack cruise missile capable of ranges in excess of 300 km.
