Indian Navy successfully test-fired the BrahMos land attack supersonic cruise missile in the Bay of Bengal, joining an elite club of navies to have capability to strike on land targets from sea.
The long-range missile was fired from guided missile frigate INS Teg on a target on land and it yielded desired results, a top navy official said.
The BrahMos Missile has been jointly developed by India and Russia, and its anti-ship variant has already been inducted into Indian Navy.
Navies of the US, Russia, Britain and China have similar strike capabilities.
Majority of the frontline ships of Indian Navy, like the Kolkata, Ranvir and Teg classes of ships, are capable of firing the land attack supersonic missile.
