BrahMos missile batteries to be deployed strategically to tackle maritime threats from China, Pakistan

The Indian Navy would deploy its recently-approved BrahMos supersonic cruise missile-equipped mobile coastal batteries at strategic locations across the maritime zone to neutralise threats from both east or the west, former Navy Chief Vice Admiral Satish N Ghormade said on Saturday.

The mobile coastal missile batteries were cleared by the Defence Ministry recently and a contract was signed with the BrahMos Aerospace corporation on March 30 in this regard.

In an interaction with ANI, a day after his superannuation, Ghormade said, “We will be able to deploy the Next Gen Mobile Missile Coastal Batteries at strategic locations so that any threat from the east or west could be monitored and neutralized. The BrahMos-Equipped Maritime Mobile Coastal Batteries is an indigenous joint venture. This provides us with two capabilities; land attack and anti-ship, both are extremely essential to the maritime security of the nation.”

Notably, the delivery of BrahMos missile batteries is scheduled to commence in 2027.

These systems will be equipped with supersonic BrahMos Missiles and will significantly enhance the multi-directional maritime strike capability of the Indian Navy.

The BAPL is a Joint Venture between India and Russia making crucial contributions to augment the new generation of Surface-to-Surface missiles with enhanced ranges.

This contract is going to give a further boost to the indigenous production of the critical weapon system and ammunition with the active participation of indigenous industries. This project will generate employment of more than 90,000 man-days over a period of four years. (ANI)
