Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) on Wednesday successfully test fired the surface to surface BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in the Andaman and Nicobar islands.
The extended range missile testfiring was witnessed by Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari and other defence officials. The missile hit its target with pinpoint accuracy, the defence officials said.
The Air Chief Marshal was reviewing the operational preparedness of forces in the Andaman and Nicobar islands.
Earlier this month, the Indian Navy had successfully demonstrated the accuracy of an extended-range land-attack Brahmos supersonic cruise missile from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai.
BrahMos is a nuclear-capable missile that can be fired from land, surface and air.
