The BrahMos supersonic cruise which is an advanced "sea-to-sea variant" missile has an extended range of 350 to 400 km.
The missile was successfully tested from India's warship INS Visakhapatnam.
The BrahMos missile can fly at 2.8 Mach speed, almost three times the speed of sound.
It is the Indian Navy’s latest indigenously-built guided-missile destroyer.
India has deployed a number of BrahMos missiles in strategic locations.
In 2005, the Navy first time had deployed the BrahMos missile on its warships.
The latest missile can be launched either in a horizontal or vertical mode from a moving or stationary area and it can target sea and land targets successfully.
The BrahMos Aerospace is a joint venture between India and Russia, which produces supersonic cruise missiles which can be launched from land, submarines, aircraft and from ships.
