Sources said that the new version of the Shaurya missile could easily destroy the target at a distance of 600 km. Successful testing of Shaurya missiles will further strengthen India's missile system. This missile will be light and easy to operate.
Earlier on Wednesday, India successfully tested a BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. This missile is capable of easily destroying targets at a distance of more than 400 km. DRDO successfully tested the missile under the PJ-10 project at Balasore in Orissa. This missile was launched with an indigenous booster.
This was the second successful test of the improved version of the BrahMos supersonic missile, equipped with home-developed airframes and boosters. Dr. Satish Reddy, Chairman, DRDO, congratulated the team of scientists on the successful test of the missile and said that the success of the test would inspire them to add more indigenous equipment to the supersonic missile.
