The Defence Ministry mentioned that it is a major achievement for India since the missile hit its target with absolute accuracy.

Additionally, India is also working on the new air-launched version of the BrahMos Supersonic that has the capability to strike enemy targets at more than 800 kilometers.

Earlier, after being released from a Su-30MKI combat aircraft, its maximum capacity was to hit targets as far as 300 kilometers.
