NEW DELHI: India will begin the export of ground systems for the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile in the next 10 days while the missiles of the system would be sent by March this year, DRDO chairman Dr Samir V Kamat said on January 25.
The Defence Research and Development Organisation chairman, in an interview with ANI, said the first set of BrahMos missile systems is expected to reach Philippines by the end of March.
“The ground systems should be sent in the next 10 days, the missiles will hopefully go by March (to Philippines),” Kamat said.
BrahMos missiles export to the Philippines is the biggest ever defence export contract signed with any foreign country by India.
India had signed a deal with the Philippines worth $375 million in January 2022 for the supply of shore-based anti-ship variant of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile.
