India To Deploy Supersonic Cruise Missile 'Brahmos' regiment along China border
The move is to discourage any Chinese 'adventures' in the region !
The Indian government has allowed the Army to deploy ‘BrahMos’ supersonic cruise missiles along the Sino-Indian border in order to protect the South Asian country from Chinese aggression.
Indian defence sources said that the government recently cleared the fourth BrahMos regiment at a cost of more than INR 43,000 million. The regiment consists of around 100 missiles, five mobile autonomous launchers on 12×12 heavy-duty trucks and a mobile command post, among other hardware and software.
Currently, BrahMos supersonic missiles, with steep dive capability and 290km range, are under test by the Indian Army. As the Indian steep-dive attack cruise missile can hit enemy targets hidden in the shadows of mountains, defence experts are of the opinion that New Delhi has sent a strong message to Beijing by allowing the Army to deploy such missiles along the India-China border.
