New Delhi: India yesterday successfully test-fired a highly manoeuvrable version of the 290-km range supersonic cruise missile BrahMos from a naval warship off the coast of Vishakhapatnam in Bay of Bengal. "At 9.30am, the missile blasted off in a pre-designated war scenario taking a 'double- manoeuvre in S-form' hitting the designated target ship just one metre above water line. The sheer velocity and power of hit made the missile rip through the ship's hull," BrahMos Aerospace CEO A. Sivathanu Pillai said here. This is the 34th launch of BrahMos after the successful October launch from INS Teg in the Arabian Sea.
