India to Vet Air-Fired Cruise Missile
The missile and two Russian-built Su-30 combat aircraft are undergoing modifications to ensure their interoperability, Alexander Maksichev, Russian executive director for Brahmos Aerospace, said on Sunday.
The supersonic jet would allow the developmental missile to use a smaller propulsion system than older counterparts, company head Sivathanu Pillai added.
India and Russia have collaborated in preparing the cruise missile. Certain versions of the weapon can deliver a nuclear payload, according to earlier reporting.
