  • India delivered the first batch of BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles to the Philippines

  • In January 2022, the Philippines concluded a $375-million deal with India for three batteries of a shore-based, anti-ship variant of the BrahMos becoming the first export customer for the joint venture missile between India and Russia.

  • The Philippines is acquiring the systems under the Horizon 2 of the Revised Armed Forces of the Philippines Modernisation Programme


  • BrahMos is a joint venture between the DRDO and Russia’s NPO Mashinostroyeniya

  • The missile derives its name from Brahmaputra and Moskva rivers. 

  • The missile is capable of being launched from land, sea, sub-sea and air against surface and sea-based targets and has been long inducted by the Indian armed forces.

  • BrahMos is a two-stage missile with a solid propellant booster engine. 

  • Its first stage brings the missile to supersonic speed (meaning faster than sound) and then gets separated. 

  • The liquid ramjet or the second stage then takes the missile closer to three times the speed of sound in cruise phase.

  • The missile has a very low radar signature, making it stealthy, and can achieve a variety of trajectories. 

  • The ‘fire and forget’ type missile can achieve a cruising altitude of 15 km and a terminal altitude as low as 10 m to hit the target
