World's first manoeuvrable supersonic cruise missile ..

Brahmos Aerospace, a joint collaboration between India and Russia, yesterday successfully fired the vertical launch version ( possible to be used in full 360 deg) of the world's first manoeuvrable supersonic ( at mach 2.8) cruise missile (air breathing, within the atmosphere..) meeting all its launch parameters successfully.

The world is sitting back and taking note ? When hypersonic ( at mach 7 - 8 ) versions come, will the world get the shock ?

Being a responsible democracy with the armed forces under the control of the politicians and the government, the world can indeed rest assured that it will never be used for offence ..

Kudos to Shivathanu Pillai ..
