No threads created for this ongoing missile project either



LANKKAVI / Malaysia / March 28. / TASS /. As a result of the modernization, the Russian-Indian cruise missile BrahMos will receive a maximum speed of five sound speeds and become hypersonic.

TASS was informed by the head of the joint venture BrahMos Aerospace from the Russian side - managing co-director of the company Alexander Maxichev at the LIMA 2019 exhibition in Malaysia.
"We hope that in the coming years we will just reach the point that some scientists call hypersound. Somewhere, probably, 4.5-5 Machs [Mach number shows the dependence of the sound velocity on the flight altitude]," said Maxichev.
He noted that the company is constantly engaged in increasing the speed of the BrahMos rocket and increasing its combat capabilities. The maximum speed of the current modification of BrahMos is 2.8-3 Mach.
PJ-10 BrahMos - supersonic cruise missile with a solid starting accelerating stage. It was developed jointly by the Russian NPO of mechanical engineering (the city of Reutov) and the Organization of Defense Research and Development of India (DRDO). It is a modification of the Soviet Onyx anti-ship missile. The name of the project is formed by combining the names of two rivers - the Indian Brahmaputra and the Russian Moscow River.

The first test launch of BrahMos took place on June 12, 2001 at the Changipur test site (Odisha state, India). Production is deployed in enterprises both in Russia and in India.



MOSCOW, Apr 8 - RIA News. The range of the Bramos cruise missile now exceeds 400 kilometers, the task is to bring it up to 500, the co-director of the Bramos company from the Russian side, Alexander Maksichev, told RIA Novosti.
"We will come to hypersound by increasing the range, we have already confirmed 400 kilometers, in order to increase the range to 500, we need to increase the speed. Now the rocket flies at a speed of 2.8 mach Through modernization we will reach the speed of hypersound, this is more than 4.5 mach "- said Maxichev.


According to the agency, the NPO Mashinostroeniya based on the Kyrgyz Onyx, which is in service, has developed a new sea-based cruise missile Onyx-M with a maximum firing range of 800 km and increased accuracy of destruction. The missile is equipped with an advanced control system that allows you to hit targets with great accuracy, and it also has increased protection against electronic warfare. Tests of the new CD will begin soon.


Expert: onyx-M missile tests with a range of 800 km have already been carried out

According to the chief editor of Arsenal of the Fatherland magazine Viktor Murakhovsky, the range has been increased due to the new fuel composition, as well as a lighter and more compact onboard radio electronics

The Onyx-M sea-based cruise missile with an increased range of up to 800 km has passed throw tests, before taking into service it is necessary to conduct flight tests at the declared range. About this TASS told a military expert, chief editor of the magazine "Arsenal of the Fatherland" Viktor Murakhovsky.

"As far as I know, the throw tests have already passed, a series of real launches is needed to confirm the characteristics, and after that a decision will be made on putting into service," Murakhovsky said, answering the question about the timing of the appearance of a new missile in the fleet.

Again, no thread here because it's not a project in the way this site uses the word. Actual deployed systems can be discussed in the aerospace or military subforums.
