In a first ever for India, Philippines to buy BrahMos


India got its first-ever export order for BrahMos missiles on Friday when the Philippines’ Defence Ministry signed USD 374 million contract with BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited to supply an undisclosed number of missiles, military officials said.

The BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited (BAPL), an India-Russian joint venture, produces the supersonic cruise missile BrahMos that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or from land platforms.
