India: In demonstrating its operational preparedness, the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Tuesday successfully test-fired a BrahMos supersonic cruise missile from a Sukhoi fighter jet on the Eastern seaboard.
The “live firing” of the missile was carried out in close coordination with the Indian Navy, the IAF said.
The missile hit the target with accuracy and precision, officials said.
