  BRAHMOS Anti Ship Missile
The BrahMos (surface launched) and BrahMos A (air launched) cruise missiles are designed to be able to attack surface targets from a low altitude of 10 meters, at a speed of Mach 2.8, from a range of 290 km.
BrahMos can be launched either in vertical or inclined position and will cover 360 degrees.
The high cruise and terminal speed of the BrahMos is posing a significant challenge for the attacked target, as it leaves significantly less time for deployment of countermeasures.
