Army to get steep-dive BrahMos missile regiment for China front
NEW DELHI: The NDA government has given the final go-ahead for the Army to induct and deploy an advanced version of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile, with “trajectory manoeuvre and steep-dive capabilities” for mountain warfare, in the northeast as a conventional deterrent against China+ .
Sources said the Cabinet Committee on Security, chaired by PM Narendra Modi, cleared this fourth BrahMos+ regiment at a cost of over Rs 4,300 crore. The regiment consists of around 100 missiles, five mobile autonomous launchers on 12×12 heavy-duty trucks and a mobile command post, among other hardware and software.
The 290-km range BrahMos is a tactical or non-nuclear missile with “nine times more kinetic energy than sub-sonic missiles” for greater destructive potential. Jointly developed with Russia, it has become the preferred precision-strike weapon for the Indian armed forces.

Man the thing is that India never expected the 1962 war because .. just 2-3 months before the war nehru went to china and said “india chini bhai bhai ..” and even our soldiers didn”t have boots which can withstand heavy snow at that time. Today we are much better equipped. But still a long way to go as we are losing significant air power. Either induct rafale or go for eurofighter typhoon .. and buy 50 aircrafts ready to be inducted into airforce. Similarly our armed forces should be given bulletproof wests.
India will get kicking from China again.
Yeah cannot trust the chinese anymore so better to be ready than sorry
