NEW DELHI: India's offensive capacity, especially against Pakistan, is set to take a huge step forward with New Delhi and Moscow deciding to jointly develop a new generation of Brahmos missiles+ with 600 km-plus range and an ability to hit protected targets with pinpoint accuracy.
This range enables these missiles to strike anywhere within Pakistan. That Russia can work with India to produce these missiles is thanks to New Delhi joining the Missile Technology Control Regime+ (MTCR) in June this year.
MTCR guidelines+ prohibit its members from transfer, sale or joint production of missiles beyond 300-km range+ with countries outside the club.

Good but India must make use of these at least on terrorists who are always striking India at will.
Not just Pakistan, we have a bigger threat from China. India should have a capability to reach any corner of China without detection.
why to publish this. ?
This is a great development that will give additional boost to the country''s defence capabilities.
Why the hell you are publishing this..
Publish when India actually fire these missiles on Terrorists.
The actual range of Brahmos is much greater then the 300 km as informed by India. The actual range of all the missile developed by India is of much higher ranges. The Brahmos missile speed is between 2.8 Mach to 3 Mach. At that speed the missile can cut ship in two part or can cripple any ship. If we reduce the weight of war head to 200 kg its range will increase to 450 km plus.

To tell Pak that it should forget about "taking on" India even in their dreams. However, It might result in China and Pak working together to develop similar cruise misses but China doesn't have a cruise missile that is anywhere near Brahmos at the moment.

about a 1000 nuclear tipped Brahmos missiles facing towards Porkistan should be enough, to start with!
Solution is only one and that is Annex Pakistan with India.
