INDIA LIKELY TO TEST BRAHMOS CRUISE MISSILE IN ANDAMAN AND NICOBAR ISLANDS SOON



The BrahMos cruise missile is one of many variations, according to experts, and will be tested in the Islands next week. The Andaman and Nicobar (A&N) Islands in the Indian Ocean will likely host an Indian missile test the following week.



The test could occur between November 29 and December 1, according to a Notice to Airmen, or NOTAM, issued by India. The no-fly zone, which is a sign of a missile test, suggests that the test missile could fly 450 kilometers.




This development occurs only a few weeks after two Chinese spy ships sailed into the Indian Ocean, forcing India to postpone a missile test.


India announced a no-fly zone over a portion of the Indian Ocean for the days of November 10 and 11. However, it was abandoned after the Yuan Wang VI, a Chinese intelligence gathering ship, entered the waters just days before the test.


A few days after the Chinese espionage ship that had previously arrived in Hambantota, Sri Lanka, this year reached the area.


These ships can follow ballistic missiles and satellites and receive signal intelligence thanks to their surveillance equipment.


Later, India published a second NOTAM for November 23 and 24. On November 23, the Agni-III ballistic missile was successfully launched by the Strategic Forces Command from the A P J Abdul Kalam Island, which is located off the coast of Odisha.


The BrahMos cruise missile is one of many variations, according to experts, and will be tested in the Islands next week.


This year, India has tested the BrahMos missile numerous times from the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. India tested a BrahMos missile there in February using a land-based launcher. The BrahMos cruise missile's long-range variant was tested from the Islands in March.


The BrahMos anti-ship variant was test-fired in April by the A&N Command, the only tri-services command of the Indian armed forces.
