And shiv, Did ur friend made a detailed report and inquiry regarding how the test failed and stuff? the answer is a BOLD NO. these days its becoming sooooooooo common with these guys to come up with some news which is half cooked and etc etc…..But on the reality side…none of the sooooooo called reporters are doing their job correctly.May be they just want a report to fill the 2.5×2.5 section on the mazgine/news paper.But if they put some more effort and do some investigation to know wot actually happened behind the screens, these days we dont have to blame… Read more »

Russians collaborated generously with us for the co-development of brahmos,which is nothing but an already abandoned old yakhont russian missile there must have been some catch to it! coz arms market is like that for us! Even after paying heavily through our nose ,we end up with shoddy stuff!This is not the case with brahmos alone! DRDO should mend its ways! one side pakis are threatening to go in for war with us in any moment with their battle ready chinese made baburs and Raads ,DRDO is supplying half baked products to our armed forces!DRDO is a shoddy organisation with… Read more »

Oh man Shiv these DODO always comes up with new ingenious or is indigenous way of success [*] The DRDO first claimed success. [*] but had to backtrack when General Kapoor insisted on visiting the target site. [*] found that the missile had overshot by a kilometer. Then comes a carrom ball from pillai: “The missile performance was absolutely normal till the last phase but the missile missed the target though it maintained direction,” Brahmos Aerospace Corporation Director Sivathanu Pillai admitted later Now the Russian roulette, with DODO khichdi: Rs 8,500 crore (October 2008 prices) for arming two regiments compared… Read more »

I cannot believe this. Just because one test has no achieved its objectives, the Army has decided to dump such a phenomenal weapon system. It is absolutely natural for some tests to not meet set test objectives since the missile is still under development.

Absolutely ridiculous!

The SCAN optronic multi-spectral sensor and its airborne data links are the very same as those used on the Popeye Lite PGM. This sensor and the data link are activated only in the terminal stage of the missile’s flight and the activation ques are obtained from the ring laser gyro-based navigation system. Based on the Indian Express report claiming that the BrahMos overshot the target by a kilometre, it means that the PROBABLE cause of the failure was the delayed activation of the SCAN sensor caused by a faulty (or erroneously calibrated) RLG-based INS which was fabricated by HAL. It… Read more »

@First Anon Did ur friend made a detailed report and inquiry regarding how the test failed and stuff? Report yes, see the info from both pillai and Army officials. Inquiry…..are you stupid?? the guidance system worked fine during the in lab testing and procedures.But failed in the real test Are you suggesting that weapons were meant to work in LAB environment but not in real test?? Having N number of similar objects and marking one with red X ……..think abt it and the situation during a 2.8 mach flight envelope. Was it not the objective of the test in first… Read more »

@ Above anon A$$ Hole…. All tests are not meant to achieve objectives right away. Each and every reply seems to be a reporter point of view rather than a citizen/techie point of view. If you asshole design a engine for the first time and you want to test it ,U dont go to the testing ground by integrating it with the vehicle.U fist of all test the engine in ur lab and see the torque and RPM and compression ratios and wotever first and only if you feel comfortable and then only you go and integrate it to your… Read more »

Brahmos to be inducted only after it proves capabilities: Army

New Delhi (PTI): With the BrahMos failing to meet the mark in last month’s test, the Army on Sunday made it clear that the supersonic cruise missile would be inducted only after it proves its capabilities.

“Army would want DRDO to prove the capabilities of the missile before we move the proposal to the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) for purchasing of missiles from them,” Army sources said here.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating!!!! DRDO siphons off a sizeable amount of moolah from the defence budget to pay for these escapades and their scientists (?).

@PRASUN – That each unit of Mi-17V-5 costs US$3 million is not due to “hyperinflation” (which I am sure u said in jest) – it will go to line the pockets of ppl in the Defense Ministry.

Hi ShivSometimes I m impressed with your journalistic adventurism and thank you for taking the other side of the view into your wisdom. Hope you are not going to close this blog in future. Let me tell you what all you defence correspondents’ jokers are writing and thinkng. Military is a hard subject and most of you are crime reporters who are covering this beat. Rajat Pandit, Vishal Thapar, and couple of them are basically crime reporters covering defence. Just you get into Pentagon re0port of why embedded journalists were pressed into war coverage in Iraq. Thus, it will give… Read more »

To Anon@9:30PM: FYI there are two types of ring laser gyro-based INS used for BrahMos. One is on the land-based MAL and the other one is on board the missile itself. That same RLG-INS is now being retrofitted on to the Prithvi SS-150 launchers/missiles and on the Pinaka MBRL launch vehicle. These developments were extensively written upon and photographed and reproduced at the DEFEXPO’08 show dailies published last February. The RLG-INS is being series-produced by HAL’s Avionics Division. Kindly contact BrahMos Aerospace, Bharat Dynamics and HAL to get the clinching evidence, lest you choose to disbelieve me.

BrahMos failed as US shut its eyes in the sky?

DRDO scientists have launched an investigation into the failure of the BrahMos army version missile, especially why its GPS system couldn’t link onboard computers with hovering satellites eventually crippling its guidance system and keeping it from achieving mission

Huh..That kinda explains

Prasun Sengupta,
It is hard to believe anything you say, for obvious reasons. What ever you’ve been saying all these years doesn’t come true.
More over your brand of journalism smacks of unreasonably favouring certain parties, even when the obvious presents itself, which makes everyone wonder if stories of Lifafa journalism are true in your case.
