    “When there’s a joint venture, both countries should abide by it”.

    When the Air-launched version of Yakhont other countries are after, doubt how can you prevent Russia from exporting the same.

    Yes, the argument can be made of development of air-launced Brahmos, but is it possible solely by the India, without Russian help?

    Hi Shiv,

    Interesting information, but the key question, which hasn’t been addressed, is WHY HAS THE C.C.S NOT CLEARED THE EXPORT OF BRAHMOS?

    I was at the Brahmos assembly plant in Hyderabad in January and my understanding is that the Brahmos component manufacturing and assembling capacity is nowhere near enough to allow exports. It will take a significant amount of time just meeting the Indian Army requirements. If the Air Force version is cleared and orders are placed, it will take even longer.

    So, as I understand it, prospective foreign buyers are being told that their orders can only be met in the year Zip.

    ajai: a very good point. i’m not familiar with what brahmos’ installed capacity is at the moment in hyderabad, but this adds another element to the problem!

    ndia, Russia to shortlist countries for exporting BrahMos

    New Delhi, (PTI): India and Russia will shortlist countries to which the BrahMos missile system, currently under production for the Indian Army and Navy, can be exported.

    “Indo-Russian joint venture BrahMos has completed development of the missile systems required for the Navy and Army and is currently producing the systems using Indian and Russian industries,” Minister of State for Defence Production, Rao Inderjit Singh, has said.

    In an interview to the premier journal ‘Indian Defence Review’, Singh said the Joint Supervisory Council for the project has already identified the countries to which the BrahMos missile system can be exported.

    Observing that the product would be exported to “friendly countries”, he said “the two governments will shortlist the friendly countries after carefully considering the security requirements of both India and Russia and the strategic relationship with these countries.”
