    Yes it's Nirbhay. Undeclared range 1500 kms. Nuclear capable. To be mounted on the Su-30MKI Super-30 variant along with the Brahmos.

    u r a bit wayword, the 40 Su30MKI meant for air launched Brahmos are only meant to carry Brahmos.

    The Nirbhay will be attched possibly with Tu142M3 or the P-8 Poseidon that in Indian Navy plans to get in next 3-4 years.

    Also the range is possibly more than 1500 km otherwise it wont be called a long range cruise missile.

    To joydeep ghosh:

    I am not wayword. Plz check Wiki Su-30MKI. It is a combo of 3 Brahmos per MKI Super-30 OR a combo of 1 Brahmos in centerline + 2/? Nirbhay.

    Also, yes the known range is 1500 but in actuality it is 1500+. Plz do not forget that missile ranges are a function of mass, i.e. missile mass + fuel mass + warhead mass. So, ranges can be flexible.
