  • Varieties of flight trajectories
  • "Fire & Forget" principle
  • Universal for multiple platforms
  • Low Radar Signature
  • Simplicity of technical operations
  • High lethal power
  • Higher effectiveness
  • Higher destructive capability aided by the large kinetic energy of impact
  • Shorter flight times leading to lower target dispersion and quicker engagement

Superiority of the BRAHMOS Supersonic Anti-ship Missile over a Subsonic Long Range Anti-ship Missile :

  • In Velocity by 3 times
  • In flight range by 2.5 - 3 times
  • In seeker range by 3 - 4 times

Russia not so keen on selling Brahmos to other countries ?

Sunday,Jan 21 Banglore/Moscow: Ahead of President Vladimir Putin's arrival (on the Republic Day of INDIA), A top Russian Defence Official commented

"This is a very lethal and potent weapon system (the Brahmos Missiles), which can upset balance of forces in an region where it may appear, be it in our neighborhood.Indian Ocean or Latin America"

Colonel. General Antoly Mazurkevich said,

"We are not keen on giving it to other countries, be it China or any other friendly nation"

Colonel. General Antoly Mazurkevich is the head of International Cooperation Department of the Russian Defence Ministry.

So What Makes Brahmos so Dangerous ?

Though India's aggressive marketing tactics of powerful defence weapons can be cited as one reason, the main reason for Russia's reluctance is because the Brahmos Missile is a very powerful highly lethal Missile with a high range capacity but currently it has been bottle necked to a range of 300km adhering the MCTR (Missile Technology Control Regime) .

But this range of 300km can be extended further illegally which may cause Disastrous results.

"We are not worried about it as we have nuclear weapons but this (illegal extension of range) may pose threat not only to India but also to our other friends and allies"

Rajini o r Jaya - Who is having more popularity?

There is a popular story saying that wherever you go, you will find rajinikanth fans. Rajinikanth was bragging to Jayalalitha one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them." Tired of his boasting, jayalalitha called his bluff, "OK, Rajini how about Tom Cruise?" "Sure, yes. Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it." So rajini and jayalalitha fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise shouts, "Thalaiva! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"

Although impressed, Jayalalitha is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, she tells rajini that she thinks rajini knowing Cruise was just lucky. "No, no, just name anyone else",rajini says. "President Bush", jayalalitha quickly retorts. "Yes", Rajini says, "I know him, let's fly out to Washington". And off they go. At the White House, Bush spots Rajini on the tour and motions him, saying, "Rajini, what a surprise? I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up."

Well, jayalalitha is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced. After they leave the White House grounds, she expresses her doubts to Rajini who again implores her to name anyone else. "The Pope", Jayalalitha replies. "Sure" says Rajini "My folks are from Poland, and I've known the Pope a long time." So off they fly to Rome.

Rajini and jayalalitha are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Rajini says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope." And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican.

Sure enough, half an hour later Rajini emerges with the Pope on the balcony. But by the time Rajini returns, he finds that jayalalitha had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to jayalalitha' side, Rajini asks her, "What happened?" Jayalalitha looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the man next to me asked, "Who's that on the balcony with Rajini?"

HOW IS IT ??? ;)

Beijing Fishing in INDIAN Waters ?

Seychelles a tiny island group is now one of the most talked
news in INDIA. Why so ?


Read On:2007-1-30
Beijing: President Hu Jintao has announced his plan on an eight nation tour to Africa.He would be visiting West Africa's Cameroon then Liberia, then to Sudan in the east,Zambia,Namibia,South Africa,Mozambique and Seychelles.
Seychelles a tiny island nation in the Western part of Indian Ocean consisting of 115 islands and a population of as low as 85,000 people.
So why is this Island in the high profile list of Beijing?Its Certain that Mr. Hu Jintao is not visiting there for a massage or a good vacation.
His visit clearly reveals the growing Chinese Naval Interest in theINDIAN Ocean.This doesn't come as a big surprise to New Delhi as this wasn't the first time the Chinese were showing such an interest. A couple of years ago India successfully halted a possible Navy assistance form China to Seychelles byoffering “INS Tarmugli” at a timely manner and thus avoided what could have caused a serious power imbalance in the Indian Ocean in the future.

Current Situation:
China is actively indulging with Islands like Sri Lanka, Maldives,Mauritius and Madagascar in order to establish its maritime presence in theIndian Ocean.
If China becomes successful in establishing maritime supremacy in Indian Ocean, it will be able to prevent India's freedom of movement in its own water.

Such a maritime sphere of influence will give Beijing options for exercising its power as it sees fit, and thus causing serious power imbalances in the region.

My Views: Time For India to Act Fast to Secure its ocean from the Chinese.
The Only Ocean in the World that is named after a country and its people is the INDIAN Ocean and it rightfully belongs to the INDIANS.
Terms Used:INS Tarmugli:An Indian Naval War Ship
