New Delhi, April 21: The Indian Navy successfully undertook the firing of BrahMos Land Attack Supersonic Cruise Missile from a ship today.

This variant of Long Range BrahMos Missile was fired from Indian Naval Ship Teg, a Guided Missile Frigate, on a target on land.

The majority of the frontline ships of Indian Navy, like the Kolkata, Ranvir and Teg classes of ships, are capable of firing this missile.
