New Delhi: Russian Security Adviser, Nikolay Patrushev, along with a high level delegation accompanied by Alexander Kadakin, Ambassador of the Russian Federation to India, visited the BrahMos complex at New Delhi.

Dr. A.S. Pillai CEO & MD, BrahMos Aerospace said that the high level visit is highly encouraging for the JV to show more results. He presented the progress made by the JV in the last 10 years and the possible areas for future collaborations.

Patrushev said that BrahMos is a remarkable achievement in a short time and is the best way in which India and Russia can cooperate in high-technologically advanced defence & aerospace products. Patrushev, who arrived on Monday for a two-day visit, said that “the JV BrahMos is a bright illustration of successful work of Russian & Indian scientists and designers. It is based on highest trust and respect. I wish great successes in future ventures in further strengthening of Russia-India friendship.”

Alexander Kadakin said that the BrahMos project is a dream made true by the joint efforts of the Russian and Indian scientists and congratulated the pioneers of BrahMos with its magnificent work. Bringing together the best of the brains of the two countries not only brings down the cost but makes the system developed highly advanced and reliable overtaking other countries. BrahMos is on the helm of the world of cruise missiles and is a great tribute to the power of scientific communities of our two nations.

Each missile system costs nearly Rs.100 million ($2 million).

He also mentioned that the first ship being built in Kaliningrad has been installed with Vertical launcher and FCS delivered by BrahMos with ITF launch being planned this year itself as per schedule in Baltic sea. We have now 4 versions- Sea to Sea, Sea to Land, Land to Sea and Land to Land already fully developed and operational. The work on the underwater launch and air version development is under progress, he added.

BrahMos Aerospace Ltd plans to sell approximately 1,000 of them.

Dr. Pillai highlighted the enormous efforts from the Indian and Russian scientific communities to realise the best system in the world. He thanked the Russian government for the trust bestowed on the Joint Venture.
