New Delhi: India on Wednesday successfully test-fired the supersonic cruise missile BrahMos having a range of around 400 km, officials said.

The test-firing of the missile was carried out by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) off the coast of Balasore in Odisha, the officials said.

BrahMos Aerospace, an India-Russian joint venture, produces the supersonic cruise missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft, or from land platforms.
