New Delhi: The Indian Navy on Saturday successfully demonstrated the accuracy of an extended-range land attack Brahmos supersonic cruise missile from the stealth destroyer INS Chennai.

The missile hit the intended target with pinpoint accuracy after traversing an extended range trajectory and performing complex manoeuvres, the Navy said.

"Both Brahmos missile and INS Chennai are indigenously built and highlight the cutting-edge of Indian missile and ship-building prowess," the Indian Navy said in a statement.

"They reinforce the Indian Navy's contribution towards the Atma Nirbhar Bharat and Make in India endeavours," the Navy said in a statement.

This achievement establishes the Navy's ability to strike even deeper and influence land operations further away from sea, when and where required, it said.

Earlier, the Navy test fired the cruise missile from the stealth guided missile destroyer INS Visakhapatnam ahead of the President's Fleet Review. Developed by India-Russia joint venture BrahMos Aerospace, the missile is equipped with stealth technology and a guidance system with advanced software for precise target acquisition.

The Missile is one of the fastest supersonic cruise missiles in the world. It can be launched from submarine, ships, aircraft or land.
