Greek Academics bats for Indian BrahMos Missile acquisition to deter Turkish aggression

Emmanuel Marios Economou and Nikos K. Kyriazis, esteemed academics hailing from the University of Thessaly in Greece, have ignited discourse with their recent proposition. They assert the necessity for Greece to procure the BrahMos cruise missile system, a collaborative venture between India and Russia, for deployment across the Eastern Aegean islands.

Addressing Turkish Ambitions

The crux of the proposal revolves around thwarting Turkish aspirations in the Aegean Sea. Although the article refrains from explicitly citing Turkey’s territorial claims on the islands, it underscores the potential of the BrahMos system to establish a formidable barrier hindering maritime access for the Turkish navy. This, according to the authors, serves as a deterrent against Turkish expansionist endeavors, including the contentious “Blue Homeland” doctrine and disputed maritime agreements with Libya.

Cost-Effective Defense Strategy

Economou and Kyriazis advocate for the BrahMos as a cost-effective alternative to conventional naval assets. They posit that the approximate cost of a single BrahMos missile stands at $3.5 million, significantly lower than procuring and maintaining large warships susceptible to such advanced missile systems. They assert that a comprehensive package comprising 150 missiles along with launchers and radar systems would offer substantial savings while reshaping the dynamics in the Aegean, Crete, and Cyprus regions.

Disrupting Turkish Naval Tactics

The proponents hail the BrahMos as a potential “nightmare” for the Turkish navy, capable of disrupting their expansionist strategies outlined in the “Blue Homeland” doctrine. Moreover, they critique the legality of the Turkey-Libya maritime delimitation agreement, emphasizing its lack of a solid legal foundation.

Potential Implications and Challenges

While the proposal has sparked significant deliberation within Greece, its implementation remains uncertain. Factors such as the feasibility of such a substantial procurement and its potential ramifications on the already strained Greek-Turkish relations will undoubtedly shape the decision-making process.

The proposition put forth by Economou and Kyriazis underscores the urgency for Greece to adopt innovative defense strategies, such as the acquisition of the BrahMos missile system, to effectively counter Turkish aggression in the region.
