India could boost BrahMos missile range to 1,000km as Russia to upgrade P-800 Onyx missile

Russia has started work to increase the range of the P-800 Onyx sea and land-based supersonic cruise missile to 1,000 kilometers and analysts have said that Russia‘s upgrade of the Onyx could prove significant for India as the Indian BrahMos missile is based on the P-800 Onyx missile.

BrahMos Aerospace has already extended the range of the BrahMos missile from 290 kilometers to 500 kilometers and is working on a 800 kilometers and 1,500 kilometers range version of the system that can be launched from Land, Water, and Air.

The long-range would be achieved by optimizing the cruise performance of the missileโ€™s ramjet engine and through the use of composites to reduce missile weight, facilitating enhanced fuel load and increase in speed.
