Indian Army on Tuesday successfully test-fired an advanced version of BRAHMOS land-attack cruise missile in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, showcasing the formidable weapon's precise striking capability.

The land-to-land configuration of BRAHMOS missile was launched from a Mobile Autonomous Launcher (MAL) for its full-range, demonstrating the weapon's unmatched lethal ability of hitting the centre of a designated target with "bull's eye" precision.

The test conducted on Tuesday was the fourth successive successful launch of the Block -III version of BRAHMOS LACM, which once again stamped the missile's impeccable precision striking capability.

Meeting all flight parameters in a copybook manner while conducting high-level and complex manoeuvers, the supersonic cruise missile successfully hit the land-based target with desired precision in a top-attack configuration.
