Vayu Aerospace and Defence - - Aviation & Defence Inindia -

Ac­cord­ing to reliable re­ports, the Gov­ern­ment of In­dia is in dis­cus­sion with some “friendly na­tions” for sale of Brah­Mos su­per­sonic cruise mis­siles and Akash air de­fence mis­siles, as also other mil­i­tary hard­ware and sys­tems. De­fence Min­is­ter Nir­mala Sitharaman has stated that, “The in­ter­est in In­dian mis­siles is def­i­nitely grow­ing and we are ad­dress­ing it. In­dia wants to sell them to the friendly na­tions.” Although she did not name any spe­cific coun­try, In­dia is known to have of­fered the Brah­Mos mis­sile to Viet­nam. There are also re­quests for the Brah­Mos mis­siles from seven other coun­tries in the Asia-Pa­cific, Latin Amer­ica and the Mid­dle East re­gions.
