BALASORE, ODISHA. As part of capability enhancement endeavour, a major milestone was achieved on March 11, 2017 when an enhanced version of the BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missile with an Extended Range (ER) was successfully test fired from the Integrated Test Range ( ITR) Chandipur at sea in Balasore, off the coast of Odisha.
