BrahMos was developed by India with help from the Russians and was launched at the complex III at 10:35 am in the fully operational configuration. The launch was successful but the missile had failed to reach the pre-coordinated targets as it fell down into the sea.
ITR authorites had said that the launch was perfect and denied that they were any objectives that weren't met by the test. DRDO, Defence Research and Development Organization had conducted the test and it was a successful test experimentally said the ITR's director MVKV Prasad.
