Brahmos in our existing ships are fired from an inclined launcher, not VLS per my understanding. My assumption was that Brahmos would be launched from the submarine torpedo tube.
Some fact checking:
Brahmos: length 8.4m. Dia: 600mm
Type 53-65 torpedo (in Kilo): length 7.2m. Dia: 533mm
Kilo torpedo tube dia: 553mm
So, my earlier conclusion was wrong - if the test was done from a Kilo torpedo tube, it couldnt have been the Brahmos. Unless some retro-fitting was done (in which case, it could very well have been the Sagarika as well
). Back to square one.
