i suppose one can only guess ER land attack version ? ..maybe a 1000 km
The number of improvents that we are adding to Bhmos is mind boggling (from Indian side).
OTOH, rus has offered only 2 improvents from base Onyiks version...1. 1000km Brahmos(800+km) , 2. Brahmos-Mini (Brahmos -NG). Rest offers are hypersonic versions.
Onyiks was tested for 800+ km in 2019 and it is known as On(y)iks - M. This year this technology came up for discussion. Panel under Rajnath Singh found the price they were asking too steep.
Rather than taking the offer, in my perceived opinion, it may be that the indian team should have unleased in the last tested Brahmos, its homegrown tech thats seems very niche. In essence they are sculpting their own path for their Bhmos.
And there seems to be many trick up our sleeves.
PS..it may be that we may not need their On(y)ik-M tech. Just in case if there were any confusion.
