"There will be a noticeable increase in the missile’s range, not by several times but noticeable," he said.

The company has already started the research stage to increase the cruise missile’s range.
The second stage, during which the research work will be embodied in a real project, will take from two to three years, Leonov said.

The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile is produced by Russian-Indian Brahmos Aerospace Company set up by Russia’s Machine-Building Scientific and Production Association and India’s Defense Research and Development Organization in 1998.

The missile’s name comes from the names of two rivers, i.e. the Brahmaputra and the Moskva. The missile has a range of 290 kilometers (180 miles) and carries a warhead weighing from 200 to 300 kilograms.
