Shock to China! Philippines to buy BrahMos missile from India, approves deal worth $ 374.9 million

China, showing its eyes from the South China Sea to Ladakh, has suffered a major setback. South East Asian country Philippines has approved the purchase of world's fastest supersonic anti-ship cruise missile BrahMos with India . This entire missile deal will be worth about $ 374.9 million. An agreement will soon be signed between the two countries in this regard. This is the first foreign order for the BrahMos missile. Interestingly, the Philippines is an ally of the US, but for military readiness against China, it has relied on the BrahMos missiles jointly made by India and Russia.

It is believed that soon Vietnam, another neighboring country of China, can also make a deal with India for the BrahMos missile. Negotiations are going on between the two countries regarding this missile deal. Indonesia and several Gulf countries have also shown interest in purchasing the missile. BrahMos Aerospace is an Indo-Russian joint venture, which produces supersonic cruise missiles. It can be launched from submarines, ships, aircraft or land.

Flight takes off three times faster than the speed of sound 
This cruise missile flies at a speed almost three times faster than the speed of sound. This variant can cover a distance of about 290 km. In the past few days, the Philippines has made several defense deals to modernize its armed forces. Earlier, Deputy Chief of the Russian Mission Roman Babushkin had said that India and Russia are planning to export BrahMos missiles to the Philippines and several other countries.

Philippines army will be even stronger
Experts believe that this purchase is also expected to further enhance India's strategic ties with the Philippines. The South China Morning Post published from Hong Kong quoted experts as saying that the Philippines' decision to buy the world's fastest supersonic missile would greatly increase the strength of its military. Through this missile, the Philippines will be able to defend its coastal areas. Significantly, the dispute with the Philippines over China's rights in the South China Sea has been going on for a long time.
