According to the Press Trust of India, the deployment comprises 100 BrahMos missiles, five mobile autonomous launchers on 12×12 heavy-duty trucks, and a mobile command post, as well as associated hardware and software.

The missile has been developed by BrahMos Aerospace, a joint venture between Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India and NPO Mashinostroeyenia (NPOM) of Russia.

"The 'fire and forget' missile can be installed on ships, submarines, aircraft and ground vehicles."

With a flight range of up to 290km, the BrahMos missile can be launched against ships and land-based targets and reach a maximum speed of Mach 3.

The 'fire and forget' missile can be installed on ships, submarines, aircraft and ground vehicles, and offers high supersonic speeds on a variety of flight trajectories, BrahMos Aerospace said in a statement.

It offers nine times as much kinetic energy and flight ranges up to three times longer than existing subsonic cruise missiles.

Three regiments of the Block-III version of BrahMos have already been installed by the Indian Army, and the missile's land-attack variant entered service in 2007.
