A cruise missile is a guided missile used against terrestrial targets that remain in the atmosphere and flies the major portion of its flight path at mostly constant speed. Cruise missiles are designed to deliver a large warhead over long distances with high accuracy (i.e. small circular error probability).
With all the talk about the Indian BrahMos missiles in these recent days, it’s good to look at the world’s top 10 cruise missile systems and see where this particular one stacks up. Very instructive.
How do you think this new BrahMos cruise missile stacks up against the U.S. Tomahawk? Sound off and share your opinions and comments in the section below.
