Philippines, India to sign USD 375 mn deal for sale of BrahMos missile today

New Delhi: The Department of National Defense of the Republic of Philippines and India's BrahMos Aerospace Private Limited (BAPL) signed a contract on Friday for the sale of a Shore Based Anti-Ship Missile System to the Philippines, according to the Ministry of Defence.

The BAPL is a Defence Research and Development Organisation joint venture firm (DRDO). "The contract is a significant step forward in the Indian government's strategy of fostering responsible defense exports," the Ministry noted. At the signing of the contract, the Indian team of BrahMos Aerospace, led by CEO Atul D Rane, Deputy CEO Sanjeev Joshi, Lt Col R Negi, and Praveen Pathak, was present.

The Philippines Navy will use these missiles. For the past few months, the Defence Research Development Organisation and BrahMos Aerospace have been pushing hard for exports of this missile to friendly foreign countries.

The BrahMos export order would be India's largest in this industry, and it is projected to vault the country into the ranks of arms exporter countries, as more orders for the missile are expected from other friendly countries as well.
