India on Wednesday successfully test-fired the land version of the BrahMos cruise missile from a test range in Orissa's Balasore district in east India, Indian defense sources said.

According to Indo-Asian News Service, the missile, which is jointly developed by India and Russia and takes its name from the Brahmaputra and Moskva rivers, has a range of nearly 300 km and carries a conventional warhead of 300 kg.

It can achieve speeds of up to 2.8 Mach or nearly three times the speed of sound. It was tested at 11.02 a.m. from a mobile launcher from the integrated test range (ITR) at Chandipur, 230 km from the state capital Bhubaneswar.

The test was successful and fulfilled all the mission objectives, the sources said.
