Philippines - The Philippine government is finalizing a deal with the Indian government for the acquisition of BrahMos shore-based anti-ship cruise missile system. 

The deals comes after the country's budget department released initial funds worth nearly P5 billion for the acquisition of anti-ship missile system and other military equipment.

The Philippine military will be the first foreign nation to buy India's BrahMos to bolster its defense capability. 

The BrahMos supersonic cruise missile features network-centric architecture, multiple trajectories, and way-point capability that allow the weapon to engage land and naval targets beyond the horizon, according to the defensepost website.

It is equipped with a solid-propellant booster that provides the system with initial acceleration and a liquid-fueled ramjet system that enables a speed of Mach 3.

Additionally, the weapon system’s air-breathing ramjet propulsion technology provides the BrahMos with a longer range than missiles powered by rocket propulsion.

The ship and land-based BrahMos missiles carry a semi-armor-piercing warhead weighing 200 kilograms (440 pounds), while the aerial variant can carry a 300-kilogram (661-pound) warhead. They can intercept surface targets at a minimum altitude of 10 meters (32 feet).

The weapon can launch from ships, mobile launchers, submarines, and even military aircraft. It can also be used for coastal defense and ground attack.
