India Will Buy Supersonic Missiles in $431 Million Arms Spending
(Bloomberg) -- India will buy locally-manufactured BrahMos supersonic missiles as a part of its 30 billion rupees ($431 million) defense-spending plan.
A panel chaired by Defense Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also approved buying armored recovery vehicles, or ARVs, for its battle tanks, according to a statement from the ministry.
BrahMos will be procured for two navy ships that will be built in Russia, while local firm BEML Ltd. will produce the ARVs, the ministry said.
