Two Brahmos Surface to Surface missiles were fired by Indian Air Force at Trak Island in the Andaman Nicobar group of islands, a Defence Ministry spokesperson said here on Tuesday.

The twin firings on October 21 and 22 were carried out as a part of the routine operational training, the spokesperson said.

The missile engaged the designated mock targets close to 300km away. A direct hit on the target was achieved in both the cases.

Firing of the missile has enhanced the IAFs capability to engage the ground targets with pin point accuracy from a mobile platform, she said.
