HAL handed over the first BrahMos missile integrated Su 30 to IAF in an exclusive event at Aero India 2015.
The Flight Clearance Certificate was handed over by Dr. K. Tamilmani, distinguished scientist and DG (Aero) to Air Marshal S.B.P.Sinha, Deputy Chief of Air Staff. The Aircraft Acceptance Certificate was handed over by Mr. A.M.Raja Kannu, DG (AQA) to Air Marshal Sukhchain Singh.
This unique programme was taken up as an indigenous challenge by HAL’s Nasik division in 2010. The team overcame several difficulties due to limited design data of Su-30 Mk I and received approval in Jan 2011 and order for integration was obtained from BAPL on techno-commercial merits against OEM in January 2014.
