New Delhi: In a major milestone, the Brahmos supersonic cruise missile was Wednesday test fired for the first time from a Sukhoi-30MKI fighter jet of the Indian Air Force.

The missile hit a sea-based target in the Bay of Bengal from the combat jet.

"The successful maiden test firing of Brahmos Air Launched Cruise Missile (ALCM) from Su-30MKI will significantly bolster the IAF's air combat operations capability from stand-off ranges," the defense ministry said.

The target was a decommissioned ship in the Bay of Bengal.
