The BrahMos is a medium-range supersonic missile that can be launched from submarines, ships, planes or land. The Indian Air Force used air-launched BrahMos missiles in the Ladakh region during the border stand-off with China.“We are buying the BrahMos missiles,” Defence Secretary of the Philippines, Delfin Lorenzana, said after the signing ceremony without giving any further details.

MANILA (Philippine Daily Inquirer/ANN): The Philippines and India have signed an agreement for a potential supply of BrahMos cruise missiles, a product of collaboration by India and Russia, which the Philippine government hopes would boost coastal defence.
Philippine Defence Undersecretary Raymund Elefante and Indian Ambassador Shambu Kumaran signed an implementing agreement on Tuesday (March 2) at Camp Aguinaldo, headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines, according to the Philippine Department of National Defence on Facebook.
The agreement involved the procurement of defence material and equipment by the Philippines from India, an emerging superpower rival of China in Asia.
"We are buying the BrahMos missiles," said Philippine Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, who witnessed the signing ceremony.
He did not provide details of the procurement plan yet.
BrahMos are medium-range supersonic (faster than the speed of sound) missiles that can be launched from submarines, ships, planes or land. It is considered to be the fastest supersonic missile in the world.
Lorenzana said the agreement served as guide for the Philippines and India on "policies and procedures in the defence procurement".
It also served as a "legal framework for the procurement under the government-to-government modality", Lorenzana added.
The missile system, which can be used for coastal defence and ground attack, would boost Philippine military firepower in the face of threats to its maritime territory, coming mainly from Chinese aggression in the South China Sea.
Plans to procure the system stalled last year due to budgetary constraints caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Hindustan Times reported last year that India has offered a US$100 million line of credit to the Philippines for the weapons system purchase, but a government source privy to the deal said it could be more.
In separate occasions in January this year, Ambassador Kumaran and BrahMos Aerospace chief executive and managing director Sudhir Mishra visited the Philippine Army and Philippine Marines, the potential users of the BrahMos missiles. - Philippine Daily Inquirer/Asia News Network

Meanwhile Chinese in PakWhen is the Supa Powa delivering the Brahmos to Vietnam?
Do the daft Indians really think Russia will allow sale of Brahmos to countries that threaten it's strategic ally China?
If Brahmos is being purchased for China then they have many Supersonic missiles to counter this tiny purchase which Sino flankers can carry so no need to send Su-35s as those can be used against IAF with J-16sBrahMos is superior to Kh-35U carried on Chinese Su-35S. Better range 290 km compared to 260 km and supersonic compared to subsonic.
If they need quality weapon systems, they will go to Americans, Russians, or Europeans. The only reason they accept India weapons is the price.welcome move, all these countries need quality weapon systems. With Tejas coming along with locally made weapons suit it will be an excellent choice too.
India has been talking about the possible sales of Brahmos to Vietnam from 2010.Vietnam next for Brahmos, Aakash NG, Tejas and many more....
Yes, potential. That is the word I often see in India's statement.so many missiles fast tracked and tested during the china border standoff ... each one has true potential to go export....
I can't imagine anyone from your MOD guys keeping a straight face while trying to sell Tejas to other airforces.With Tejas coming along with locally made weapons suit it will be an excellent choice too.
