Philippines in talks with India to procure BrahMos supersonic cruise missile

The Philippines is seeking to acquire the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile system from India. Official sources told Jane's on 9 December that officials from New Delhi and Manila are in advanced negotiations about the number of missiles to be procured and the overall contract value, adding that they expect a deal to be signed "sometime in 2020".

Also part of the negotiations are after-sale logistics to induct the 292-km range BrahMos, as well as the instruction of the Philippines Army's 1st Land-based Missile System Battery (1LBMS Btry), which was activated in October at Fort Magsaysay, to maintain and operate the weapon system.
