BANGKOK (Sputnik) — Speaking at an ongoing Defense & Security military expo in Bangkok, a spokesman for BrahMos Aerospace, a Russian-Indian joint military venture, told RIA Novosti that formal negotiations have not begun.
"Southeast Asia is a promising market for us. During this exhibition, we have been visited by several high-ranking defense ministry officials from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. We have had no official talks yet, but there is a high probability that they will become our clients in the future," the spokesman said.
BrahMos, a word combining Brahmaputra and Moscow, is a short-range supersonic missile, which has been in use by the Indian Navy since 2005. The missile has a range of 180 miles and can carry a conventional warhead of up to 660 pounds.
