NEW DELHI, May 3 (Xinhua) -- Indian army successfully test-fired an advanced version of Brahmos cruise missile on Tuesday, state-run broadcaster All India Radio (AIR) said Wednesday.

The Brahmos land-attack cruise missile was test-fired in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the broadcaster said, adding, "The land-to-land configuration of the missile was launched from a mobile autonomous launcher."

A senior army officer was quoted as saying that the test-firing of the missile demonstrated the weapon's unmatched lethality of hitting the center of a designated target with bull's eye precision.

Indian navy successfully test-fired land attack variant of supersonic cruise missile Brahmos in April.

Defense officials said the majority of the frontline ships of Indian navy are capable of firing this missile.
