New Delhi: India will buy locally-manufactured BrahMos supersonic missiles as a part of its 3,000 crore ($431 million) defence-spending plan.

A panel chaired by defence minister Nirmala Sitharaman also approved buying armoured recovery vehicles, or ARVs, for its battle tanks, according to a statement from the ministry.

BrahMos will be procured for two navy ships that will be built in Russia, while local firm BEML Ltd. will produce the ARVs, the ministry said.
