    ... to a list of five countries topped by Vietnam

    Modi government has ordered Brahmos aerospace, which produces the missile to accelarate sales to a list of five countries topped by Vietnam.

    What is the meaning of "topped" here?

    Re: Brahmos.

    Vietnam is the first country in that list. Vietnam is at the top of the list.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: Brahmos.

    Where did you find this sentence? The punctuation is all wrong.

    There's also one spelling error and a capitalisation error in it. Whoever wrote that didn't do a good job.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually it's not the full sentence. I read it on the internet. I capitalised "bhramos" because its the name of the missile.

    Re: Brahmos.

    I capitalised "bhramos" because it's the name of the missile company​.
    So why did you spell it wrong and fail to capitalise it just then? This is the sort of carelessness which infuriates us so much.

    Actually, the company is called BrahMos Aerospace. You could have discovered this like I did with just a few extra keystrokes.

    Re: Brahmos.

    I was referring to the non-capitalisation of the word "Aerospace" which forms part of the company's name, as shown by Rover above.

    Re: ... to a list of five countries topped by Vietnam

    I have found the sentence online and the original did not have the misspelling of "accelerate".

    Re: ... to a list of five countries topped by Vietnam

    I can see how a missile would accelerate sales. Get those reluctant customers to sign on.

    You mean that these missiles are being sold forcefully.
