India successfully carries out a test launch of an indigenously developed nuclear-capable Prithvi-II missile
The Defence officials announced a successful training launch of the short-range ballistic missile, Prithvi-II was carried out from the Integrated Test Range, Chandipur, off the Odisha coast, on Tuesday.
The missile struck its target with high accuracy. The user training launch successfully validated all operational and technical parameters of the missile, a Defence Ministry official said, adding that the Prithvi-II, a well-established system, has been an integral part of India’s nuclear deterrence.
A successful night-time test of the Agni-5 nuclear-capable ballistic missile, capable of striking targets at ranges up to 5,000 kilometers with a very high degree of accuracy, was carried out in December last year. The test was also carried out in Odisha and the range of the missile can be further increased based on the results of the testing.
The test of Agni 5 was carried out to ensure new equipment and more advanced technology in the missile. The tested Agni-5 ballistic missile was lighter than before.
