New Delhi, Feb 26 (ANI): India today successfully test fired its first-ever under-sea ballistic missile at a place 10 km from Visakhapatnam.
After the successful testing of the missile India joined the group of five countries, the US, Russia, France, and China who are equipped with this technology of nuclear deterrence.
The missile K-15, with a range of 700-km, was test fired from a pontoon immersed in the sea, as India does not have a submarine for such an exercise.
Recently, the Chief Controller of the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), S Prahlada, had said that only one test will ratify the missile system. (ANI)
