Bhubaneswar, March 28 (IANS) India Sunday successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Agni I missile that can strike a target 700 km away, an official said.
The missile was tested as part of user-trial from a facility on Wheeler Island near Dhamra in the district of Bhadrak, some 170 km from here, by the Indian armed forces.
“It was a fantastic launch,” director of the test range S.P. Dash told IANS.
The Agni-I has already been inducted into the armed forces. It is 15 metres tall and weighs 12 tonnes. It can carry nuclear payloads weighing up to one tonne.
Developed under India’s Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme, the missile was first tested in May 1989.
The armed forces also successfully tested two nuclear-capable missiles, Dhanush and Prithvi II, Saturday in Orissa.
