India’s Agni-II-plus missile test fails (Lead)December 10th, 2010 - 4:00 pm ICT by IANS
Bhubaneswar/New Delhi, Dec 10 (IANS) The experimental launch of an Agni-II-plus missile failed Friday, the defence ministry said.
The missile “experienced a trajectory deviation immediately after lift-off” from the Wheeler island, off the coast of Orissa, “leading to the failure of the mission”, a ministry statement issued in New Delhi said.
“Detailed analysis is in progress. Many new technologies like composite rocket motor, indigenous ring laser gyro-based navigation system and road mobile launch were being tested in this mission.
“Many of these new technologies have been proved,” the statement said.
The missile, which has the capability to hit targets 2,500 to 3,000 km away, was tested in the presence of senior defence officials.
The Agni-II-plus is an intermediary between the Agni-II and Agni-III missiles.
