Agni-II missile successfully test-fired

Bhubaneswar :  India Thursday successfully test-fired its nuclear capable Agni-II strategic ballistic missile from a military base in Odisha, a defence official said. The test was conducted from Wheeler s Island in Bhadrak district, around 200 km from here, at about 9 a.m. by army personnel as part of a training exercise.

"It was a 100 percent success. It was a user trial by army personnel," M.V.K.V. Prasad, director of the Integrated Test Range, told IANS.

The medium-range missile with a range of over 2,000 km has been already inducted into the army and is part of the Strategic Forces arsenal for nuclear deterrence.

The two-stage missile, equipped with an advanced high-accuracy navigation system and guided by a novel state-of-the-art command and control system, is powered by a solid rocket propellant system. Defence Research and Development Organisation first tested Agni-II in 1999. Since then, it has been tested several times.
