Nuke-capable Agni-I missile test-fired

The medium-range ballistic missile was test launched from the premier missile testing centre at 10:20 am.

The 15-meter-long missile, which has the capability to hit a target at a distance of 700 km carrying both conventional as well as nuclear warheads up to one tonne, has already been inducted into the Indian Army. This was, in fact, the missile’s ninth test flight. The missile was last test fired on March 28 this year.

After the test launch, the path of the missile was tracked by radars of the ITR as well as a ship of the Indian Navy. “The missile followed the trajectory perfectly and reached the designated target in the Bay of Bengal,” ITR Director S P Dash said.
