GUWAHATI, India (AA) – After successfully test firing an “interceptor missile” last week, India once again test fired its nuclear capable Prithvi-II missile on Wednesday, according to local media reports.
India’s military research and development agency sources were quoted as saying that the short-range surface-to-surface missile was tested in Odisha state on Wednesday morning.
With a strike range of 350 kilometers (218 miles), the Prithvi-II is capable of carrying 500 to 1,000 kilograms of warheads and is thrusted by liquid propulsion twin engines.
