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.
It uses an advanced inertial guidance system with maneuvering trajectory to hit its target, the Press Trust of India news agency reported.
The Prithvi-II missile was inducted into the Indian armed forces in 2003. The last trial of a Prithvi-II was successfully conducted on Feb. 16.
