India Tuesday successfully test-fired its nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Prithvi-II missile from a military base in Odisha, a senior defence official said
The indigenously-developed ballistic missile with a maximum range of 350 km was fired from the Integrated Test Range at Chandipur-on-sea in Balasore district, about 230 km from Bhubaneswar.
"The test was carried out by the strategic forces command as a part of the regular training exercise. The test was successful and the missile was tested for its full range," test range director M.V.K.V. Prasad told IANS.
