India on Tuesday successfully test-fired its nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Prithvi-II missile

In its effort to have a full-fledged multi-layer Ballistic Missile Defence system, India on Wednesday successfully test-fired its indigenously developed supersonic interceptor missile, capable of destroying any incoming hostile ballistic missile, from a test range off Odisha coast.

The test was conducted at about 9.40 am today.

Notably, Prithvi is India’s first indigenously-built ballistic missile. It is one of the five missiles being developed under the country’s Integrated Guided Missile Development Programme.
