India’s indigenously developed short-range ballistic missile successfully tests night. The experiment was conducted at Balasore in Odisha. The missile was developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), a research institute responsible for the development of military technology in India.
Capable of carrying nuclear weapons, the surface-to-surface missile has a range of up to 350 km. The Prithvi missile has been part of the Indian Army since 2003. The test was conducted yesterday to test the efficiency of the missile in different conditions. The last night test of Prithvi-2 was successfully conducted on November 20 last year. Prithvi is a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead. It is reported that the missile has achieved the targets set by the Strategic Force Command.
The Prithvi missile was developed by the Defense Research and Development Organization under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. It is the first ballistic missile developed by India using indigenous technology. Dhanush is a variant of the Prithvi missile used by the Navy.
