India successfully tests Pralay missile

GovernmentIndia successfully tests Pralay missile

The defence ministry reported that India successfully tested the locally developed surface-to-surface missile Pralay on Thursday, the second test of the conventional missile in two days. The missile was tested by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) off the coast of Odisha on the Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Island.

It may be fired from a mobile launcher and has a range of 150 to 500 kilometres, depending on payload.

“The missile was tested for a greater payload and a different range in Thursday’s launch to confirm the weapon’s precision and lethality,” the ministry said in a statement. Range sensors and instruments, including as telemetry, radar, and electro-optic tracking systems installed along India’s eastern shore and ships stationed near the impact point, observed the launch.

The mission goals were met during the flying test, according to the government.

India fired an improved model of the Agni class of missiles from the Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Island test facility on December 18, just days after the twin flight tests.

As previously reported, India’s new generation nuclear-capable ballistic missile, known as Agni P, can hit targets at a maximum range of 2,000 kilometres and will strengthen India’s credible deterrence capabilities.

It’s a canister-launched missile with a range of 1,000 to 2,000 kilometres.

The 700-km Pakistan-specific Agni-I, 2,000-km range Agni-II, 3,000-km range Agni-III, 4,000-km range Agni-IV, and 5,000-km range Agni-V missiles are among the Agni missiles developed by DRDO.

The Agni P test comes a week after India successfully tested a new locally built anti-tank missile and completed a series of tests of indigenously developed extended range rockets, which will be inducted into the armed services soon.

The helicopter-launched stand-off anti-tank (SANT) missile and the Pinaka extended range (ER) rocket systems were successfully tested on December 11. SANT has a 10 kilometre range.

In comparison to the previous variant, the new Pinaka rocket system has a longer range and is shorter in length. The ER form of the Pinaka Mk-1 rocket, which has a range of more than 48 kilometres and was created to meet the needs of the Indian Army, has a range of 36 kilometres.
