successfully conducted an autochthonous Prithvi-2 missile test of indigenously developed nuclear capability as part of an Army use test from an Odisha test range, defense sources said.

The top-level surface-to-surface missile exploded around 7.30pm from the launch range 3 of the Integrated Range Test (ITR) in Chandipur near Balasore and the trial was successful, they said.

The last test of Prithvi-2, conducted after sunset on September 23 from the same base, was also successful.

The test of the missile, which has a strike distance of 350 km, was carried out by a moving launcher, said a Defense Research and Development (DRDO) official.

“The rocket trajectory was tracked by radars, electro-optical tracking systems and telemetry stations from DRDO along the Odisha coast,” he said.

The missile was randomly selected from the production stock and all launch activity was carried out by the Army Strategic Force Command (SFC) and monitored by DRDO scientists as part of a training exercise, defense sources said.

Weak crews aboard a ship stationed near the designated point of impact in the Bay of Bengal monitored the terminal events and the collision.

The Prithvi-2 missile is capable of holding 500-1,000 kg of warheads and is powered by liquid twin engines, sources said.

The sophisticated missile uses an advanced inertial guidance system with a maneuvering trajectory to hit its target, they said.

Already introduced into the armaments of the Indian Defense Forces in 2003, the nine-meter-long ‘Prithvi’ was the first missile developed by DRDO under the Integrated Missile Development Program (IGMDP).
