Prithvi-II missile successfully test-fired
The missile test was carried out from a mobile launcher from launch complex-3 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at about 1000 hrs, defence officials said. With a strike range of 350 km, the surface-to-surface Prithvi-II is capable of carrying 500 kg to 1,000 kg of warheads and is thrusted by liquid propulsion twin engines.
It uses advanced inertial guidance system with manoeuvring trajectory to hit its target.
The trial data of the missile trial conducted by the specially formed Strategic Force Command (SFC) were being analysed, they said.
