PanARMENIAN.Net - India's nuclear-capable Prithvi-II ballistic missile with a strike range of 350 km was successfully test-fired from the Integrated Test Range near here as part of user trial by the army, according to The Economic Times.

"The flight test of the surface-to-surface missile was conducted around 1100 hrs from a mobile launcher from ITR's launch complex-III at Chandipur," defense sources said.

Prithvi is the first ballistic missile developed under the country's prestigious Integrated Guided Missile Development Program and has the capability to carry 500 kg of both nuclear and conventional warheads with a strike range of 350 km.
