The Centre announced on Friday that India successfully tested a new generation ‘Agni Prime’ ballistic missile. According to defence officials, the missile was tested off the coast of Odisha at around 9:45 a.m.
According to officials, the missile reached its maximum range and all test objectives were met. “The accuracy and reliability of the system have been established with this third consecutive successful flight test of the Agni Prime missile,” they said, according to news agency ANI.
The performance of the system was validated using data from a variety of range instruments, including radar, telemetry, and electro-optical tracking systems, they continued.
They continued, “In order to cover the full trajectory, the systems were deployed at various points, including two down-range ships at the terminal point.
