Prithvi-2 missile successfully testfired

India successfully testfired on Wednesday the indigenously developed nuclear capable Prithvi-2 missile at night as part of a user trial by the Army from a test range off Odisha coast, an official said.

Two Prithvi-2 missiles were testfired consecutively and both tests met all parameters, the official said from the Interim Test Range at Chandipur.

The trial of the surface-to-surface missile with a strike range of 350 km was carried out from a mobile launcher from launch complex-3 of the ITR between 7 pm to 7:15 pm, he said.

It was a routine trial, he added.

The night time testfire of Prithvi-2 was conducted successfully from the ITR on February 21, 2018.
