BALASORE: Continuing its success story in research and development missile technology, India on Tuesday successfully test-fired the indigenously developed nuclear capable surface-to-surface ballistic missile Agni-I off Odisha coast.
The strategic forces command of the Indian Army conducted the user trial of the missile from Launch Pad-4 of the Integrated Test Range at Abdul Kalam Island near Balasore.
“It was 18th version of Agni-I, which could achieve all parameters within the stipulated time period,” said defence sources.
The missile was inducted into service in 2004, the sources added.
