India successfully conducted a successful pilot test of Ballistic Missile Agni 5 capable of carrying nuclear weapons from Dr. Abdul Kalam Island near Odisha coast on Monday.
This missile is able to distinguish targets of up to 5,000 kilometers. Defense sources said that this is the seventh test of this missile developed from home to surface. Agni 5 is a three-stage missile, which is 17 meters long, 2 meters wide and capable of carrying up to 1.5 tons of nuclear weapons.
According to officials, unlike other missiles in this series, the Agni 5 route and direction is the most advanced in terms of explosive carrying tops and engines. A defense source said the trial of this missile was done on a mobile launcher from the launch pad number four on Integrated Test Range (ITR) on Dr. Abdul Kalam Island of Bay of Bengal on Monday afternoon.
According to officials of the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), the missile has been designed to accurately target the target point. This missile will be guided by the computer engaged in it.
