India successfully tests DRDO-developed Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile
India today successfully tested the DRDO-developed Indigenous Technology Cruise Missile off the coast of Odisha.
The missile flew for around 150 km with an indigenous cruise engine. More tests would be conducted in near future, said sources.
The missile has been designed and developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). In June, India successfully test-fired its new generation nuclear-capable Agni Prime missile from a defence base off Odisha coast.
The surface-to-surface ballistic missile was test-fired from a mobile launcher off the Abdul Kalam Island in Odisha at 10.55 am, said a DRDO source. The sleek missile of the Agni series has a range of 1000 to 2000 km. Its trajectory was monitored by sophisticated tracking radars along the coast line.
