India Successfully Tests Prithvi-II Missile

On June 2, India successfully test-fired its Prithvi-II ballistic missile from Abdul Kalam Island (formerly Wheeler Island) off the Odisha coast in East India.

“As part of user training exercises, the test was conducted by the Strategic Forces Command (SFC) of the Indian Army with logistics support from DRDO. The missile used for the test was picked randomly from the assembly line. Carrying a dummy payload, it covered the desired striking range and met all mission objectives successfully,” said an official.

The Prithvi-II is an indigenously build short-range, road-mobile, liquid-propellant ballistic missile with a range of 350 km.
