New Delhi, Dec 23: The second trial of Pralay, India’s conventional ballistic missile was conducted off the APJ Abdul Kalam island in Odisha today. The trial of the missile was successful as it reached a range of 500 kilometres.
This is a significant development as India did not have a conventionally armed ballistic missile. Pralay is India’s first conventional ballistic missile and it would be deployed in case of any missile attack from the western or norther borders. The development is also significant as the two tests were conducted successfully on consecutive days.
