India successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear capable long-range ballistic missile Agni-5 with a strike range of 5,000 km. The missile was launched from Dr. Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast.

The surface-to-surface missile was launched with the help of a mobile launcher from launch pad number 4 of the Integrated Test Range at Dr. Abdul Kalam Island, earlier known as Wheeler Island, in the Bay of Bengal.

This was the sixth trial of the state-of-the-art Agni-5 ballistic missile. The trial was a total success as the missile hit its target with pinpoint accuracy after covering its full distance.

Unlike other missiles of the series, Agni-5 is the most advanced with new technologies in terms of navigation and guidance, warhead, and engine.
