Agni II test fire fails desired parameters

India today test-fired its medium-range nuclear-capable Agni II missile having a strike range of more than 2,000 km from an island off the Odisha coast as part of a user trial by the Army.

The test, however, did not meet all the desired parameters, official sources said.

The trial of the surface-to-surface missile was conducted from a mobile launcher at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) on Abdul Kalam Island at around 10.25 a.m., they said.

Agni II has already been inducted into the services and today’s test from Launch Complex 4 of the ITR was carried out by the Strategic Forces Command (SFC) as part of a training exercise.
