Dhanush, Prithvi-II Ballistic Missiles Test Fired

Two indigenously developed, nuclear-capable ballistic missiles -- Dhanush and Prithvi-II -- were fired of the Orissa coast on 11 Mar 2011. Both missiles have a strike range of 350 km.

'Dhanush' was flight tested from naval vessel INS SUVARNA in the Bay of Bengal, surface-to-surface 'Prithivi-II' ballistic missile was test-fired within an hour from Launch Complex-3 of the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur-on-Sea.

"The flight tests were in text book fashion with the missiles reaching the target points with high accuracy," said ITR director S. P. Dash. "All the radars and electro-optical systems located along the coast tracked the missiles and monitored the parameters. The final event was witnessed from a ship located near the impact point," Dash said.

The missiles were launched by the Strategic Force Command as part of the regular user training exercise.

A successful demonstration of Ballistic Air Defence Missile System was held on 6 March, 2011, by DRDO. "The series of successful launches have boosted the morale of scientists and armed forces. The missiles have been integrated under the supervision of Missile Systems Quality Assurance Agency (MSQAA)," a DRDO release said.
