Prithvi Does it Again

New Delhi: October 8,2013

A missile unit of the elite Strategic Forces Command (SFC) successfully launched the second consecutive Prithvi missile today from the test range nearChandipur, off the Odisha Coast as part of a scenario based live salvo launch training exercise. Like the launch on 7th October 2013, this launch too was flawless and achieved all its targeting and technical parameters set out for the training exercise.

 

In the words of an SFC spokesperson ‘Both the launches were conducted as a culmination to a strategic training exercise. The aim of this exercise to war game our readiness to undertake launches in various contingencies under varied conditions, thereby was validated.

 

Prithvi missiles are indigenously produced and are equipped with improved high accuracy navigation and manoeuvring system. Inducted into India’s Strategic Forces Command in 2003, the Prithvi II missile, the first missile to be developed under India’s prestigious IGMDP strengthens India’s nuclear deterrence.
