Sources in the Defense Ministry said on Thursday that the Agni-5 nuclear-capable ballistic missile has been successfully tested at night, which can hit targets up to 5,400 kilometers, amid heightened tensions with China following clashes along the de facto border in Arunachal Pradesh last week.
The test was conducted to validate new missile technologies and equipment, which has demonstrated that the missile can now hit targets further away, they said.
Odisha’s Abdul Kalam Island was used to launch the intercontinental nuclear-capable ballistic missile.
Although the test took place days after the clashes, it had been planned in advance. Before the incident in Arunachal’s Tawang, India had announced its intention to test a long-range missile and issued a NOTAM or Notice to Airmen.
