- Defense sources claim that the test was done to validate brand-new machinery and tools on the lighter-than-before missile.
- It's been said that the sophisticated missile was created in a way that it might thwart interceptor missiles. After flying a set distance in midair, it can also alter its course.
The Indian armed services are currently planning to acquire the “Pralay” ballistic missile, which can attack targets from 150 to 500 km away, days after the nuclear-capable Agni V missile underwent a successful test. The missile had had two successful tests on two separate days in December 2021, and since then, the forces had been trying to acquire it and integrate it into India’s military forces.
It is significant to note that on December 15, India successfully conducted the testing of the Agni-V ballistic missile, which has a range of more than 5500 km. A confrontation between Indian and Chinese forces along the Line of Actual Control is taking place as Agni-V is being tested and the “Pralay” ballistic missile is being acquired (LAC).
India to acquire ‘Pralay’ missile
Indian military will have the advantage over border opponents thanks to the introduction of the “Pralay” missile. The solid propellant rocket motor and other modern technology on board “Pralay,” which has a range of 150 to 500 km, will be of great assistance to the Indian forces during the border clash.
Modern navigation and integrated avionics are features of the quasi-ballistic surface-to-surface missile Pralay. It’s been said that the sophisticated missile was created in a way that it might thwart interceptor missiles. After flying a set distance in midair, it can also alter its course. The enemy’s air defence systems and other valuable targets can also be fully destroyed by the missile.
India successfully test-fires nuclear-capable Agni-V
The night tests of India’s Agni-V ballistic missile, which has a range of more than 5500 kilometres, were successfully completed on December 15. Defense Research and Development Organization is the company that created the missile (DRDO). Off the coast of Odisha, on Abdul Kalam Island, the missile was tested at a defence installation.
Defense sources claim that the test was done to validate brand-new machinery and tools on the lighter-than-before missile. The trial demonstrated that the Agni-5 missile can, if necessary, increase its range.
The MIRV (Multiple Independently Targetable Reentry Vehicle) capability of the nuclear-capable Agni-V missile, which allows it to carry multiple warheads, makes it a potent addition to India’s defence arsenal. India will benefit greatly from the MIRV capability of Agni-V.
