India Successfully Tests Upgraded Version of Ballistic Missile Killer


The PDV (Prithvi Defence Vehicle) tested on Tuesday is set to replace the Prithvi Air Defence (PAD) in India’s multi-layered ballistic missile defense program that currently comprises two components-the PAD for high altitude interception and Advanced Air Defense (AAD) Missile for lower altitude interception.

The upgraded version of India’s domestically-produced high-altitude interceptor missile PDV is now closer to being declared fully fit, as it successfully killed a simulated target from a defence facility off the cost of Odisha on Tuesday.

The PDV is designed to destroy missiles at exo-atmospheric altitudes of 50-150 kilometres and be fired from a range of around 2,000 kilometres. Read more
