The Strategic Forces Command (SFC), fired the medium-range Agni-II missile propelled by the solid rocket propellant system, with a range capability of over 1,700 km utilising the range facility at Wheelers Island, off the Odisha coast on April 7.
The entire trajectory of the missile was tracked by a battery of sophisticated radars, telemetry observation stations, electrooptic instruments and naval ships.
Agni-II missile is equipped with stateof-the-art avionics, advanced high accuracy navigation system and guided by an innovative guidance scheme. An SFC spokesman said, the flight “most importantly conveys our preparedness to meet any eventuality. The mission “fully validated our operational readiness as also the reliability of the systems and the missile.”
