Suc­cess­ful Prithvi launch

SP's MAI - - MILITARY -

Amis­sile unit of the elite Strate­gic Forces Com­mand (SFC) re­cently launched a Prithvi mis­sile from the test range at Chandipur, off the Odisha coast as part of a sce­nario based live launch train­ing ex­er­cise. The launch was flaw­less and achieved all its tar­get­ing and tech­ni­cal pa­ram­e­ters set out for the train­ing ex­er­cise.

“The launch was con­ducted as a cul­mi­na­tion to a strate­gic train­ing ex­er­cise. The aim of this ex­er­cise was to val­i­date our readi­ness by un­der­tak­ing launches in var­i­ous con­tin­gen­cies,” said an SFC spokesper­son.

Prithvi mis­siles are in­dige­nously pro­duced and are equipped with im­proved high ac­cu­racy nav­i­ga­tion and ma­noeu­vring sys­tem.
