INDIA’S DHANUSH UNDERGOES 1ST NIGHT TEST
Kept under wraps so far, it is now known that the Indian Navy successfully test-fired the indigenously developed ship launched ballistic missile Dhanush on November 14 last year for the first time during the night from a warship INS Subhadra anchored about 45 km off the coast of Puri and Paradip in Odisha. Sources confirm the test was successful. The Dhanush is a ship-launched version of the Prithvi-II ballistic missile with a range of 350 km. The test was conducted from the INS Subhadra by the Strategic Forces Command (SFC). The Dhanush is capable of deploying a tactical nuclear warahead, in addition to conventional warheads deployed on the Prithvi series of missiles.
