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.
