India successfully tested two tactical missiles at once


On Wednesday, India successfully carried out nightly tests of two Prithvi-II missiles simultaneously from the territory of the third launch complex at the Chandipur range of Balasor County. It is reported by India Today.


Tests of the ground-to-ground missile with a range of up to 350 km were carried out from a mobile launcher. Prithvi-II is equipped with two liquid engines and is designed to carry a warhead weighing from 500 to 1000 kg in a conventional or nuclear design. The missile also uses an inertial guidance system and is capable of maneuvering in flight.

The previous successful test took place on February 21, 2018. Prithvi-II is a single-stage missile designed for the needs of the Indian Air Force, while Prithvi-I is in service with the army, and Prithvi-III is a naval fleet country.

In addition, New Delhi also has medium-range missiles in its arsenal, capable of not only reaching anywhere in Pakistan, but also covering the territory of China, with which India has been smoldering several border conflicts for many years. In particular, Agni-II, also recently tested recently, has a range of up to 3500 km, and further development of the Agni-III family hits targets at a distance of 5000 km.

    That is what we lack so much. I hope that the work on creating an infantry-fighting infantry division is in full swing. Otherwise, everyone around is armed with infantry-infantry fighting systems, and we are wasting our time.

        So try to be stingy, being between China and Pakistan, with their arsenals of the BRDS and the Kyrgyz Republic. A matter of life and death.

    India has about 100 nuclear warheads in readiness, ballistic missiles Agni-I (700 km), Agni-II (2500 km), Agni-III (3500 km), intercontinental ballistic missiles Agni-IV (4000 km) and Agni-V ( 8000 km). India needs to be courted, because it is a major potential buyer.

    It’s not at all clear why commentators are so happy there ... 3500 km is just like Moscow? or get to Peter too?

      Rather, to Beijing and Islamobad. And in the long run to Washington.

          3500 really to Beijing, but 5000 is already to Peter, or even to my whereabouts ...

      So you build your rocket and launch it under your dances. Though under a lambada. What is the problem then?

    I must say that Agni IV was never considered an intercontinental missile. Here is Agni-V and the following - yes.

    To Moscow from the extreme point of India - more than 4000 km, to St. Petersburg - more than 4700
