Agni II Test Tonight: Reports

India is likely to test its nuclear capable Agni-II Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM) for the first time during night, media reports cited defence officials as saying in Balasore Orissa on Monday.

The trial is expected to be conducted from the Wheelers Island off Orissa coast tomorrow, they said.

“Range integration work in Integrated Test Range (ITR) for the proposed trial has been completed and if final check-up in the sub-system of the missile is found flawless, the mission will be taken up tomorrow,” they were quoted as saying.

A special ‘strategic forces team’ raised by the Army would conduct the trial with necessary logistic support by various ITR laboratories and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) scientists.

This will be the first time the test will be conducted at night, the officials added.
