India successfully carried out the test-firing of a new missile in the Agni series known as Agni-Prime on Monday off the coast of Odisha, officials said. The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully flight tested the new generation nuclear-capable ballistic missile from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam island at 10:55am off the coast of Odisha. “Various telemetry and radar stations positioned along the eastern coast tracked and monitored the missile. The missile has followed textbook trajectory, meeting all mission objectives with a high level of accuracy,” DRDO said in a statement.


Agni-Prime is an advanced variant of the Agni class of missiles and is a canisterised missile with a range capability between 1000 and 2000km, it said.

Last Friday, the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) successfully test-fired an extended range version of indigenously-developed Pinaka rocket at Integrated Test Range (ITR) in Chandipur off the coast of Odisha.

That day, 25 Enhanced Pinaka rockets, which can destroy targets at distances up to 45 kilometres, were test-fired in quick succession against targets at different ranges on Thursday and Friday. The 122 mm Caliber rockets were also launched from a Multi-Barrel Rocket Launcher (MBRL).

The test was due for a long time. The technologies developed for Agni IV and Agni V has gone into it. Some other technologies might have also gone into it which includes guidance from multiple positioning systems like GLONAS, GAGAN, GPS etc. along with multiple complementary guidance systems, BMD avoidance features.

Looks a lot shorter than regular.Agni 2 missile for the same range. Surely more weight reduction has gone into place. We know for sure now Agni 1 has been replaced by Agni 1 P.

The 1990s agni missiles that were in storage are being replaced by new missiles with improvements.
Nothing out of the ordinary.
Who is the intended audience of this?

Recently Indian media has speculated targeting the Grand Mosque in Makkah.
