Agni-V test in a fortnight: DRDO chief

Delhi,Defence/Security, Sat, 31 Mar 2012 IANS

New Delhi, March 31 (IANS) India will join an elite group of nations such as the US, Russia and China with inter-continental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) when it tests the over 5,000-km-range Agni-V in a fortnight from now.


'The Agni-V will be tested sometime in the middle of April. The exact date has not been fixed, though,' Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) chief Dr. V.K. Saraswat told a press conference at the defence exposition currently in progress here.



Saraswat said the Agni-V will be close to the American ICBMs.



India has in November last tested the 3,500-km-range Agni-IV missile, a technology that will help it to cross the 5,000-km-range barrier when Agni-V is tested.
