New Delhi, Apr 18 (ANI): India is all set to test fire its 5,000 km range Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Agni-V on Wednesday from a test range in Wheeler island off the coast of Odisha.
The test firing will be as major leap forward in missile technology and military deterrent capability for the country.
The chief of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), V K Saraswat, had recently said the missile is being integrated at various facilities for the test launch.
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- 5.
India has in November last tested the 3,500-km-range Agni-IV missile giving muscle to India's deterrent capability against the military adversaries.
Agni-V is a solid fueled intercontinental ballistic missile. It will greatly expand India's reach to strike targets well beyond 5,500 km away. (ANI)
