ZEE TV: India test fires strategic missile Agni-III

[url]Balasore, April 12: India has test launched its most powerful nuclear capable Agni-III, the Intermediate Range Ballistic Missile (IRBM), from a range on the Orissa coast on Thursday. Agni’s last test flight had failed when it plunged into Bay of Bengal shortly after launch.

The missile, with a range of over 3,000 km, was test fired from the Wheeler`s Island in the Bay of Bengal, close to the coast in Bhadrak district.

This was the second test launch of the missile. [/url]

Arun,

Something interesting from Rajiv's link: "The missile is said to have a diameter of 18.2 m." For sure the DDM meant length there. The number seems too precise to have been pulled from the DDM's musharaff.

Shiv,

Ahh ... I did not think of it that way. You are probably correct. In hind sight, that is not too surprising: I am still waiting on the 200 cm diameter Trishul.

Congrats to DRDO, and to the GoI for having the balls to do the test. I suspect that DRDO may have had some help from ISRO in this development.
We need Surya next.

The news just says that the missile was test fired without confirming if the test has achieved the target!

From China Town

India's current crop of missiles are mostly intended for confronting neighboring archrival Pakistan. The Agni III, in contrast, is India's longest-range missile, designed to reach 3,000 kilometers (1,900 miles) _ putting China's major cities well into range, as well as targets deep in the Middle East.
