Yes capable. It was quite a challange to fit the small special pkg, in the small cone with hot compressed engine air flow ducts around. The thermal load budget is v significant. I believe a nabhakiya aayudh of ~10kt.
Note that designed & test <> operationalized.

What is operationalized is conventional only to make it a everyday use weapon by field commamders.

Getting nervous- will the test take place due to weather? will the test be successful? All things a Jingo suffers from

I am just amused at the fact that the phoren trackers are doing a run around for nothing when these missile launches are announced and then cancelled.

Yes I am worried too about the trackers, especially during dangerous events like cyclones or even beeeeg waves. The Indian coast guard should keep checking on them twice a day and may be towing inwards for safe harbour. If you can't disturb the trackers at least keep checking well for goodness sake, may be share a bottle of wine.

The cyclone passed some 200 km east of Vizag. Areas close to Vizag do not seem to have had high winds/rain on Nov. 8. In any case, no news of any K-4 test has come soon after that test (except maybe for the first time in 2014). The only other news of a K-4 test was in 2016, when Hemant Rout wrote something about it a week later. But the NOTAM for that test was only for 700 km. Could it be that the K-4 was only tested once ?
