- India test-fired its medium-range nuclear-capable Agni II missile having a strike range of more than 2,000 km from an island off the Odisha coast as part of a user trial by the Army.
- The test, however, did not meet all the desired parameters, official sources said.
- The trial of the surface-to-surface missile was conducted from a mobile launcher at the Integrated Test Range (ITR) on Abdul Kalam Island at around 10.25 a.m., they said.
- Agni II has already been inducted into the services and today’s test from Launch Complex 4 of the ITR was carried out by the Strategic Forces Command (SFC) as part of a training exercise.
