India test-fires n-capable Agni-V missile
Sunday September 15, 2013 10:50 AM, IANS

India Sunday test-fired its longest-range Agni-V nuclear-capable missile for the second time in less than one and a half years, defence sources said.

The missile can hit targets deep inside China and Pakistan, they said.

It was test-fired from the Inner Wheeler Island, a launch site in the coastal district of Bhadrak, about 200 km from state capital Bhubaneswar.

It was not immediately clear whether the test was successful.

The first test of this home-grown missile, with a range of more than 5,000 km, was carried out successfully from the same site April 19, 2012.

It is likely to go through a series of more tests before being inducted into the armed forces, the sources said.
