The Agni-V ballistic missile, capable of delivering a 1.5-ton nuclear warhead out to over 5,500-km was tested today from India’s Integrated Test Range (ITR) in the Bay of Bengal. The launch at 8.52AM today was the missile’s second after its debut test in April last year. The missile’s systems underwent a degree of fine-tuning after the first test, purported to give the weapon system a far greater degree of accuracy. Details of today’s test, videos and photos shortly.
