Bhubaneswar: India Monday tested its long range nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Agni-IV missile from a military base in Odisha, sources said.
The new generation missile, which has the capability to hit targets 4,000 km away, was tested from a mobile launcher at the Wheeler Island off the coast near Dhamra in Bhadrak district, about 200 km from state capital Bhubaneswar.
The 20-meter tall missile weighs around 17 tonne and has two stages of solid propulsion.
