India today successfully test fired two nuclear-capable 'Prithvi-II' surface-to-surface missiles at Chandipur, about 15 km from Balasore in Orrissa.
The indigenously built missiles, with a range of 350km were fired from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at 10:28 am IST and 10:33 am IST from mobile launchers, as part of the army's user trials, according to defence sources.
Two operationalised Prithvi (P-II) Missiles were successfully launched today within minutes of each other, by the Armed Forces as part of the operational exercises.
The launches took place at 10:30 am from the launch pad at Interim Test Range (ITR), Chandipur, Balasore, Orissa.
The two missiles, aimed at two different targets at 350km from the launch point, are reported to have met all the mission objectives.
Two Indian naval ships located at the targets, tracked and monitored both the missiles as they hit their targets accurately.
