The Strategic Forces Command of the Indian Army test-fired the Agni-II surface-to-surface medium-range nuclear-capable missile from launching complex IV of the Integrated Test Range on Saturday evening, defence sources said.

Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), the Agni-II has already been inducted into the armed forces. The 20-metre-long, two-stage ballistic missile has a strike range of 2,000 km. It has a launch weight of 17 tonnes and can carry a payload of 1,000 kg, the sources said.

The Agni-II is a medium-range ballistic missile (MRBM) with two solid-fuel stages and a Post Boost Vehicle (PBV) integrated into the missile’s Re-entry Vehicle (RV).
