  • India successfully test-fires nuclear-capable cruise missile Nirbhay
21-12-2016 | Pratidin Bureau. |

India today successfully test-fired its potent nuclear-capable long range cruise missile 'Nirbhay' from the Integrated Missile Test Range in Chandipur, Odisha today.
 
The state-of-the-art missile developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation was test fired successfully from the launch complex 3 of the ITR at 11:56 hours.
 
Nirbhay is very manoeuverable and can fly at tree-top level, making it difficult to detect on radar, and strikes targets more than 700 km away carrying nuclear warheads, giving India the capability to strike deep into enemy territory.
