Nuke Capable Nirbhay Successfully Test-Fired Off Odisha Coast

Balasore: In a significant development, nuclear-capable Nirbhay cruise missile, the country’s first indigenously designed and developed long-range cruise missile, has been test fored successfully from the Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Chandipur in Odisha’s Balasore district.

According to reports, the missile was test-fired from launch pad no-III at 11.55 am in presence of senior scientists of the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

The Nirbhay is a subsonic long-range land attack cruise missile that can be armed with a 300-kilogram warhead. The nuclear-capable, solid fuel, missile is capable of reaching speeds of 0.6-0.7 Mach and can strike land targets at a distance of up to 1,000 kilometres.

The last successful test launch of the missile took place at the Integrated Test Range on Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha in November 2017.

A previous test launch in December 2016 had ended in failure as the missile had to be destroyed in mid-air after it deviated from its course.
