Friday was a success for India as it successfully test fired the new nuclear warheаd with Dhanush ballistic missile from a Navy ship off the eastern coast. The missile launch was a part of a Navy’s training exercise.
The Dhanush is a naval variant of the surface-to-surface Prithivi II missile which was also developed by India and has a range of 350 kilometers.
The new ballistic missile is capable of carrying a payload of up to 500 kilograms and can carry both nuclear and conventional warheads. The biggest plus of this missile is the fact that it can adapt to both shore and sea-based targets. The development of ballistic missiles is an important part of India’s defence program.
