Indian Army test-fired a surface-to-surface intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) Agni-III from a defence test facility off Odisha coast today, as part of its user training exercise.
Defence sources told The Indian Express that the indigenously built highly sophisticated missile blasted off from a mobile launcher at the launching complex–IV of Integrated Test Range (ITR) at Abdul Kalam Island at about 09.15 am Thursday.

The missile reached the pre-defined target with an accuracy of less than 100m upon its launch. The missile equipped with state-of-the-art avionics and advanced on board computer, has the latest features to correct and guide in-flight disturbances.
