New Delhi: A successful launch of the Surface to Surface Ballistic Missile, Agni-5, was carried out on Wednesday, the Indian government said.

The testfired at approximately 1950 hrs from APJ Abdul Kalam Island, Odisha, the Indian government said in a statement.

The missile, which uses a three-stage solid fuelled engine, is capable of striking targets at ranges up to 5,000 kilometres with a very high degree of accuracy.

The successful test of Agni-5 is in line with India’s stated policy to have ‘credible minimum deterrence’ that underpins the commitment to ‘No First Use’.
