India successfully test-fires ‘Pralay’ Missile Off Odisha Coast


BALASORE (Odisha), Nov 7: on Tuesday successfully test-fired its surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) ‘Pralay' from the Abdul Kalam Island off the Odisha coast, a official said.

The missile has been developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in view of the country's defence requirements along its borders with neighbouring China and Pakistan, he said.

The missile, launched around 9.50 am, met all its mission objectives, the official said, adding that a battery of tracking instruments monitored its trajectory along the coastline.

‘Pralay' is a 350-500 km short-range, surface-to-surface missile with a payload capacity of 500-1,000 kg. The solid-fuel, battlefield missile is based on the Prithvi Defence Vehicle.

Pralay' has been developed for deployment along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Line of Control (LoC), he said.

He said ‘Pralay' missile can be compared with China's ‘Dong Feng 12' and Russia's ‘Iskander', which was used in the ongoing war with Ukraine. Pakistan also has tactical ballistic missiles in its defence system.
