India successfully test-fired nuclear weapons-able Dhanush rocket from a ship, off the Odisha drift on Thursday.
The ship based rocket was propelled at 11.02 a.m. by work force of the Strategic Forces Command (SFC) from an Offshore Patrolling Vessel (OPV), which was profound inside the ocean, for its full scope of 350 km, as per Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO) rocket researchers.
It was an impeccable mission and the rocket sprinkled down close to the target point with high level of precision, they said. Dhanush, a moving rocket is a maritime variation of Prithvi-II, and can convey an atomic payload of 500 kg.
It can target both area based and ocean based targets. The rocket has as of now been drafted into the equipped administrations and the SFC faculty haphazardly got the rocket from the creation parcel for Thursday’s trial, which was completed as a feature of normal client preparing. Dhanush was one of the five rockets grew by the DRDO under the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program.
