DRDO (Defence Research and Development Organisation) has started developing a
200-km strike range tactical ballistic missile ‘Pranash’. The missile is an
advanced version of the 150- km strike range Prahar missile which was being urbanized
for tactical missions. The surface – to - surface ballistic missile will be of
use for the Army and Air Force. It is a solid-propellant surface to a surface
missile which can travel at the speed of Mach two.
Earlier in December last year, India had also successfully conducted a night trial of its indigenously developed nuclear-capable Prithvi-2 missile as part of a user trial for the armed forces from a test range in Odisha coast.
