India tests the “Pralay” missile off the coast of Odisha with success

According to a defense official, India successfully test-fired its surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) “Pralay” on Tuesday from Abdul Kalam Island off the coast of Odisha.

According to him, the missile was created by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in response to the nation’s security needs along its borders with Pakistan and China.

The official said that the missile, which was fired at around 9:50 a.m., accomplished all of its mission goals and that a series of tracking devices had been observing its path down the coast.

“Pralay” is a 500–1,000 kilogram short-range, surface-to-surface missile that can travel 350–500 kilometers. The Prithvi Defence Vehicle serves as the basis for the solid-fuel combat missile.

According to him, Pralay has been designed for deployment along the Line of Control (LoC) and Line of Actual Control (LAC).

He said that the Russian “Iskander” and China’s “Dong Feng 12” missiles, which were used in the current conflict with Ukraine, are comparable to the “Pralay” missile. Pakistan’s defense system also includes tactical ballistic missiles.
