A symbol of DRDO’s technological excellence and India’s strength, the missile took off majestically at 0850 hrs from DRDO’s Launch Complex at Wheelar’s Island, off the coast of Odisha, India, flew on a predefined path and reached its destination with expected precision.

A major milestone, this second successful test of Agni 5 has demonstrated the maturity, repeatability and robustness of the system, paving the way for initiation of productionisation and subsequent induction. The launch also clears the way for
its canisterisation. The Agni 5 missile, in its operational form is designed to be stored and launched from the canister, enhancing its storage, operational readiness, transportability, response time and shelf life.

Defense Minister Mr A.K. Antony congratulated all the Scientists of DRDO and said that “DRDO Scientists have made the country proud”. National Security Advisor(NSA) Mr Shiv Shankar Menon congratulated DRDO Scientists and said that the event is a milestone in the long range Missile era of India.
