New Delhi: India successfully test-fired the 3,500 km strike range nuclear-capable K-4 submarine-launched ballistic missile off the coast of Andhra Pradesh, further strengthening capabilities to hit enemy targets from submarines.
According to government sources, the test-firing was carried out from an underwater platform in the sea during the daytime.
The missile will be deployed on the fleet of the Arihant Class nuclear submarines, which is being developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation and built by India.
K-4 is being developed by India for its submarine force. Other than K-4, another underwater missile is the 700 kilometre strike range BO-5.
