India successfully test surface-to-surface ballistic missile ‘Pralay’

New Delhi: India achieved a significant milestone by conducting a successful test of the ‘Pralay,’ a surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missile (SRBM) from the Abdul Kalam Island, located off the coast of Odisha.

The missile flawlessly fulfilled all its mission objectives

Developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), this missile is a crucial addition to India’s defense capabilities, primarily focused on safeguarding its borders adjacent to China and Pakistan.

Pralay’ has been developed for deployment along the Line of Actual Control (LAC) and Line of Control (LoC). ‘Pralay’ missile can be compared with China’s ‘Dong Feng 12’ and Russia’s ‘Iskander’, which was used in the ongoing war with Ukraine. Pakistan also has tactical ballistic missiles in its defence system.

During the launch earlier on Tuesday, the missile flawlessly fulfilled all its mission objectives, according to a defense official. The trajectory of the Pralay missile was vigilantly tracked by a battery of monitoring instruments along the coastline, reaffirming its accuracy and efficiency.

‘Pralay’ is a 350-500 km short-range, surface-to-surface missile with a payload capacity of 500-1,000 kg. The solid-fuel, battlefield missile is based on the Prithvi Defence Vehicle.
