INS Arihant successfully test fires ballistic missile

New Delhi: India on Friday successfully test-fired a submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) from INS Arihant.

All operational and technological parameters of the weapon system have been validated

The missile was tested to a predetermined range and impacted the target area in the Bay of Bengal with very high accuracy, the Defence Ministry said in a statement.

All operational and technological parameters of the weapon system have been validated, the statement added.

The successful user training launch of the SLBM by INS Arihant is significant to prove crew competency and validate the SSBN programme, a key element of India’s nuclear deterrence capability, the ministry said.

A robust, survivable and assured retaliatory capability is in keeping with India’s policy to have ‘Credible Minimum Deterrence’ that underpins its ‘No First Use’ commitment, it added.
