  • VOA News

India has successfully test-fired a medium-range surface-to-air missile for the second time in three days.

Indian defense officials say Monday's test was conducted at the country's main testing center at Chandipur in the eastern coastal state of Orissa.

They say the missile - known as Akash - was fired from a mobile launcher. It has a range of approximately 25 kilometers and can carry a warhead up to 50 kilograms.

The missile is one of five being developed by India's state-run Defense Research and Development Organization.

Nuclear-capable rivals India and Pakistan routinely test their missile systems. They have an agreement to notify each other before conducting the tests.
