Posted on Dec 3, 2019

India's missile series Agni III also failed the first test capable of carrying ballistic missiles but failed in Orissa.

According to a report by New Indian Express, Agni III was destroyed in the Abdul Kalam Iceland, located in the coastal area of ​​Orissa, which was the third test of an Indian missile in the past one night.

The Indian website has cited sources citing that the missile fell into the sea after passing the first phase, while the missile appeared at a distance of 115 km.

He said the missile had deviated from the fixed flight path, and the mission team had to eliminate it on the way.

According to the report, the experience was considered very important because the technical aspects were being verified in terms of use and the ability to carry weapons in the darkness of the night was being tested.

The Indian Army's Strategic Forces Command (SFC) conducted the experiment and was supported by the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO), all part of a training exercise on the use of missiles.

The Indian authorities have not released a final report on the failure, but a preliminary investigation revealed that there were technical errors during the preparation of the missile.

The website quoted sources as saying in its report that the missile was all right and was going under the mission in the first phase, but there was a sudden uproar that could potentially lead to an error in the preparation.

The failure of the Agni III is not the first failure of Indian missile tests since the Agni-1 and Agni-II had failed the test phase earlier.

India tested a fire-to-missile in 2009 that failed to deliver the desired results.

According to the report, the Agni III has already been handed over to the Indian Armed Forces in 2011, capable of carrying both conventional and one tonne of nuclear weapons.

According to Indian media reports, the missile is 17 meters long and 2 meters wide, weighs 50 tonnes and could have targeted all major cities of Pakistan and China but failed during the trial.

Remember that this year, India also experienced a failure in the experience of sending its own shuttle to space, which was shown live worldwide.
